Strictly Come Dancing professional Giovanni Pernice, 30, has made some pretty wild claims about his sexual performance between the sheets. The BBC star has rated himself a “2000 out of ten” in bed, and hinted that he could have sex “150 times a week” in a very colourful new interview.
You should ask people who have been with me… Or try yourself
The Italian dancer rose to fame on the talent competition in 2015, and being paired with numerous celebrities over the years and reaching the finals further threw him into the spotlight.
He even found romance on the show, after confirming his relationship with Heart FM host Ashley Roberts in 2018, before the pair split in 2020 after more than a year together.
Now, he’s given candid details about what he looks for in a woman while jokingly about his prowess.
When asked how he would rate himself, he quipped: “Two thousand!
“You should ask people who have been with me… Or try yourself.”
He also believes that being Italian means he’s ageing “like a fine wine”.
Giovanni then delved a little further into his sex life, noting how often he has sex.
“If I’m in a relationship, it depends on your partner – if your partner is busy, if you’re on holiday, at home,” he shrugged.
“You can have sex 150 times a week or once – you’ve just got to make it good!”
The dancer went on to describe his ideal woman as “blonde with blue eyes”, stating to Heat magazine: “Obviously you’ve got to look good otherwise it’s not going to happen.
“But I go more for the connection than what you look like,” adding that “great conversation” is only necessary in a long-term relationship and those who have one night stands should “shut up”.
But despite his glowing confidence, the Strictly star revealed his softer side too, as he admitted he felt “lonely” following his split from Pussycat Dolls girlfriend Ashley in January, right before the first coronavirus lockdown.
Addressing their split, he said: “Like for everybody, it’s been strange.
“I broke up with my girlfriend just before lockdown and you just deal with it.
He added: “It was lonely, but luckily, Strictly came back and there was the distraction of being in quarantine with everybody else. It shifted my brain to something else.”
The 30-year-old was linked romantically with his most recent Strictly partner Good Morning Britain’s Ranvir Singh last year, although the rumours were dismissed and laughed off by both parties.
The pro dancer also quashed claims that he and show partner Debbie McGee were involved in 2017, but he has had other high profile relationships, including TOWIE star Jess Wright, which stemmed from the program.
The pair dated for six months before they split in 2018, and he also had a brief romance with Coronation Street actress Georgia May Foote after the pair were partnered together back in 2015.
The tell-all interview comes after Giovanni was reportedly seen on dating app Raya, with a source telling The Sun back in March: “Giovanni is a good looking chap and is keeping all his options open at the moment.
“He’s keen to find love again and Raya appears to be the place to do it.”
