Georgia and Giovanni met when they were paired together for 'Strictly Come Dancing' 2015.
The romantic magic of ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ has struck again, with recent contestant Georgia May Foote announcing that she’s moving in with her professional dance partner Giovanni Pernice.
The new couple, whose obvious chemistry the nation witnessed on last year’s ‘Strictly…’, announced they were dating last month, having finished as runners-up in the thirteenth series. Now, the former ‘Coronation Street’ actress has said she’s relocating from Manchester to London to live with Giovanni.

Georgia, 24, told The Mirror as they walked home together from ‘Strictly’ 2016 tour rehearsals in Birmingham on Thursday: “I’m going to move to London because I’m just at that age now.” They were both asked whether they’ll be looking for a house together, and they replied “Yes”.
In another interview with Hello! magazine, Georgia admitted that she instantly felt a connection with Giovanni. “We clicked from the word go. I was shy and nervous at first but we definitely got on really well and that gave me confidence to come out of myself.”
She was said to have split up with her former boyfriend, 27 year old Sean Ward, whom she’d been dating for eight months shortly after starting training for ‘Strictly’.
The new couple will be spending a lot of time together on the road in the coming months as the 2016 ‘Strictly’ tour gets under way, with Georgia to be seen alongside current champion Jay McGuinness, Helen George, Ainsley Harriott, Anita Rani and contestants from previous years Frankie Bridge and Jake Wood.
“We had such an amazing experience on ‘Strictly’ it’s nice to be able to go on tour together now and experience this together now,” Georgia continued. “It’s the full journey - it’s been amazing.”
