“Six months ago, I didn’t have a clue what I signed up for and to be honest I was terrified,” wrote the star.

“Now, I know for sure that it was the best decision I have ever made, what a crazy ride and life-changing experience it has been.”

“@giovannipernice, I am so grateful that you were part of my Strictly journey. Thank you for telling my story and showing everyone who I am. Our friendship is so special and lasting for sure,” she continued.

“Thank you to everyone who supported us, it has blown me away, you are the reason we got this far and made such an impact not just from dancing.

“Without you all, it would not have been possible.”
