Giovanni Pernice, 31, took to Instagram and shared a cheeky video online today. The Strictly Come Dancing champion reacted to rumours that his dance partner Rose Ayling-Ellis, 27, had pulled out of the arena tour which is set to kick off on Thursday.
The Italian-born dancer took to the picture-sharing site and cleared up the claims in a candid clip.
In view of his 792,000 followers, Giovanni could be seen sitting on a train as he spoke into his camera phone.
He began: “Good morning lovely people. Just a quick message to clarify all the rumours that are going around at the moment.
“Yes, it’s true. Rose is not doing the tour at all anymore.”
“So I will be dancing on my own, all day, every day.”
The Strictly winner suddenly went quiet as Rose suddenly appeared in the clip.
She interjected: “I’m not going anywhere.”
The EastEnders star gave a quizzical look at her dance partner following his cheeky prank.
“You’re not going anywhere?” he questioned, “You are coming on tour with me?”
Giovanni clarified: “Oh, she is doing the tour.”
Rose asked: “Are you happy?”
To which the pro dancer replied: “Very. Thank you.”
