Strictly tour: Giovanni Pernice shares ‘unfortunate’ news about Rose Ayling-Ellis as she’s ‘replaced’

He is SUCH a joker!

The Strictly tour continued last night but, ahead of the performance, Giovanni Pernice shared some “unfortunate” news about partner Rose Ayling-Ellis.

Of course, you’d have had to have been living under a rock to not know the pair lifted the Glitterball Trophy at the end of last year.

And they’ve since been busy touring the UK, performing in front of their fans.

However, ahead of the show last night (January 28), joker Giovanni took to Instagram to share his “unfortunate” news.

Joker Gio then revealed who he would be dancing with.

He quipped: “It’s actually one of the Abba members.”

The camera then panned out to reveal Rose standing in the background wearing a gold sequinned jumpsuit.

“Wow,” Gio said as Rose approached the camera, singing and dancing.

“Rose is the Dancing Queen, young and sweet only 17,” she sang.

Keeping a straight face, Giovanni asked: “Where’s Rose? Where’s Rose?”
