Giovanni and Rose have now parted ways from their Strictly commitments having met back last summer. The EastEnders actress, 27, recently penned an emotional message, which read: "Six months ago, I didn't have a clue what I signed up for and to be honest I was terrified. Now, I know for sure that it was the best decision I have ever made, what a crazy ride and life-changing experience it has been.
