Strictly: Giovanni Pernice shows off ‘slimmed down’ figure

Dancing Trousers

Strictly Come Dancing pro Giovanni Pernice showed off his dapper new look on Instagram, but some fans were concerned about the dancer.

The reigning champ of the hit BBC show took to Instagram to show off his new haircut, and he looked every bit the part if he were to audition as the next James Bond.

The handsome dancer could be seen sitting on the wall smiling with his fresh trim, an undercut styled with shaved sides and a lengthy quiff.

He was also wearing a co-ordinated grey suit fit with a collared shirt, tailored jacket and suit trousers which he playfully paired with a pair of black and white converse.

Giovanni said: “You’re never fully dressed without a smile” as he caught up with his followers on Sunday (April 24).

But while most commented on his fresh hairdo, others were worried he had lost a lot of weight recently.

Fans of the professional dancer urged the star to take care of himself.

One wrote: “Hi Giovanni handsome and always with a smile constantly on the go you definitely have slimmed down take time for rest. Good luck to you and Rose for the BAFTA.”

Giovanni and his last Strictly partner Rose Ayling-Ellis are nominated for “TV Moment” at the BAFTAs for their incredible silent dance.

They stopped in the middle of their couple’s choice dance on the show to dance in complete silence as a symbol of what it is like to be deaf.
