Giovanni Pernice tells girlfriend Molly Brown 'I love you' as he kisses her in loved-up pics

Giovanni Pernice, the Strictly Come Dancing star, was seen expressing his love for girlfriend Molly Brown in a series of affectionate Instagram snaps taken during their romantic getaway to Dubai on Monday.

Despite rumours of a split, the couple, who made their relationship public at the end of February, demonstrated that they are still very much together.

The 33-year-old Strictly star was captured planting a kiss on the cheek of his 25-year-old model girlfriend as they enjoyed a sunny day at the beach.

Molly showed off her stunning figure in a black bikini while taking a dip in an extravagant infinity pool. Matching his girlfriend's attire, Giovanni showed off his fit physique in black swimming shorts.

In another photo, the pair looked cosy as Molly took a mirror selfie before they headed out for dinner. She looked gorgeous in a white cut-out dress, while the BBC star looked suave in a blue striped open-collar shirt.

Giovanni also showcased one of his impressive dance lifts, hoisting Molly into the air in a re-enactment of the iconic Dirty Dancing lift, set against the backdrop of the Dubai Fountains.

She captioned the post: “Let me tell you about my best friend…”

And responding in the comments, Giovanni declared his love for her as he gushed: “I love you like a lot!!”

Just last month, Giovanni dismissed rumours that he and Molly were engaged after she was spotted wearing a gold band.

In March, it was reported that the couple had called time on their brief romance. However, days later, the Strictly star was seen with the model leaving his show at the London Palladium.

Photos of Molly wearing a gold band on her ring finger as she and Giovanni left together, sparking engagement rumours. However, a representative for Giovanni shut down the rumours.

Giovanni will be going on tour next year

Strictly's Giovanni confirmed his new relationship with the model at the end of February.

Molly posted a cosy photo of the two with the caption 'Amore Mio', while Giovanni echoed the Italian phrase in the comments before sharing the snap on his own Instagram Stories.

Despite his future on Strictly being up in the air as the BBC has yet to announce its professional line-up for 2024, Giovanni has already revealed plans for a break next year following another round of touring. The TV personality shared the news on Instagram, posting a poster for Giovanni - The Last Dance , which will kick off on January 20, 2025.
