Georgia May Foote has spoken out about her romance with Giovanni Pernice from Strictly Come Dancing.

The couple were partners on last year's show and made the final together where they finished as runners up.

There was talk during the series that they had grown close although Georgia says they didn't actually get together until filming finished bak before Christmas.

"Gio is my best friend," the former Coronation Street actress said this week.

She gushed: "He's the best thing that has ever happened to me. I'm in a very good place now. I've got good people around me."

Georgia, who's just come back from the Strictly tour with Gio, told the Daily Mirror newspaper this week about their relationship: "It's something that just happened, I didn't get a chance to look at him that way while I was on the show.

"It was a friendship that blossomed."

The pair have since moved to London together with Gio set to return to Strictly Come Dancing for a second series this year while Georgia looks for more TV and film roles.

As well as living together, they've also met one another's parents at both ends of Europe.

"I went to Sicily for a little while and I've met his parents," Georgia revealed. "He's met my parents too. I call him Peach and he calls me Amore."

We can't help but love them together!
