Giovanni Pernice ‘dumps Jess Wright after struggling with her popularity’

Strictly Come Dancing hunk Giovanni Pernice has reportedly dumped Jess Wright after struggling to come to terms with her popularity.

It’s said that the dancer couldn’t cope with all the attention the former TOWIE babe was getting.

It comes just one month after he said that their romance would never be affected by the BBC show’s infamous curse when it returns later this year.

Giovanni coupled up with Mark Wright’s sister last year and is said to have left her devastated after calling time on their relationship.

A source close to the dancer told The Sun : "He was really into Jess and did want to make a go of it, but he struggled with the attention she gets and her popularity.

"They’ve tried to keep things amicable and told people they have both agreed to go their separate ways, but he was the one who first suggested things were going to end.

"She has been really upset by this. It’s a real shame but hopefully things will stay civil."

And while she seems to have disappeared from his Instagram account, some snaps of him still remain on hers.

The most recent is from April 13, when she shared a loved-up snap of them sharing a smooch after she’d watched his theatre show, Born To Win.

She wrote alongside it: "P R O U D very proud girlfriend today after watching the first show of the #borntowin tour last night. Amazing. If you haven’t booked I highly recommend"

Speaking about the Strictly curse last month, Giovanni said: "I don’t believe in it. I always say you are the owner of your life.

"People can be really clever or not. We are dancers, we are used to doing this all our lives.

"I’ve been dancing 20 years — this is my job. It’s like an actor who has to kiss somebody on screen."

Mirror Online has contacted Jess and Giovanni’s representatives for comment.
