Giovanni and Maura have sparked split rumours

Meanwhile, during a recent chat with HELLO!, Giovanni had nothing but lovely things to say about his girlfriend Maura. "Maura is beautiful, funny, and she's a very loyal person," he gushed. "We get along very well, we're just enjoying getting to know each other."

Of the Strictly 'curse,' Giovanni said: "Maura is absolutely fine, in the sense that it's not a curse, I'm going to dance with my celeb, and she will be supporting me all the way.

"Realistically, if you're happy in your relationship there is no reason for the curse. If you're happy with your wife or with your husband, you wouldn't go on Strictly to cheat."
