The stars of Strictly Come Dancing may lead a life of glitz and glamour as they Waltz into the ballroom each week, but do their homes behind the scenes live up to their glittering lives in the spotlight?

Many of the Strictly stars, like Gorka Marquez and Tess Daly, have decked out their abodes with lavish home gyms. Dianne Buswell has a stunning cottage core kitchen to whip up her imaginative baked goods, while Kai Widdrington's immaculate London flat has dance studio space overlooking the city skyline.

Since starting his relationship with fellow Strictly professional Nadiya Bychkova, the doting couple have shared their plans to purchase a property together. 

Before their romance blossomed, however, Kai shared a lavish bachelor pad in London with Giovanni Pernice. The ballroom champion loved sharing videos from their makeshift kitchen-come-dance studio overlooking the glittering London skyline during lockdown.

Giovanni Pernice rarely shares photos of his bachelor pad on social media, but from the few photos we have seen, he has opted for muted monochrome interiors, including white walls, wooden flooring, and a grey sofa.
