It looks like Strictly Come Dancing partners Georgia May Foote and Giovanni Pernice's relationship is getting serious...

They’ve only been together a month, but it looks as though things are getting very serious Strictly Come Dancing lovebirds between Georgia May Foote and boyfriend Giovanni Pernice – as he’s already given her a diamond ring!

And what’s more – she’s wearing it on her ENGAGEMENT finger…

The former Coronation Street star was spotted sporting the sparkling piece of jewellery as the Strictly tour kicked off in Birmingham this week.

But before you get all giddy with excitement over the thought of a Strictly wedding (although just imagine how immense that would be), it’s not what you think.

According to the couple, the ring us just a gift and they have no immediate plans to marry, with Georgia telling the Sunday Mirror: ‘It isn’t an engagement ring.’

Italian hunk Giovanni added: ‘It’s just a present.’

Oh, boo – we were getting so pumped at the thought of Bruce Forsyth being wheeled out to ‘do a Joey Tribiani’ and officiate the wedding. And Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman acting as bridesmaids. And the Strictly orchestra playing a jazzed-up version of Here Comes The Bride… We’ll stop now.

But things are still moving quickly for the couple, who have revealed they plan on moving in together.

‘I’m going to move to London because I’m just at that age now,’ Georgia said.

And, when asked if she’ll be seeking a pad with Giovanni, both say: ‘Yes’

Georgia – who split from boyfriend of seven months, former Corrie co-star Sean Ward, to be with her dance partner – said: ‘Giovanni makes me happy.

‘All that matters is my friends know I’m happy, my family know I’m happy.’


She also insisted that she hadn’t cheated on Sean with Giovanni, saying: ‘Nothing was going on between us during the show.’
