‘Happy Valentines to @pernicegiovanniofficial,’ Georgia, 25, captioned a photo of Gio.

‘always there for me through everything. My best mate and the kindest person i know. Thank you Gio x’

Awww, you’re making us well up, Georgia!

Fans of the couple were touched by the former Coronation Street star’s thoughtful post.

‘Awww! So sweet. Happy Valentines to you both,’ one commented.

Another added: ‘Congratulations @georgiamay112 and @pernicegiovanniofficial you deserve every happiness!’

Giovanni, 25, hasn’t publicly responded to his girl’s message yet but it’s clear that he’s smitten with her.

When Georgia celebrated her birthday last week the dancer shared an intimate picture of them kissing and wrote: ‘Happy birthday Amore !!!’

The duo became close when they were paired together on Strictly last year but were just friends during their time on the show as Georgia was dating actor Sean Ward, who she split from shortly after the Strictly final in December.

Georgia and Gio – or team GG as they were known on Strictly – have been inseparable ever since going public with their love and have enjoyed performing together on the Strictly tour over the past few weeks.

In fact they spent their Valentine’s day evening last night dancing at the last show of the run in London – what a fitting way to celebrate!

Now that the touring is over it looks like things could get even more serious for Georgia and her fella.

The actress recently revealed that she plans to move to London – and hopes to find a place with Giovanni. Exciting times ahead!

We know Christmas is long behind us, but here’s that excuse to look at Giovanni’s body we know you’ve been looking for…
