    A nod to split from Maura

    Giovanni & Rose's dance stunned viewers when they danced a Viennese waltz to Alicia Key's 2009 ballad Fallin' about a couple's stormy relationship.

    Those watching at home were convinced it was a nod to Gio's recent split from Love Island star Maura Higgins.

    The Sun revealed the pro dumped Maura earlier this month saying he didn't want to settle down.

    Friends say she was “devastated” when Giovanni gave her the push.

    Explained: Who's left Strictly so far?

    Here's who has left the show so far:

    • Week two: Nina Wadia and Neil Jones
    • Week three: Katie McGlynn and Gorka Marquez
    • Withdrawn: Robert Webb and Dianne Buswell
    • Week four: Greg Wise and Karen Hauer
    • Week five: Ugo Monye and Oti Mabuse

    Sneaky Giovanni

    It turns out Giovanni was even active on celebrities’ site Raya on October 5, yet on October 2, Love Island star Maura, 30, posted pictures of her and the Italian hunk on her Instagram account.

    A source said: “Giovanni’s profile was on Raya while he was still very much with Maura. It does not state he is just looking for friendship.

    “It is clearly for dates and it will be another blow to Maura.

    "Gio said he wasn’t actively using the app but it only takes two seconds to delete.

    "No woman in their right mind would be happy if their other half had a phone full of dating apps.”

    Maura’s relationship with Giovanni was her first in the public eye since her split in May with former Love Island co-star Chris Taylor, 31.

      Rylan grills AJ & Kai (continued…)

      Bursting into laughter, the couple didn’t confirm or deny any romance going on, with Kai instead tactically responding with discussion on the choreography. 

      “We said this right, and I said this to you, I said if people react like this, then it means we’re doing something right, because that’s the way the dance should be danced,” he explained. 

      “Leandro Maria choreographed it this way, it was a very passionate song, a real fiery piece, and very intimate, and that’s what we wanted, and that is the characterisation of the Argentine Tango. 

      Keeping an arm tight around AJ, he continued: “So if people want to think that, then great, but we’re just doing our job and she did a great job.” 

      Rylan also shrugged off the speculation, taking their side and declaring: “Just doing their job, alright? Stop it, leave them alone!

      Motsi Mabuse reacts to Shirley Ballas' health video

      Shirley Ballas' fellow Strictly judge Motsi Mabuse responded to her video addressing health concerns.

      Rylan grills AJ and Kai over romance rumours

      STRICTLY Come Dancing’s AJ Odudu and Kai Widdrington have continued to play coy about potential romance rumours after being grilled by Rylan. 

      The pair appeared on Strictly spin-off It Takes Two to discuss their breathtaking Argentine Tango, which earned them 35 points last week and was credited by Shirley Ballas as “World Championship standard”. 

      However, it also set tongues wagging with their intense and sizzling chemistry during the sexed-up routine, with the dance usually angled on a romantic partnership. 

      In fact, fans were even convinced they were on the edge of kissing, only to stop themselves. 

      It seems even Rylan was lured in by the possibility of the pair doing the tango on and off the dancefloor, and seized his opportunity to ask during the chat. 

      He asked: “Can we settle a few scores here please? I’ve known AJ for many a year now, I know she can’t lie to me, what’s going on?”

      "All in all, a little concerning for my doctor," she added in a video posted on Instagram.

      Strictly come partying

      STRICTLY pro Graziano Di Prima went partying just hours after dance partner Judi Love warned about Covid dangers.

      The Loose Women star had to miss last week’s show after testing positive for the virus.

      And on Monday, she filmed a video from her bed at home where she has been isolating.

      But that night Graziano, 27, was seen without a mask in a busy bar in Soho, central London, and was snapped with ex-pro Robin Windsor.

      A TV insider said: “He has done nothing wrong as he is double-jabbed and had tested negative.

      “But it’s a terrible look for the show, which has strict social distancing measures in place for filming.

      “And this isn’t the first time that pros have been seen breaking social distancing, which makes it very uncomfortable for producers.”
