Strictly's Giovanni Pernice joins celeb dating app Raya after Ashley Roberts split

STRICTLY hunk Giovanni Pernice has joined exclusive dating app Raya in a bid to find love after his split from Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts.

The Italian ballroom pro, 30, joins the likes of Cara Delevingne, 28, Normal People’s Paul Mescal, 25, and Lewis Capaldi, 24, on the VIP dating service.

Giovanni split from Pussycat Doll girlfriend Ashley Roberts, 39, in January last year after meeting on the BBC1 primetime show.

A source close to the dancer told The Sun: “Giovanni is a good looking chap and is keeping all his options open at the moment.

“He’s keen to find love again and Raya appears to be the place to do it.”

Giovanni uses a professional shot of himself in a denim jacket with wet-look hair as his profile picture.

The Sun revealed this week that Tottenham star Dele Alli, 24, was seeking love on Raya after getting dumped by model Ruby Mae.

A pal said: “Dele’s still gutted about the break-up with Ruby but knows he’s got to look to the future.

“His pride was dented but now he is open about starting a relationship with the right person.”

Giovanni previously dated Coronation Street star Georgia May Foote, 30, after the pair were partnered together on Strictly in 2015.

She was dating co-star Sean Ward, 32, at the time but split with him shortly before announcing her relationship with the Italian dancer.

He also dated Towie star Jess Wright after meeting in 2017 but called it quits shortly before Strictly returned the following year.

Giovanni and Strictly partner Ranvir Singh were the subject of romance rumours during last year’s series but the dancer insisted the pair were just friends.

Asked if he would date Ranvir, he replied: “No, no, no no no. I’m single, absolutely there’s no way [I would date Ranvir].

“We are very very good friends.”

Giovanni recently told how he would like to be the first Strictly pro to dance in a male same-sex pairing.

He said: “If production came to me and said ‘Giovanni, we would love you to dance with a male partner’ I would definitely say yes.”
