Strictly's Giovanni Pernice confirms new romanceBBC

Strictly Come Dancing star Giovanni Pernice has confirmed his new romance with model Molly Brown.

The professional dancer's new girlfriend posted a photo of the two looking cosy together on her Instagram profile, with the caption "Amore Mio", meaning "my love" in Italian, making reference to Pernice's heritage.

It seems the feeling is mutual for the Strictly star, who commented the same sentiments on the post. He also shared the post on his Instagram Stories, officially confirming the relationship.

Molly is a professional model, represented by Scout Models Agency who has appeared in campaigns for fake tan brand Forever Sundays and fashion rental brand What’s Mine Is Yours.

It's unclear how long the two have been together, though sources claim Brown and Pernice began dating in early February.

Last March, it was reported that Pernice had split from his Strictly co-star Jowita Przystal after finding love behind-the-scenes, though neither party publicly confirmed the relationship.

Pernice previously dated Love Island's Maura Higgins and former-TOWIE star Jess Wright.

The dancer has also been in a relationship with Pussycat Dolls singer Ashley Roberts and ex-Coronation Street actress Georgia May Foote, who both appeared as contestants on the BBC ballroom show. Pernice was professionally partnered with Foote back in 2015 and the two dated for a year after.

Pernice opened up about his love life with co-star Anton Du Beke in an episode of their ITV travel series Anton and Giovanni: Adventures in Sicily back in March 2023.

He joked that his mum always takes a keen interest in his romances and often tells him she wants grandchildren "before I pass away".

"Of course I want to have a family one day you know, I just have to find the right person first," he added.

Strictly Come Dancing will return later this year on BBC One, while spin-off Strictly: It Takes Two airs on weeknights on BBC Two. Both shows are available to stream on BBC iPlayer.
