In an exclusive chat, Giovanni, who secretly started Essex stunner Jess in November, said: “Of course I want to settle darling, I’m Italian. "I want to have a big family, it’s just not the time. I’m 27 years old, I really want to dance has much as I can.” On the dreaded Strictly curse he added: “I don’t believe in it. I always say you are the owner of your life. “People can be really clever or not. We are dancers, we are used to doing this all our lives. “I’ve been dancing 20 years – this is my job. It’s like an actor who has to kiss somebody on screen.” The coupe have remained extremely private about their romance, but made their first red carpet appearance together at the Tric Awards on March 13. And in what would be a dream move for Jess, Giovanni has also backed calls to introduce same sex couples onto Strictly Come Dancing. He claimed the Italian version, Dancing With The Stars, had already made huge strides by taking the decision and claimed it is something all the pro-dancers are waiting for.
