Strictly Come Dancing LATEST: Giovanni Pernice to star in new travel show with co-star judge after early exit from show


STRICTLY Come Dancing’s Giovanni Pernice & judge Anton Du Beke will star in a new three-part BBC travel series exploring Sicily.

Reigning Strictly champion Pernice, 32, will take Anton Du Beke, 56, to explore the Italian island where he is from – after he was booted from Strictly early in a shock exit.

Pernice said: “To say this has been a dream project is an understatement.

“Taking Anton to my much-loved home of Sicily was simply ‘bellissima’. We danced, we laughed, and had the time of our lives – with great culture, food and company. cannot wait for viewers in the UK to come on this journey with us.”

A teaser trailer shows Pernice and Du Beke sailing off the coast of Sicily.
