“Dancing with a man would challenge me more than anybody because you have to make the choreography suitable for both of us.

Jane asked: “Do you have a particular dream partner in mind?”

Giovanni replied “the Queen”, but Jane told him she meant his dream male partner.

Giovanni said: “I did an interview saying I would dance with Piers Morgan.”

Piers to pair up with Giovanni?

“This is what he said… ‘I’m ready, I’ve already done a same-sex sizzle. I did the Paso Doble on the dance floor with Bruno [Tonioli] at my 50th.’

“‘He said I had magnificent moves and I think he called me a stylist stallion too.'”

Jane said: “There you go Giovanni, you’ve got your partner.”

Giovanni replied: “I think it would be interesting to see Piers because he’s a very strong character and I’m a massive fan of his career.
