Strictly Come Dancing pro Giovanni Pernice hits out at ex

Jess Wright was caught on camera shouting at him

Strictly Come Dancing pro Giovanni Pernice has broken his silence over the much-publicised bust-up with ex, Jess Wright.

The Italian hunk seemingly argued with the former TOWIE star at last week’s Pride Of Britain Awards.

Jess was caught on camera telling Giovanni that he was “full of [bleep]”.

It’s believed she also said: “I got in a cab and I never saw you again for six months, you’re talking [bleep].

“You used me… Publicity, fame. No-one who loves someone drops them…

“You’re jealous of everything. We were together six months, you never cared about me.

“I want to know why – you left me!”

Jess made no reference to the altercation, simply posting a message on social media about what a wonderful night she’d had at the event the following day.

He has now defended himself on Twitter, liking a message of support from a fan who felt his reputation had been unjustly tarnished by the incident.

The supporter commented: “Name me one woman other than Jess or Georgia he’s officially been with. He doesn’t go through women. He actually seems like a genuine guy.”

Jess and Giovanni split in April, with reports suggesting that he couldn’t deal with the amount of press attention she garners.

They were first romantically linked last December after they were spotted on a night out watching West End musical Dream Girls.

It’s understood the charity event last week was the first time the exes had seen each other since their split.

Giovanni is partnered with Faye Tozer on this year’s Strictly and is rumoured to be dating another contestant, Ashley Roberts.
