She swapped Gio out for a new partner…

Strictly champion Giovanni Pernice sent a sweet message to his celebrity partner Rose Ayling-Ellis as she showed off her dance moves on the beach.

The pair lifted the Glitter Ball trophy before Christmas, and it’s clear dancing isn’t out of Rose’s system just yet.

And, with Giovanni in Italy with his family, Rose roped in another partner – and it seems Giovanni approved.
