Strictly Come Dancing star Giovanni Pernice has been forced to deny rumours he and girlfriend Georgia May Foote are engaged.

Taking to Instagram recently, Giovanni shared a loved-up black and white photo of himself and former Corrie star Georgia with his fans. In the photo, he and Georgia couldn't look happier and eagle-eyed fans were quick to spot Georgia was wearing a ring on her engagement finger.

Cue the slew of comments asking the pair if they are set to wed...

Many were convinced the sparkler was an engagement ring, but Giovanni made sure to set the record straight.

He told his followers: "Guys we are not engaged... This is a ring which means, in my tradition, that we are together... thanks for all the lovely comments!!"

Giovanni then added: "We are really happy together!!"

This isn't the first time he and Georgia have been forced to clear up such speculation, as she has been sporting the ring for several months now. Shortly after getting together, Georgia was spotted with the diamond accessory.

As you'd expect, many questioned at the time if she and Giovanni were engaged, but Georgia insisted that wasn't the case. She explained that the ring had been a gift from her beau and no proposal had been involved.

Georgia and Giovanni met while starring on the last series of Strictly. The pair were partnered together on the show and made it to the live final, where The Wanted star Jay McGuinness won the coveted glitterball trophy.

At the time, Georgia had been dating actor Sean Ward. According to reports, the pair split shortly after the Strictly final - it was claimed Sean struggled to cope with Georgia and Giovanni's close relationship, but neither he and Georgia have commented on this or publicly spoken about their break up.

Back in January, Giovanni confirmed he and Georgia are an official item. He shared a smitten selfie of the pair to Instagram. Since then, Georgia has gushed that the professional dancer is the 'best thing that has ever happened' to her.

She and Giovanni are now living together and moved into their London home back in February, and the couple recently had fans green with envy, after sharing their exotic holiday snaps from their recent trip to the Maldives.
