Giovanni insists he didn’t, but Jamie had the last laugh.

Over on Giovanni’s socials the dancer was heard giggling as Jamie said: “You told me to take a photo of you.”

“No I didn’t actually,” Giovanni laughed.

“Yeah you did so I did, there’s a photo,” he said.

“No I didn’t,” a giggling Giovanni insisted.

“Do you want me to airdrop it to you?” Jamie joked.

“No you didn’t,” Giovanni laughed before the video ended.

When did Jamie appear on Strictly Come Dancing?

Jamie first appeared on the show in 2019.

However, he didn’t get very far, having to pull out before the live shows due to an injury.

For the first time ever, he was allowed to return to the show in 2020.

He made it to the final with partner Karen Hauer, finishing as runner up.

As fans of the BBC dance show will know, Giovanni went one better than his pal this year.

He lifted the show’s coveted Glitter Ball trophy after being crowed winner of the show alongside his celebrity partner, EastEnders actress Rose Ayling-Ellis.
