Writing in his native Italian, Giovanni wished a "buon San Valentino" to his girlfriend. The 27-year-old was seen planting a kiss on Jessica's cheek, while she took the selfie. The pair were first romantically linked back in November, when they were spotted enjoying a theatre date in the West End. Giovanni and 32-year-old Jessica – Mark Wright's older sister – watched a performance of Dreamgirls. The Strictly pro has previously brushed off rumours of a romance with a string of women, including his 59-year-old Strictly co-star Debbie McGee, and fellow choreographer Luba Mushtuk.

They met through her brother Mark's Strictly connections from when he was on the show and they're getting to know each other." Mark was a celebrity contestant on the BBC One series in 2014, finishing in fourth place. Giovanni has previously dated his Strictly Come Dancing partner Georgia May Foote, while Jessica was in a relationship with former TOWIE co-star Ricky Rayment.
