Strictly’s Rose and Giovanni reunite as he brands her ‘partner in crime’

Strictly Come Dancing star Giovanni Pernice has finally reunited with his former dance partner Rose Ayling-Ellis.

The dancing duo won the hearts of the nation during last year's series of the BBC dancing show and ended up lifting the glitterball trophy together.

The pair formed a special bond on and off of the dancefloor and have stayed close friends since the series finished – they even won a TV BAFTA for their emotional Couple's Choice routine to Clean Bandit's Symhony.

And it's no surprise fans were delighted to see Rose and Giovanni back together this week.

Gio took to Instagram on Friday (December 29) to share sweet snaps of the moment he bumped into his dear friend Rose backstage in London.

The hunky Italian had gone to see both Rose and Strictly judge Anton du Beke appear in As You Like It at London's Soho Place theatre.

Giovanni and Rose smiled as they stood together with their arms around each other.

Soap star Rose looked cosy in a baby blue turtleneck jumper, matching the blue ensemble with a pair of jeans.

Gio looked dapper as always in a navy blazer and white collared shirt, teaming his look with beige trousers.

A second photo showed Rose getting poor Gio in a headlock, making it clear she was the boss now that Strictly was over.

He dubbed Rose his "second partner in crime" as he reflected on an "amazing evening" in his caption.
