The pair, who reached the 2015 Strictly Come Dancing final, have been dating for one month after first meeting on the BBC show.

Georgia, who is currently based in Manchester, recently revealed that she is relocating to London.

"I’m going to move to London because I’m just at that age now.," Georgia told The Mirror.

When asked if the two would be moving in together, they both replied "yes".

Georgia is reported to have gotten close to Giovanni after she turned to him during the breakdown of her relationship to fellow Coronation Street actor Sean Ward.

Georgia is said to have sought comfort in Giovanni following the breakdown of her relationship with her fellow soap actor Sean after a string of rows. 

The couple are alleged to have ended their eight-month romance shortly after the Strictly final a few weeks ago amid his "insecurity" over the on-screen couple's relationship.

Last November Georgia condemned reports of the "Strictly Curse", telling The Mirror: "It's so stupid and quite offensive hearing rumours like that. Giovanni and I are just good mates - it's lovely."

Over the years the "Strictly Curse" has seen marriages and relationships ruined when celebrities fall for their professional dance partners.
