The Mail Online reports: “Giovanni set his sights on Emily from the get-go. He made a beeline for her and was very persistent.

“He held her hands and waist and during one intimate moment caressed her face, before the pair left the club to have a cigarette together.”

The source went on to claim that Giovanni, 31, was “protective” over Emily, 32, as they partied with his Strictly co-stars.
