Ranvir Singh gives Strictly star Giovanni Pernice’s new romance her seal of approval

He's coupled up with Love Island's Maura Higgins

Strictly Come Dancing hunk Giovanni Pernice has got a new girlfriend and it appears his 2020 dance partner Ranvir Singh couldn’t be happier.

Ranvir and Giovanni set tongues wagging towards the end of last year when they were partnered on the BBC dance show.

Their chemistry was electrifying and the pair developed a friendship away from the cameras.

And, while they didn’t make the final, their friendship did go the distance, with Ranvir giving Gio’s new romance the thumbs up.
