Georgia May Foote has been using her job as an actress to distract herself from her ex-boyfriend Giovanni Pernice
Georgia May Foote has thrown herself into work since she split from Giovanni Pernice.
The former 'Coronation Street' actress split from the 26-year-old Italian dancer in August after getting together on BBC's 'Strictly Come Dancing' and has said she doesn't pay attention to any speculation about their relationship because she is so "busy" with work.
Georgia, 25, told Belfast Live: "I'm quite a private person so I just get on with life, I've always said that my job is the most important thing in my life and my family. My family are happy and healthy and I'm working on a great show.
"I've literally thrown myself into it completely. It's been such a great experience and I'm lucky that I've got it right now, I think, to do - to keep me busy. I just kind of get on with life, I don't really listen [to what's being said]."
Georgia's comments come days after it was reported that she has fallen out with Giovanni's new celebrity dance partner, Laura Whitmore.
The brunette beauty is said to be unhappy about his blossoming friendship with her pal Laura, 31.
According to The Sun, Georgia contacted Laura to discuss her concerns but it didn't end well.
At the time, a source said: "Georgia confronted Laura over the pictures of her and Giovanni. She knew they would get close because of the hours they're putting in during training but Georgia just wanted Laura to stop plastering it across social media because she's still upset about the split.
"Laura was furious and didn't hold back, telling her: 'You're ruining my 'Strictly' experience.
"Georgia thinks Laura's being a real diva and is throwing their friendship away. All Georgia wanted was for her to be a bit more low-key but Laura's having none of it."
And Georgia must've been even more upset when former 'Strictly' dancer Gleb Savchenco said Giovanni and Laura are bound to get together.
He said: "I bet you £100 Giovanni will get with Laura this year."
However, Laura has always insisted there is nothing romantic going on between her and Giovanni and there never will be.
