Love is in the air for the latest Strictly Come Dancing competitors with pro dancer Giovanni Pernice appearing to confirm his relationship with celebrity contestant Ashley Roberts.

He spoke about it, quite shyly, in a television interview this morning.

Both were runners-up in this year's competition but they weren't paired up with each other.

Instead Giovanni danced with Faye Tozer and Ashley danced with Pasha Kovalev.

The news comes soon after Joe Sugg and Dianne Buswell confirmed their romance on social media.
