The Strictly Come Dancing curse has struck for the third time this series, as it looks like another couple could be on the horizon.
Ashley Roberts and professional dancer, Giovanni Pernice, have reportedly gone on several dates together in recent weeks.
Although the dancers aren’t partnered together, as Ashley is with Pasha Kovalev and Giovanni is dancing with Faye Tozer, the pair have allegedly grown very close since the show started.
“The spark between Ashley and Giovanni has become quite widely noticed among the crew – they just seem to really hit it off,” a source told The Sun.
“He is training up north at the moment while she is based down here so they only get to see each other towards the end of the week. But they’ve been making the most of it.”
The pair have reportedly been going out together every week, as the source said: “After the show each week they’ve been heading out for drinks together in London and just hanging out and looking very cosy.”

“It’s very early days but it looks like things are going well – and of course they’re both single so it’s all totally innocent fun.”
This isn’t the professional dancer’s first time dating a contestant on Strictly, as he previously dated Coronation Street‘s Georgia May Foote when she was on the show in 2015.
