Speaking directly to the camera, Giovanni insisted he had “no problem” with his celebrity partner Richie.

“We are having a good – we’re definitely having a good time. Obviously, it’s a dance competition at the end of the day, so we have to learn something.”

“But there is no problem. Where is the camera?,” he asked before facing the camera. “There is no problem between us, we are having a good time. So forget about what you are writing, it’s not true.”
