Georgia May Foote dislocated her Strictly Come Dancing partner 5 times

Georgia May Foote has dislocated her 'Strictly Come Dancing' partner Giovanni Pernice's shoulder five times.

The 24-year-old actress has admitted her professional dance partner on the BBC One show has sustained a number of injuries during their rehearsals, and he is constantly paranoid she is going to accidentally break his nose.

She explained: "When we were practising the salsa, I managed to dislocate Giovanni's shoulder five times. It even happened in dress rehearsals. Because of the moves it pops out, so he has to pop it back in again. I think it can get pretty painful. I also keep catching my feet with my stilettos, so they're pretty cut up and I tend to dance with my elbows up so Giovanni's scared I'm going to break his nose.

"His professional partner broke his nose a few years ago so he's always like, 'Watch my nose.' "

The former 'Coronation Street' star has revealed her partner is a very "strict" taskmaster and she often has to ask him to go easy on her.

She told OK! magazine: "He's really strict. He's just come out of competing so he's still in this really competitive mindset.

"I sometimes have to remind him I'm not a professional.

"But if there's something he knows I can't do, then he won't push me."
