Strictly Come Dancing's Giovanni Pernice responds to rumours he's dating Alexandra Burke

"I'm a massive fan of Alexandra."

Strictly Come Dancing's Giovanni Pernice has addressed rumours he's dating Alexandra Burke.

Many people have been speculating over whether the pair were actually in a relationship, following a couple of friendly Instagram posts where they wrote that they missed each other.

But speaking to OK! Online, Giovanni clarified they were just great friends.

"Me and Alexandra are super friends for like four years," he said. "She did Strictly and we've been friends since then. We also have the same agent.

"That's it. We are really, really good friends.

"I'm a massive fan of Alexandra, I am beyond a fan of her voice, but there is nothing there."

Alexandra, partnered with Gorka Marquez, reached the final in the 2017 series. During that year, Giovanni was paired with Debbie McGee.

In the most recent series, Giovanni and celebrity partner Ranvir Singh narrowly missed out on a place in the final.

"You really believed more in yourself. You really feel like a different person, and this as a teacher is everything I can ask for," Giovanni told Ranvir following their elimination.

"Yes, this show is a dance competition but it's not all about that. It's all about the way you grow. It's much more about that. That's the reason why I think we should deserve, maybe, a place in the final."

Strictly Come Dancing airs on BBC One. It's due to return later in 2021.
