Gentlemanly Giovanni Pernice stuck close by his Strictly Come Dancing partner Ranvir Singh 's side as she teetered around in her high heels.

The pair were spotted dressed to the nines as they hung out outside the show.

They've been wowing everyone with their sexy Strictly performances, which have fuelled rumours that there's something going on off the dancefloor as well, although they've insisted that they're just friends.

As they were pictured out together, professional dancer Giovanni looked handsome in a three-piece suit and shiny shoes, while Good Morning Britain presenter Ranvir stunned in a tight-fitting black dress and peep toe heels.

They've both laughed off suggestions that their steamy dancefloor performances were anything more than just that.

A friend of Giovanni told The Sun : "The romance viewers think they see between them is just for TV.

"They have forged a close friendship but there isn't a spark like that between them.

"Both of them are getting tired of the rumours."

Ranvir was even quizzed by her GMB co-star Piers Morgan.

He said to her on the show: "Do you know what that reminds me of, Ranvir? I once interviewed Torvill and Dean for Life Stories and I remember being told, 'You're never, ever going to get anything out of them anything about any kind of romance' and I said, 'You leave it to me – I recognise the science!'

"They eventually cracked and admitted they snogged at the back of the bus. So I'm asking you directly – has there been any hanky panky?"

But Ranvir fired back: "No, of course not! There really hasn't!

But Ranvir and Giovanni insist there's nothing going on

"I think he's just very much about the energy of the performance, it's so much more than learning the steps or learning the routine or any of those things.

"Because I'm a total beginner – I'm never going to be able to do the steps that Maisie [Smith] is able to do, that's the truth of the matter!"
