Georgia may foote

Laura Whitmore, 31, and her Strictly Come Dancing partner Giovanni Pernice, 26, left the show earlier this month amid rumours of a feud between the two.

Now Laura has been accused of being a "bully" with friends of the Italian dancer coming forward to speak out about the pair's relationship. 

"Laura was a piece of work, she really was. She made Giovanni’s life hard" a source close to Giovanni told The Sun. 

Incredibly, Laura has also been accused of sending abusive text messages to the dancer, undermining his skills and "basically saying he was no good and was not doing anything for her and abusing him."

"She was a difficult, cold fish – she was a bully to Giovanni and he behaved like a total gent. Giovanni is just relieved it’s all over" finished the source. 

The pair left the competition in Week 7 after competing in the bottom two.

Another source disagreed about how the events unfolded, telling the DailyMail.com: "Gio was quite mean to her backstage and it tainted the whole experience for her."

"She isn't a submissive person and they had a few professional disagreements," said the source.

Laura is also known to be good friends with Giovanni's ex-girlfriend Georgia May Foote, who he partnered with on Strictly last year. Awkward. 

“The atmosphere between Laura and Gio was never that great, but it’s now turned toxic" a third source also told The Sun.

“They clashed during rehearsals as Laura got increasingly agitated with Gio’s tone and general rudeness."

Gio was also accused by the experts of stealing the limelight in their final dance which ultimately cost them their place in the show. 


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.


Laura Whitmore and Georgia May Foote were once close pals, but now it seems they're after falling out over a boy.

Georgia ended her relationship with dancer Giovanni Pernice in August after famously becoming an item after her stint on Strictly Come Dancing.

According to The Sun Online, the actress texted Laura about working so closely to her ex, but it totally backfired.

And since then Georgia has unfollowed Laura on all of her social media channels.

An insider said: "Georgia confronted Laura over the pictures of her and Giovanni.

"She knew they would get close because of the hours they're putting in during training but Georgia just wanted Laura to stop plastering it across social media because she's still upset about the split."

But apparently, Laura hit back, and said her former bestie was trying to ruin her time on the show.

"Laura was furious and didn't hold back, telling her, 'You're ruining my Strictly experience.'

"Georgia thinks Laura's being a real diva and is throwing their friendship away. All Georgia wanted was for her to be a bit more low key but Laura's having none of it."

Ouch, it looks like the claws are out.


It looks like Georgia May Foote and Giobanni Pernice's relationship is all over!

The couple, who were dance partners on Strictly Come Dancing last year, have decided they are better off as just friends.

The former Coronation Street actress shared a message on Twitter about the break-up today and thanked fans for their support.

"It is with great sadness we have decided to split up. There is nobody else involved," the statement read.

"Although it was not an easy decision to make sometimes you realise that it is better to be friends and this is one of those times.

"We both have very busy work schedules for the rest of the year so we are both going to focus on our upcoming projects and we wish each other well for the future."

Georgia finished with: "Thank you all for your support for us during and after the series. I love you all very much. @pernicegiovann1."



Sean Ward who?

It seems that Georgia May Foote has totally forgotten all about her former boyfriend as she makes plans to move in with recently confirmed new bae, Giovanni Pernice. 

Having only been dating a month, the pair confirmed they are planning to shack up in an interview with the Mirror yesterday. 

The Corrie star revealed that she was making plans to move from her family home in Manchester to London. And why?

Well, apparently the 24-year-old is "just at that age now."

And when asked if she would be moving in with Giovanni, they both reportedly replied "Yes!"

The pair will be seemingly spending ALL their time together from now on so as they are also currently in training for the Strictly Come Dancing tour. 

"It's so nice to be able to spend this time together. We had such an amazing experience on Strictly, it's nice to be able to go on tour together now and experience this," said Georgia. 

"It's the full journey, it's been amazing."

We bet it has… 

While Georgia was with her boyfriend of seven months Sean Ward while filming the show, the pair went their separate ways pretty much right after the final. 

And though rumours circulated about a budding romance between Georgia and her dance partner, the pair only confirmed it a few weeks back when Giovanni posted a cute selfie with his new lady. 

And since then the couple have been pretty up front with their relationship and even reportedly enjoyed a holiday to Disneyland in their time off. 

Let's hope this one lasts, folks. 


While they refuse to speak about the nature of their relationship, all signs suggest that Giovanni Pernice and Georgia May Foote are most definitely ON. 

The couple have been spending plenty of time together both personally and professionally as they are in training with the rest of the cast of the show ahead of the Strictly Come Dancing tour. 

Just today, the pair were spotted arriving at the rehearsal studio totally relaxed, holding hands and looking like a definite couple. 

While we all may have been feeling the palpable sexual chemistry between the Corrie actress and her dance partner over the course of the show, hopes for romance were dashed as Georgia was with boyfriend, Sean Ward. 

However, as the handsome couple announced their split after just seven months of dating following the finale of the show, rumours of the 24-year-old's cosy relationship with Giovanni surfaced once again. 

Throughout the course of the show, media outlets reported heated arguments with Sean that left Georgia in tears backstage and it all stemmed from the developing 'friendship' between Georgia and new professional on the show, Giovanni. 

And now it seems that it's official as Giovanni even shared a cute selfie of the couple on his Instagram with the adorable caption "GG" followed by a heart emoji. 


We just hope if Giovanni is on the show next year, that this romance doesn't also succumb to the dreaded Strictly curse. 


Ah, the Strictly curse strikes again. Another year of Strictly Come Dancing, another ruined relationship and another budding romance. 

While we all may have been feeling the palpable sexual chemistry between Corrie actress Georgia May Foote and her dance partner, Giovanni Pernice, hopes for romance were dashed as Georgia was with boyfriend, Sean Ward. 

However, as the handsome couple announced their split after seven months of dating following the finale of the show, rumours of the 24-year-old's cosy relationship with her dance partner surfaced once again. 

Throughout the course of the show, media outlets reports heated arguments with Sean that left Georgia in tears backstage and it all stemmed from the developing 'friendship' between Georgia and new professional on the show, Giovanni. 

And it seems that the pair are finally going public with there romance as the Italian dancer shared a snap of the couple with his head resting on her freshly, lightened barnet. 

Strictly Come Dancing has claimed many a relationship over it's eleven year run with winner Jay McGuiness and Aliona Vilani's closeness reportedly causing problems for the dancer's marriage. 

Meanwhile on Celebrity Big Brother, former professional on the show Kristina Rihanoff just announced her pregnancy with her former Strictly dance partner, Ben Cohen who was married at the time they were on the show together. 


She slammed romance rumours with her dancing partner a while ago – but that was before she split with her boyfriend.

Georgia May Foote has reportedly been seen kissing her Strictly Come Dancing partner Giovanni Pernice during a break in Paris after she broke up with Coronation Street star Sean Ward. 

The Sun on Sunday is reporting that the pair were seen holding hands during a romantic getaway in Paris and then shared a kiss at the Magic Circus Hotel. 

However, the reports must be pretty devastating for Sean, who supported Georgia all the way through her Strictly experience.

A source told the newspaper, "[Georgia and Giovanni] were definitely trying to keep a low profile, but seemed really besotted. They were kissing in full view of lots of people.

"One morning Giovanni ate his breakfast alone, but he made sure he took her breakfast in bed… He obviously wanted to spoil her and treat her really well."

So, it seems dancing is the way to go to find love. 



Coronation Street actress Georgia May Foote is set to finish up on the show very soon – but that's not the only part of her life she'll be leaving behind. 

Georgia, who plays Katy Armstrong in the long-running soap, has also reportedly dumped her fiancé and long-term love John Sage. The pair have been together since their early teens and got engaged two years ago.

However according to The Sun, Georgia  broke the news to friends and cast members at her leaving do that she had said goodbye to John and was planning a move to the US to further her career. "She was telling everyone they'd split up and she was looking forward to a future acting career in America" said a source from the show.

"Everyone was very surprised because she has been very happy with him and never been interested in a showbiz lifestyle. But this will be a new start for her."

It was revealed last week that Katy Armstrong's departure from Weatherfield will be linked to her reunion with her estranged mother Linda, and that she will flee the cobbles for sunny Portugal.

Speaking on This Morning yesterday, Georgia said she was gutted to be leaving Coronation Street but that the time was right. "I’m a bit sad – obviously I’m going to miss loads of people, the crew, the production team, my cast mates and all that, but I’m ready…It’s been nearly five years now so it’s a long stint to do there and I’m excited.”

Sounds like there are lots of big changes ahead for the actress!



Coronation Street star Georgia May Foote has been signed by Select Model Management and is obviously over the moon.

The absolutely stunning 23-year-old who plays Katie Armstrong in the show certainly gives Michelle Keegan a run for her money in the looks department and it seems Select agree.

The actress, who has already filmed her final scenes in the popular soap, says this is “an absolute dream come true”. Georgia’s not the only one who is thrilled though with the Head of Special Bookings at the modelling agency saying: "Select Special Bookings are excited by this beautiful, talented young actress and see a great future for her in the fashion world."

So alls well that ends well for the star who admitted that it wasn’t her decision to leave the cobbles: “'I was a bit gutted that leaving Corrie wasn’t my decision – it’s like a boyfriend dumping you first – but I’m really excited."

Wonder what Chesney thinks about Joseph’s mum becoming a model … hmmm!



Corrie star, Georgia May Foote was apparently rushed to hospital yesterday, after the actress collapsed on set.

Georgia who plays Katy on the hit soap, was due to film her upcoming scenes when she fainted.

The actress was apparently “tended by paramedics for 30 minutes” before being taken to hospital.

An inside source said that everyone was concerned about Georgia as she is not the type of person to make a fuss.

“She’s not the kind of person who likes to make a fuss and will always get on with her work even if she’s feeling a bit under the weather. Corrie is like a family so naturally people are concerned for her.”

Georgia is now out of hospital and is at  home resting.

We hope you get better soon, Georgia.




Coronation Street actress, Georgia May Foote, has admitted that it was not her own decision to leave the TV show.

Georgia, who plays Katy Armstrong, opened up about her departure, saying: “I was a bit gutted that leaving Corrie wasn’t my own decision – it’s like a boyfriend dumping you first.”

Doesn’t sound like Georgia is too happy with the producers at the moment!

However, unlike her co-star, Michelle Keegan, who did make the decision to leave, Georgia’s character won’t be killed off: “Katy will not be killed off and the door will be left open for a possible return.”

Georgia has remained upbeat about the whole affair, however, saying: “It’s given me the kick I needed to move on to other things.”
