Georgia May Foote is reportedly worried about who her Strictly ex Giovanni Pernice will be partnered with this series.

Georgia danced with pro performer Giovanni in his first year on Strictly in 2015 and following the show - and Georgia's break up from her previous boyfriend - the pair became a couple.

They were living together as Giovanni prepared for a brand new series of Strictly with a new celebrity pairing.

"Of course I'll get jealous," Georgia admitted to OK! magazine just last month. "Whoever Giovanni gets is a very lucky girl. He’s a great teacher."

She added: "I’m excited for whoever he gets and, yeah, he’s a great teacher, so I’m happy for him. I think it’s fine."

However last weekend saw Georgia announce they were no longer seeing one another, tweeting: "It is with great sadness we have decided to split up. There is nobody else involved. Although it was not an easy decision to make, sometimes you realise that it is better to be friends and this is one of those times."

Georgia went on: "We both have very busy work schedules for the rest of the year so we are both going to focus on our upcoming work projects and we wish each other well for the future."

Now it's been reported that Georgia feels that the BBC is trying to 'set up' Giovanni after pairing him up with Laura Whitmore on this year's line up.

And it's even worse for Georgia because she and Laura are close friends.

A source told The Sun newspaper: “Georgia knows just how intimately the couples have to dance and is terrified that Giovanni might hook up with Laura.

“She is devastated that they are no longer together and struggling with the thought of Gio getting up close and personal with a friend of hers.”

Strictly Come Dancing 2016's launch show airs tonight at 6:50PM on BBC One.
