Georgia May Foote gushes about Giovanni romance
Georgia May Foote's boyfriend Giovanni Pernice is "the best thing that ever happened" to her.
The 25-year-old actress was dating her Coronation Street co-star Sean Ward when she entered Strictly Come Dancing last year (15), but the pair split during her time on the show. Shortly after competing on the BBC talent show, Georgia's relationship with her professional dance partner Giovanni turned romantic.
While there are many rumours about a relationship curse surrounding couples on Strictly, Georgia insists things couldn't be going any better for her and Giovanni.
"Gio is my best friend and he helped me through a lot," she told the Daily Mirror newspaper. “He’s the best thing that has ever happened to me. I’m in a very good place now. I’ve got good people around me."
The pair is living together, as their romance continues to develop at breakneck speed. Georgia admits she and Giovanni have already met each other's parents, and even have cute nicknames for one another.
"I went to Sicily for a little while and I’ve met his parents. I’ve been in contact with them a lot and they are lovely. He’s met my parents too. I call him Peach, and he calls me Amore," she smiled.
"I learnt a lot of Italian on Strictly. I know all the basics. But I’m not paying for lessons, he can teach me for free."
Now they are loved up in their own abode, Georgia insists they couldn't be further from the glamour on Strictly. Instead of nights on the town, they prefer cuddling up together in front of the television.
"I love cooking for him," she said. "He does wash pots and help out. I like being housewifey, I always have really. We like quiet nights in.
“We don’t do a lot of dancing any more, I dance on my own when I’m mopping the floor.”
