Just goes to show you have to be careful what you believe.

When the latest series of Strictly kicked off in September, the tabs wrote excitedly about the steamy hot bond shared between Northern Irish lovely Laura Whitmore and handsome dance floor demon Giovanni Pernice.

In fact, the press feverishly reported that the relationship was so close and so intense that Laura ended up falling out with her mate Georgia May Foote, who had been dating the Italian stallion for a time since meeting on the series a year before.

But now it has emerged that there was no budding romance between Laura and Giovanni whatsoever. In fact, it would appear that they actually both hated each other.

And having been booted off the show, it’s understood that relations between the former dance partners has got even worse!

“The atmosphere between Laura and Gio was never that great, but it’s now turned toxic,” a source told The Sun

“They clashed during rehearsals as Laura got increasingly agitated with Gio’s tone and general rudeness. But they pulled it together for the live shows but behind the scenes it was a different story.

“There’s certainly no love lost between them and it’s doubtful they’ll remain in contact when the series is wrapped up later this month.”

Former Corrie star Georgia got together with Giovanni on Strictly last year and swiftly moved in together in London and got engaged. But shortly before the start of this series, the pair went their separate ways.

So folks, just goes to show, don’t believe EVERYTHING you read out there. Unless of course, it’s on Entertainment Daily.
