She wowed the judges with her latest Strictly performance, but that doesn’t mean Laura Whitmore is without her critics.
Last week, the Bray native hit headlines after reportedly ignoring Georgia May Foote’s request to stop posting photos of her dance partner and Georgia’s ex, Giovanni Pernice, on social media.
Since then, the former Coronation Street star has unfollowed the popular presenter online, presumably in a bid to distance herself from her former friend’s dance practices.
Now, Geordie Shore’s Marnie Simpson has decided to weigh in on the drama by criticising both Laura and Giovanni in her latest Star magazine column.
Fresh from her stint in Lithuania with Chloe Ferry, Lewis Bloor’s girlfriend wrote: “I don’t know why Georgia May Foote is bothered about her ex Giovanni Pernice – he’s not even nice.”
“She’s a beautiful girl and can do so much better.”
“People are saying he’ll hook up with his new partner Laura Whitmore,” she continued. “But Georgia is way better.”
The 24-year-old Celebrity Big Brother contestant added: “Laura was really cold to me when I met her.”
Something tells us this has more to do with Marnie and Laura, than Georgia and Giovanni.
