Strictly Come Dancing’s Giovanni Pernice announces career change after show exit

Giovanni Pernice from BBC Strictly Come Dancing disclosed exhilarating professional updates following Amanda Abbington’s exit from the show. Giovanni’s stint in the 2023 season of the BBC One dance challenge was cut short when Amanda, his celebrity dance ally, revealed her inability to carry on.

Initially, Amanda was set to grace the dance floor in the show’s yearly Halloween event, having been absent the preceding weekend due to “medical issues.” Yet, prior to the recent live episode, it came to light that Amanda was bowing out of the competition for “personal reasons.” The actress from Sherlock expressed her regret, stating it was a tough but necessary decision due to personal circumstances.

Upon the announcement of Amanda’s departure, Giovanni shared a cozy photo on Instagram of them donned in festive attire from the Move Week special, expressing his sadness over the unforeseen end to their dance journey, but also his pride in their accomplishments.

Transitioning to an upbeat note, Giovanni later unveiled a delightful revelation. “My dream has finally materialized!” he exclaimed alongside a promotional image. He introduced “VITA,” his new unisex perfume, encapsulating the allure, vigor, and essence of Sicily. Describing his long-standing affection for fragrances and their ability to evoke emotions and transport one’s senses, he portrayed VITA as a manifestation of his fervor, a sophisticated scent that gently entices as it unveils itself on the skin. He further invited everyone to explore and fall in love with VITA, directing them to for more details.

Receiving a wave of supportive messages, past Strictly winner Ore Oduba and fellow dancer Gorka Marquez among others, conveyed their excitement and congratulations.

Earlier in summer, hints about Giovanni’s upcoming venture were dropped when he shared a contemplative photo of himself reviewing documents, teasing a “dream” project in the offing. The suspense lingered until he shared another photo on Instagram, this time with a female model, hinting at something stirring. Although the buzz was momentarily dimmed by his exit from Strictly, the recent revelation has brought it back to the spotlight.
