Strictly Come Dancing star Giovanni previously denied they were engaged, but Georgia was still questioned about it when she appeared on Celebrity Juice.

Host Keith Lemon asked her: "Is it true you've been wearing a ring?"

"Yeah, but it's not an engagement ring," Georgia replied, while acknowledging that she is wearing it on her engagement finger. "Right, I said this, this is an argument we had when he give it me."

Showing her ring to the camera, Georgia explained: "Right, in Italy he says that when you get a girlfriend and a serious girlfriend you get a ring. So they don't really do the engagement thing. You just get a ring and it's like a nice commitment but they have to wear it on that finger."

Keith asked her: "Like ownership?"

"Kind of, yeah," replied Georgia.

Still not believing her, Keith said: "Err yes, so big round of applause for their engagement!"

Poor Georgia shouted: "Noooo!"

Taking to Twitter after the show to set the record straight, Georgia said: "We are absolutely not engaged guys. Bloody hell... It's a gift and a tradition. If I was I would tell you, trust me."
