Georgia May Foote believes she and Giovanni Pernice hit it off straight away and their connection has blossomed ever since
Georgia May Foote believes she clicked with her 'Strictly Come Dancing' partner Giovanni Pernice "from the word go."
The former 'Coronation Street' actress is rumoured to be dating the handsome dancer after they were paired together for the recent series of the BBC One show but she has admitted there was an instant connection from the beginning.
She told HELLO! magazine: "We clicked from the word go. I was shy and nervous at first but we definitely got on really well and that gave me confidence to come out of myself."
The chemistry between the 24-year-old star and the talented performer reportedly led to her splitting from her boyfriend Sean Ward after their close bond caused heated rows.
A source said recently: "Georgia would regularly be in floods of tears backstage. Giovanni was trying to be a good friend."
Rumours Georgia had split from Sean first began to swirl the weekend after the show wrapped up in December when she and Giovanni were spotted sharing a passionate smooch during a romantic trip to Disneyland in Paris.
An onlooker said at the time: "I couldn't believe it when I saw them together. They looked like a very happy couple. They were laughing and joking and holding hands.
"It seems very strange she would come here with Giovanni after Sean said they were still together and that he wasn't worried. I feel sorry for him."
