Giovanni and Rose have become the best of friends since meeting last summer

Giovanni has previously spoken out about the impact that meeting Rose has had on him. During last year's Strictly final, the Italian dancer revealed that Rose would be a "best friend for life".

"I just have to say it's been a dream to be able to dance with you. It's been a dream sharing this journey with you," he told her.

"It's my privilege to share the journey with you. I've definitely met a friend, a best friend for life."

Following their win, Rose told Giovanni: "I just want to say you are so amazing. You pushed me to believe in myself more than I believe in myself. You are an incredible teacher, but not just that you are a wonderful friend.

"We've gone through a lot, and I just want you to know no matter what happens, no matter how busy we get, I want you to know you've always got a piece of my heart. You really do."
