Strictly in new feud as pro dancer snubs show finalists in surprise move just days after final | The Sun

STRICTLY Come Dancing pro Giovanni Pernice has sparked speculation of a feud after it was revealed he’s not following any of the series finalists this series.

Gio, 33, has decided not to keep up with the antics of winner Ellie Leach, Layton Williams or Bobby Brazier.

He only follows 169 people on Instragam and the stars of Strictly 2023 are not amongst them.

The dancer had a rocky road on the show this year after things didn’t go to plan with his celebrity partner Amanda Abbington.

Not long after the series kicked off it was reported that there was friction between the pair.

The pair were at loggerheads, but put on a brave face while in front of the cameras.

But shortly after Amanda missed an episode before pulling out the series completely.

She later announced she was leaving the series – and failed to mention Giovanni in her exit statement.

Amanda also decided not to return to take part in the final, meaning Giovanni’s journey came to a very abrupt end.

The Italian dancer had previously won the show with Rosa Ayling-Ellis in 2021.

He did however make a brief appearance during the last show, which saw Ellie Leach life the Glitterball trophy.

Viewers were left feeling sad for him as he was forced to dance alone during the group number.

One person wrote: “I hope they give someone nice to Giovanni next series, poor guy.”

While someone else said: “They should have given Giovanni a solo…”
