Giovanni Pernice apologises for getting 'really close' to Strictly partner Ranvir Singh

Giovanni Pernice, 30, has cheekily apologised to his Strictly Come Dancing 2020 partner Ranvir Singh, 43, after getting “really close” to her during their Cha-cha-cha on the BBC show last weekend. The Italian professional dancer made the comment after host Zoe Ball brought up the duo’s intimate dance moves on Strictly spin-off show It Takes Two this evening.

After praising the Good Morning Britain presenter on her hip action during the routine, Zoe said: “The hips are honestly so impressive.

“And then you had to do that really close next to him as well. My goodness me!”

While Ranvir giggled, Giovanni exclaimed: “I’m sorry about that, I’m sorry darling!”

Zoe then mischievously quipped: “He’s not sorry really!”

Going along with the joke, Ranvir turned to Giovanni and sarcastically said: “It’s okay.

“It was a tragedy, I really worked my way through it, it’s fine.”

It comes after Ranvir broke her silence on rumours about her chemistry with Giovanni following her split from her ex-husband Ranjeet Singh Dehal.

The journalist admitted it would be “a b****y miracle” if she and the Italian dancer were struck by the BBC show’s so-called “curse”.


“It’s very optimistic and complimentary that anyone would think I would be struck by the curse.”

Although she has ruled out a romance between them, Ranvir gushed over Giovanni’s talents as a dancer.

The star told OK! Magazine: “It doesn’t matter whether I’m in the room or not, he’s sizzling away! The dances are all about being romantic and, of course, we have to make them convincing.”

Ranvir explained that Strictly’s head judge Shirley Ballas previously pointed out how close dancers have to be to their partners during ballroom routines.

She added: “Shirley Ballas pointed out that when you’re doing ballroom, you have to basically attach your ribcage to your partner while dancing.

“That’s very intimate, isn’t it? It can feel a bit awkward getting that close to someone. Then your face is right in their face, too. 

“Oh my goodness, it’s taken a bit of getting used to because you can’t avoid it.”

Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two continues tomorrow at 6.30pm on BBC Two.
