Georgia May Foote and Giovanni Pernice have sparked rumours of an engagement because former Coronation Street actress Georgia is sporting a ring on her left hand.
Strictly Come Dancing professional Giovanni posted a photo to his Instagram account and eagle-eyed viewers spotted the bling. However, wedding bells are not on the horizon. Not yet, anyway.

The ring was given to Georgia as a sign of his commitment.
The Italian clarified the matter on Twitter. “It’s a ring which means, in my tradition, we are together.”

Romance blossomed after Georgia and Giovanni were paired together on the BBC One ballroom show in 2015. Previously, the Bury-born star had been dating fellow Corrie actor Sean Ward, who played drug dealer Callum Logan.
Georgia has left no one in any doubt about her feelings. She posted a photo on Instagram with the words: “Amore Mio. Ti Amo Gio.”
Despite only a few months together, she said last month: “Gio is my best friend and he helped me through a lot. He’s the best thing that has ever happened to me. I’m in a very good place now. I’ve got good people around me.”
