Although Strictly Come Dancing 2022 doesn’t kick off for a couple of months yet, Giovanni Pernice has teased a reunion with one of his fellow professional dancers.

Giovanni – who won the show in 2021 with pal Rose Ayling-Ellis – is wrapping up on the last day of his gruelling six-month tour today (July 22).

However, far from heading off on holiday to relax, it appears Giovanni is getting straight back into it.

And, not only that, he has teased an “exciting” reunion with a fellow pro.

So just what are the boys up to?!

Giovanni said he “can’t wait” – and neither can we if it means we either get some new pictures of the hunky pair or the pros’ rehearsals for Strictly Come Dancing 2022 are starting!

Giovanni shared a picture of himself on stage to Instagram and said: “The final day has arrived. 6 months touring the UK – 160 shows across every city.”

He added: “This Is Me and Him and Me has been the best way to celebrate the most incredible year!”

He then thanked the “incredible” cast and backstage crew who’d worked on the shows.

Giovanni replied: “And I can’t wait!!!”

When did Strictly Come Dancing rehearsals start last year?

Of course, last year the Strictly dancers bubbled up and recorded the group numbers ahead of the live shows starting.

So could this be what the pair are up to?

Time will most definitely tell – and so will we once we get any more information!

ED! has contacted a rep for Strictly for comment.
