Fresh from the news that Shirley Ballas is replacing Len Goodman on the Strictly judging panel and pro dancer Natalie Lowe is leaving the show after eight years, it looks like there could be another shock Strictly shake up.

26-year-old Italian pro dancer Giovanni Pernice has revealed that he still hasn’t had a call from show bosses! We’re really hoping that the phone starts ringing soon, as we can’t get enough of Giovanni’s sharp moves on the dance floor!

We will miss you legend !!! @bbcstrictly

Still it seems that Giovanni is making a mark in his own right, after announcing that he will be doing his first UK tour titled Dance is Life or ‘il ballo è vita’ in Italian.


“It’s very special for me and such a privilege and a challenge as well because it’s the first time, after just two years on Strictly, I am doing my own tour.

“It’s different from the Live Tour because Live Tour is also about the celebrity but as a professional dancer this is about me and my cast. I am really excited but at the same time petrified.”

The promo pic alone is enough to get us all hot and bothered! Sadly it seems that Giovanni may have broken hearts before he’s even had the chance to Tango, as he’s rumoured to be getting up close to Corrrie star Katie McGlynn!
