'Strictly Come Dancing' pro dancer Graziano Di Prima cannot go home to Italy for Christmas with his family following the latest coronavirus pandemic restrictions
'Strictly Come Dancing' pro Graziano Di Prima is unable to make it home to his family for Christmas following the latest coronavirus pandemic restrictions.
The 26-year-old star – who is from Italy – has been in the UK taking part in the latest series of the Latin and ballroom show, but after several countries, including Italy, banned UK flights he won't be able to make it home over the festive period.
He wrote: "There's something that you CANNOT Buy... FAMILY... I tried everything possible to make my way home.. but it's not possible... (sic)"
Graziano later shared a group picture of the 'Strictly' pros and admitted it had been an "amazing season".
He wrote: "Strictly Come Dancing BUBBLE 2020!!
What an amazing season has been especially in this difficult time!!
#grateful to be part of it!! (sic)"
While Graziano took part in the latest series, he, along with fellow pros Nadiya Bychkova, Neil Jones, and Nancy Xu, was not given a celebrity partner.
This year's 'Strictly' made history as pro Katya Jones danced with boxer Nicola Adams in the first same-sex pairing.
It came after Graziano and fellow pro Johannes Radebe performed a same-sex dance together last year, which prompted 200 complaints.
Afterwards, Graziano hit back, saying: "Why should I care about 200 people? Are you kidding me? Those 200 people, you will see that in the future they will change their minds.
"It is such a silly thing because dancing is for everyone."
