It looks as though Corrie star Georgia May Foote may just have scored the best dance partner on this year's Strictly Come Dancing - and here's why...

There are so many things that we imagine make the Strictly Come Dancing experience extra-special for the show’s celebrity contestants. The rush of walking down those famous stairs to take to the floor. A standing ovation from the audience. Being told ‘You’re my favourite by head judge Len Goodman.

But, above all, having a professional dance partner that makes you laugh and brings out the best in you is surely the most important thing when it comes to Strictly success. And it looks as though Georgia May Foote has struck dance partner gold!

The Coronation Street actress is paired with Sicily-born dancer , and the Italian stallion is proving to be the BEST partner.

The evidence? This video of Giovanni serenading Georgia with a rousing rendition of Whitney Houston’s I Have Nothing to get the 24-year-old star ready for rehearsals.

What better way to get you in the mood for a day of dancing? We told you he was pretty great!

Giovanni’s winning ways don’t stop there either. Way back when rehearsals started in early September, the 25-year-old hunk invested in matching team t-shirts for him and Georgia, her’s emblazoned with ‘Born To Win’ and his with ‘Team GG’, the nickname they’ve adopted for themselves. Cute!

It’s a good job that Georgia has ended up with such a motivating dance partner, after appearing to struggle with the gruelling rehearsal routine early on in her Strictly journey.

Giovanni took to Twitter to post a photo of his partner looking beyond exhausted just hours after training begun, writing ‘She is already tired’ followed by a couple of amusing angry face emojis. Yikes!

Still, things seem to have gotten easier for Georgia after she sailed through week two with an oh-so elegant waltz, finishing in the top half of the leaderboard.

Keep up the good work, Team GG!
