Earlier in the year, there was love in the Strictly studios as Giovanni Pernice and Jowita Przystal became an item, but their romance proved to be short-lived as they split due to a "hectic work schedule".

However, Jowita has been sparking rumours that she has moved on from her co-star, looking incredibly cosy with Strictly's assisant choreographer, Arduino Bertoncello, who is part of the team choreographing the upcoming Strictly Professional Tour. The pair were photographed walking and smiling together, with Arduino having his arm wrapped around the current Strictly champion.

Jowita later shared a snap of Arduino chereographing the Strictly professional and added a heart emoji to it.

While neither have confirmed a potential romance, it appears they headed out on a date to Notting Hill last week with Arduino sharing snaps of their time together as they dined at a curbside cafe and browsed vinyl records in Notting Hill.

According to his Burn the Floor profile, Italian-born Arduino began dancing at the age of eight, winning his first Latin American Italian title when he was just 14. He would go on to become a finalist at many other major dance competitions, including the Blackpool Junior.

The dancer has since moved into the world of choreography working for Vanity Fair at the Venice Film Festival and creating many routines on the popular Italian talent show Amici di Maria De Filippi.

If the pair are dating, it wouldn't be uncommon as Jowita's ex Giovanni recently explained why dancers always end up falling for one another.

Appearing on Spencer Matthews' podcast, Big Fish, he said: "When you're in competition, it's either you're in a relationship with your partner, because you spend most of your time with your partner, literally 24/7, and you travel with your partner. Or you're just single and enjoy your time around when you can.

"It's impossible sometimes, but that's the reason why most of the dance couples are together, because it’s either this or nothing. And they stop dancing, and they break up straight away."

He went on to say that dancing puts "a lot of pressure" on his ability to have a "normal" relationship.
