Giovanni Pernice Responds After Amanda Abbington’s Silent Exit from Strictly

After Amanda Abbington’s decision to exit the renowned show, ‘Strictly Come Dancing’, all eyes were on her dance partner Giovanni Pernice. Especially since Amanda’s heartfelt departure statement notably lacked any mention of him.

Amanda, known for her role in ‘Sherlock’, took to Instagram on Monday, October 23, to declare her departure from the show. Accompanying a photo of her dance shoes, she penned, “It is with deepest regret that I had to leave Strictly. I did not come to this decision easily or lightly but for personal reasons I am unable to continue. It was an absolute joy working with my fellow contestants… It’s a wonderful bunch of people and I’ll miss all of them.” She concluded by expressing sadness about not being able to carry on in the competition and extended her gratitude to everyone who supported her throughout.

Shortly before Amanda’s announcement, Giovanni had posted a photo of the duo on Instagram, commenting, “Amanda… I am so sad we can’t continue but I am proud of what we achieved and I am sending you so much love.” Despite Amanda’s omission of Giovanni in her farewell post, the dancer hasn’t responded to her post, nor has she engaged with his.

While many from the ‘Strictly’ community, including hosts Claudia Winkleman and Tess Daly, as well as contestant Zara McDermott and professional dancer Amy Dowden, engaged with Amanda’s post, the silence between the dance pair has been evident.

Behind the curtains, rumours swirl about Giovanni’s feelings. An inside source confided to the Daily Star, “This has really annoyed him. He’s barely heard from her for 10 days. She hasn’t been replying to messages or telling him what’s happening. He’s been complaining about it to friends. He’s frustrated.” The source added, “He is worried the drama will be damaging for his career and make him look bad.” In response, Giovanni’s representative labelled these claims as mere “nonsense”
