Georgia was said to have had stern words with Laura over her Strictly experience

Laura Whitmore has hit back after reports suggesting she’d come to blows with Georgia May Foote over her relationship with Giovanni Pernice.

Georgia – who split from Giovanni in August after dating since the start of the year – was said to have become increasingly upset by photos of Laura and Gio together and had apparently had words with Laura about her sharing these pictures on social media.

‘Georgia confronted Laura over the pictures of her and Giovanni,’ an insider said.

‘She knew they would get close because of the hours they’re putting in during training but Georgia just wanted Laura to stop plastering it across social media because she’s still upset about the split.’

This didn’t go down well with 31-year-old Laura, it’s claimed, who hit back at Georgia with a feisty response.

‘Laura was furious and didn’t hold back, telling her: “You’re ruining my Strictly experience,”’ the source tells The Sun. ’Georgia thinks Laura’s being a real diva and is throwing their friendship away.

‘All Georgia wanted was for her to be a bit more low key but Laura’s having none of it.’

Now Laura has laughed off the speculation by sharing a giggle about it with Georgia, 25, on Twitter.

‘So when did we have this explosive row @georgiafoote,’ the Irish presenter joked on Friday morning.

‘Hope your show is going well lovely, been ages! xx’

Georgia – who’s currently starring in a touring production of Breakfast At Tiffany’s – has since responded with some laughing face emojis and made it clear that there are no hard feelings between her and Laura.

There’s been no word from Gio, 25, in all of this.

All seemed fine between the ladies before Strictly Come Dancing kicked off and they enjoyed a night out in London together with showbiz mates Caroline Flack and Ashley Roberts last month.

Georgia went on to deny talk of her being worried about Laura’s partnership with her now ex-boyfriend Giovanni, having posted on Twitter earlier in September: ‘Good luck to all the @bbcstrictly 2016 cast and crew on their launch show tonight! Sending all my love! Im sure its going to be incredible

‘And i would just like to wish @thewhitmore and @pernicegiovann1 good luck. Please do not believe the crap you read! Shes a beautiful person’
