“I’ve been asked for 1000. I want to meet him, but not paying this.”

Giovanni has appeared as a professional dancer on BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing since 2015. His first celebrity partner on the show was Coronation Street actress Georgia May Foote.

The pair finished as joint runners-up with Kellie Bright and Kevin Clifton.

Meanwhile, Giovanni recently celebrated finishing his six-month UK tour.

Sharing a snap of him on stage, he wrote last month: “The final day has arrived. 6 months touring the UK – 160 shows across every city.

“‘This Is Me’ and ‘Him and Me’ has been the best way to celebrate the most incredible year! I couldn’t have done it without the incredible casts and backstage crew.
