It’s ON: Strictly’s Giovanni Pernice confirms Ashley Roberts romance

They were caught passionately kissing after a Nando's date by The Sun.

And now it seems that Strictly Come Dancing's Giovanni Pernice and Ashley Roberts can no longer deny that they are an item.

The pro dancer appeared on Lorriane and was quizzed about his love life.

When he was asked if he had spent Christmas in the US with Ashley, the 28-year-old said, ''We spent time together, yes.”

Lorraine went on to say that it was ''early days'' for the couple and hoped that it went well for them, to which Giovanni thanked her.

The pair have been rumoured to be dating for months and it seems that things have gone up a notch as Giovanni flew to the States to spend Christmas with Ashley and her family.

Ashley reached the finals of Strictly alongside her pro dance partner Pasha Kovalev while Giovanni did too, with former Steps singer Faye Tozer.

They reportedly became close during rehearsals but kept their blossoming relationship under wraps.

According to The Sun, ''This is a sign of just how heavily Giovanni has fallen for Ashley during the three to four months they were working in close ­quarters together. But because of the show’s punishing rehearsal and performance schedule they couldn't spend as much time together as they might have liked.''

We wish them all the best as a couple together.
