Strictly hunk says there’s ‘no way’ he’d date dance partner Ranvir Singh

Strictly Come Dancing star Giovanni Pernice has finally addressed the speculation surrounding his romance with Good Morning Britain co-anchor, Ranvir Singh.

Giovanni, 30, was partnered with 43-year-old Ranvir on last years Strictly, with the pair often facing claims that their friendship was blossoming into a romance.

However, the Italian born dancer has now had the final say, cementing that the couple are just "very, very good friends".

Pernice who burst onto screens back in 2015 may be a Latin dancer but he claims the chemistry viewers and judges see between the pros and their celebrity partners is merely just "acting".

Speaking to Entertainment Daily, Giovanni admitted that he and Ranvir are in constant communication with the pair hoping to dance again together once the lockdown restrictions have eased.

Speaking of their alleged romance, he said: "No, no, no, no, no. I'm single; absolutely there's no way – we are very good friends."

Despite denying any blossoming romance while they appeared on the hit Saturday night dance competition, the pair went on to deliver a string of steamy performances, something that Giovanni believes was a correct move.

He went on to add: "If people at home or the judges think you have a great connection then it means my job, what I'm doing, is perfect. We deliver exactly what the dances require. Remember, we are actors."

While they may have won the judges and viewers at home over, Ranvir and Giovanni failed to secure a spot in the top four, eventually being given the boot in week eight.

Ranvir has previously spoken of their intimate connection, revealing on Good Morning Britain that they had a "special thing".

After co-star Susanna Reid asked whether she missed Giovanni, Ranvir replied: "Well do you know I am going to see him today as we are doing a group dance on Saturday!

"We will stay friends as we have experienced something quite deep and intense. It is a special thing. I adore him' he is a very special soul."

Piers Morgan went on to add fuel to the fire before cheekily saying: "People can read into that what they will," after Ranvir's remarks.

Ranvir went on to reveal that she didn't think she would get so far in the competition if it hadn't been for Giovanni, confessing: "He is so driven – he has tattoos like 'born to win' – and if you are in the same room as him you are duty-bound to be as driven as him."
