A Strictly source told the paper: ‘While many men hate being talked about, he loved the fact that he was the source of some more saucy gossip.
‘He doesn’t seem to care. He is single and loves being called an Italian stallion. A lot of the cast know this girl. She was beaming and hasn’t denied the story.’
The fling comes amid ongoing rumours Giovanni has been romancing Strictly finalist Ashley, with the singer herself admitting last month that they ‘gone out for drinks.’

A representative for Giovanni has been approached by MailOnline for comment.
Despite trying to quash the romance rumours, it was reported earlier this month that Giovanni comforted Ashley after she found herself in the dance off for the first time.
According to The Mirror, Ashley, 37, was ‘passionately embraced’ by the Italian choreographer, 28, as he planted a kiss on her cheek.
The insider elaborated: ‘Giovanni didn’t hesitate to go over to Ashley once the cameras stopped rolling.

The Italian was seen feeding Faye and touching her lips. While Faye insisted her dance partner was simply brushing food off her face, she did admit soon after that Strictly had put a strain on her nine year marriage to Mick Smith.

She told The Sun: ‘It’s always tricky being away from home. You just have to keep your head above water. We’ve just got to keep really tight as a family unit and make sure we communicate — I think that’s the only way. But it is tough being away from home because we miss each other.’
Mick poked fun at the pictures of the duo dining out together, as he took to Instagram with rice stuck to his mouth and teased: ‘Where’s @pernicegiovann1 when you need him? Help me out @fayetozersmith.’
Faye has previously credited her husband for being ‘so supportive’ of her Strictly Come Dancing stint, revealing Mick has come down to the studios to support her ‘every week’ in an interview with OK! magazine.
