Michelle Visage, 53, has told Strictly Come Dancing’s Rose Ayling-Ellis, 26, that she might need to watch out for her partner Giovanni Pernice, 31. The TV personality spoke on The One Show about her predictions for this year’s show. 

I just warned her that she has her hands full!

Michelle Visage and Ronan Keating presented last night’s The One Show segment, and were joined by the likes of Matt Lucas. 

On the show, Ronan asked Michelle what she thought about this year’s Strictly lineup. 

Michelle said: “Oh it’s phenomenal, I am so excited! 

“I got a chance to FaceTime with my partner Giovanni and his partner Rose and I was talking to her.” 

She added: “I just warned her that she has her hands full!” 

Michelle was partnered with Giovanni in 2019, on series 17. 

The pair reached week nine of the show, and Giovanni hopes this year he will finally get the Glitterball trophy. 

Ronan then asked Michelle what she thought of this year’s contestants. 

She replied: “My friend John Whaite is dancing with Johannes, so I’m excited about that. 

“It’s the first male same sex couple, which I feel ridiculous saying but it’s happening!”

Ronan went on to ask Michelle who she thought should take the trophy this year. 

She replied: “That’s not fair is it, but I am going to put both those couples in the final.”

Giovanni has reached the final a record three times, but has always just missed out on the trophy. 

This year he has been partnered with Rose, the show’s first ever deaf contestant. 

Speaking exclusively to Express.co.uk Rose said: “I feel Strictly will be a good chance to break the stereotype of what deaf people can and can’t do. 

“A lot of people think deaf people cannot hear and enjoy music so this will be a good chance to break that stereotype.”

Giovanni is currently dating social media influencer Maura Higgins, having dated Strictly celebrities in the past. 

He previously dated Pussycat Dolls star Ashley Roberts, however, they split up in January 2020. 

They met whilst she was on the show even though they were not partnered together. 

He joined Strictly in 2015, where he was paired with actress Georgia May Foote, and a relationship blossomed. 

This ended shortly after in 2016. 

Fans have high hopes for Giovanni and Rose to lift this year’s Strictly Glitterball. 

You can catch Strictly Come Dancing tonight at 7pm.
