Strictly stars Anton Du Beke and Giovanni Pernice head to Italy for BBC travel seriesAnton & Giovanni’s Adventures in Sicily start date
Strictly Come Dancing’s Anton Du Beke and Giovanni Pernice will head to Italy for a brand new BBC travel series.
The pair are leaving the ballroom behind and packing their passports as they head to the sun kissed island of Sicily.
In Anton and Giovanni: Adventures in Sicily, Giovanni will introduce his beloved home of Sicily to his friend and fellow dancer Anton.
The pair will also be joined by Giovanni’s former Strictly Come Dancing celebrity partner, actress Rose Ayling-Ellis.
The series will air on BBC One and iPlayer from Tuesday, 21 March at 9PM. The series has three episodes.
The BBC share: “Giovanni will be Anton’s guide as the pair discover what the sensational Mediterranean island has to offer – exploring everything from breathtaking sights such as Mount Etna and authentic old towns right through to sampling Sicilian cuisine and perhaps even indulging in a tango or two.
“With sun, sea, lots of laughs and plenty of surprises in store as well, Anton and Giovanni promise to give viewers a Mediterranean adventure to remember.”
Anton Du Beke said: “When I first heard about this trip it was pretty irresistible. What’s not to love? It’s all my favourite things, great food, great country and spending time in the sunshine with Giovanni. Marvellous!”
Giovanni Pernice added: “To say this has been a dream project is an understatement! Taking Anton to my much-loved home of Sicily was simply Bellissima! We danced, we laughed, and had the time of our lives – with great culture, food and company. I cannot wait for viewers in the UK to come on this journey with us. See you in the Sicilian sun! Ciao, x.”
