Laura Whitmore has finally spoken out about her relationship with Dancing with the Stars partner, Giovanni Pernice.

There has been speculation that the dancing partners have been romantically involved since they started rehearsing together and now the tv presenter has put a stop to those rumours.

The Irish star has revealed that their relationship is purely platonic and although she is dating -she’s definitely not dating Giovanni.

“My relationship with Giovanni is completely professional.” she told The Daily Mail.

“That’s all I ever want it to be. When all this happened he called me and told me not to let any of it get to me, to ignore it and get on with the show.

“To be honest he’s far too young for me and even though I’m single I’m still going on a couple of dates when I have the time – but not with Giovanni.”

Giovanni used to go out with Laura’s close pal, Georgia May Foote, and although the blonde beauty said her friend has been great about the whole situation, she still feels the rumours tainted her experience on the show.

“This whole thing with Giovanni blew up in my face.” she said.

“I couldn’t believe it could all go so wrong, so fast. Georgia – who is a good friend of mine – has been lovely but I felt things had been spoilt before I’d even got a chance to start.”

The Bray native also admitted that she doesn’t like the way people make presumptions about her love life  without knowing her.

‘I’m just so upset about it. My problem is that people have no idea who I am.” she said. “To them I’m this TV presenter with blonde hair who gets linked to every single man I interview or stand next to.”
