Former Strictly Come Dancing contestant Debbie McGee, 60, spilled the details on The Telegraph’s Talking Strictly podcast earlier this week.
The radio host shared her thoughts on the latest Strictly story where it has been reported professional dancer Giovanni, 28, has been having secret dates with celebrity dancer Ashley Roberts, 37.
Debbie said: “There were loads of pictures of Giovanni and I, kissing goodbye after rehearsals or something. There was nothing in it but they’ll say look, look, look.
“Or your just getting up out of a chair and your heads are touching, look they’re having a relationship.
There was nothing in it
“It’s a whole load of nonsense. We bumped heads after that and knocked ourselves out.”
Debbie and Giovanni struck up a very special bond whilst competing on the show last year which sparked rumours of romance which both parties denied.
The pair look like they have remained friends since being on the show as the Italian hunk gushed over Debbie on Twitter where he said he “loves” her “so much.”
The professional dancer wished Debbie a Happy Birthday as she turned 60 on Halloween.
Taking to Twitter he said: “Happy bday to my amazing @thedebbiemcgee!!
“Love ya soooooo much and I miss u!! Have the best day and I will see you very soon!”
