Having been runners-up on 'Strictly Come Dancing' 2015, Georgia and Giovanni fell in love rapidly and have moved in together.

25 year old Georgia, formerly an actress on ‘Coronation Street’ until last year, said that the 27 year old Italian dancer was there to support her during the disintegration of her relationship with her ex-boyfriend, fellow actor Sean Ward.

Twitter users reacted with disbelief to the public vote for the dance-off, which placed favourites Helen and Georgia against each other, meaning one had to go home.
‘Strictly Come Dancing’ fans took to social media last night to express their dismay at the shock result of the public vote this weekend, which pitted contestants Helen George and Georgia May Foote together in the dance-off despite many regarding them as the most talented contenders in the competition.
It meant that ‘Call the Midwife’ actress Helen George exited the competition on Sunday night (December 7th), despite earning the highest accumulative score from the judges of the series so far the previous evening. She and her professional partner Aljaz Škorjanec danced a paso doble to music from 'Les Miserables', but were edged out by Georgia and her partner Giovanni Pernice’s foxtrot to 'Beauty and the Beast'.
