Strictly Come Dancing may be SCRAPPED amid Giovanni investigation as more proof emerges


Strictly Come Dancing‘s future is said to be under threat and review after the show’s former professional Giovanni Pernice was accused of mistreating his past female partners.

At the moment, the BBC are scouring through nine years of Strictly footage to confirm or deny claims from three celebrities.

It is claimed three past contestants are compiling dossiers to hand to their £700-an-hour lawyers before sending it to BBC bosses.


A number of ex-dance partners, who are working with renowned legal firm Carter Ruck, claim they have photographic evidence to prove they sustained injuries.

It is alleged Gio’s ‘brutal’ training methods left his dance partners ‘black and blue’. 


A source told The Sun: ‘This is all-out war. These women — and there are more in conversations with Carter Ruck — are being incredibly brave in taking a stand.

‘Despite this, they are getting enormous stick from Gio’s loyal fans, claiming they are savagely out to end a man’s career, and effectively being snowflakes.

‘This is unheard of in a supposedly wholesome competition.

‘There are allegedly photos of them with black and blue limbs which are expected to form part of their lawyer’s dossier of evidence.’

It is also alleged Giovanni sent at least two of the women ‘one or two deeply unpleasant messages’ which they have kept a record of.

The source claimed that the women fear losing other BBC contracts if they speak out but are going ahead as planned as they feel it is ‘the right thing to do’ and to stop other people experiencing the same.


It is also claimed BBC bosses are looking at their handling of the duty of care for stars on the show.

Giovanni and his fellow professional dancers on the show are taken on as freelancers but it is claimed the behind-the-scenes procedures will be overhauled, with compulsory psychiatric testing for future celebrities.

In addition, rehearsals could be filmed and monitored, with an additional member of staff on hand at all times for support.

Per The Sun, the three celebrities making allegations against Giovanni asked for chaperones during their time on the show but their requests were denied.
