STRICTLY COME DANCING 2018 star Giovanni Pernice has taken to social media to defend himself after he came face to face with his ex-girlfriend, Jessica Wright, at the Pride of Britain Awards 2018 last which seemingly took an awkward turn.
The Strictly Come Dancing star Giovanni, 28, and the former Only Way Is Essex’s Jess, 33, reportedly had a heated row at the award ceremony following their split in April.
In a video obtained by The Mirror, the former couple were filmed exchanging words which erupted into a furious row.
According to the publication, Jess is overheard telling Giovanni: “You’re full of s**t.”
Giovanni who previously dated his Strictly partner Georgia May Foote liked a tweet which stated the professional dancer “doesn’t go through women”.
The tweet read: “Name me one woman other than Jess or Georgia he's officially been with. He doesn't go through women. He actually seems like a genuine guy."
Jessica and Giovanni dated for six months but broke up earlier this year.
The pair’s confrontation came just days after it was reported Giovanni and Strictly co-star Ashley Roberts have been on a string of dates together.
A source told The Sun, Ashley and Giovanni have enjoyed many dates out together but it is still “very early days”.
The source told the publication: “The spark between Ashley and Giovanni has become quite widely noticed among the crew – they just seem to really hit it off.
“He is training up north at the moment while she is based down here so they only get to see each other towards the end of the week. But they’ve been making the most of it.”
