They finally confirmed that yes, they are a thing, in February.
And now that the cat’s out of the bag, Giovanni Pernice and Jess Wright have made their public debut as a couple, walking the red carpet at the TRIC Awards in London.
Experimenting with a spot of couples’ dressing, the loved-up pair both opted for black, with Jess showing off her toned pins in a black mini-dress.
They are believed to have been introduced by Jess’ brother Mark, who apparently got to know dancer Giovanni during his own stint on Strictly Come Dancing.
And after months of whispers, last month they finally confirmed they’re together with a super sweet snap on Instagram.

They were joined on the ruby rug by Melanie Sykes and Laura Whitmore , who both fixed up and looked sharp in black midi-dresses with plunging necklines.
Love Island ‘s Gabby Ellen got her pins out in a thigh-skimming back dress with feather detailling, while fellow alum Amber Davis went full side-boob in a racy red number.
Rebekah Vardy wore a strange baby blue shorts and overcoat combination that somehow worked; Charlotte Hawkins chose a pretty floral number, and Georgia ‘ Toff ‘ Toffolo worked head-to-toe white in a trouser and top combo.

Strictly Come Dancing star Debbie McGee kept it classy in a metallic suit, while Lisa Snowdon made the most of the unseasonably balmy temperatures by showing off her bare legs in a cute white shift dress, and Gaby Roslin opted for a white tux jacket.

Joey Essex decided it was high time to take some fashion risks in a black hat which brought to mind a plant pot.
Supporting her husband Eammon Holmes – who was up for Best News Presenter – Ruth Langsford wore wide legged black Ted Baker pants and a white Zara jacket, writing on Instagram, “Wine at lunchtime….could get messy!!”
Sticking with the black theme were Kimberley Walsh and Montana Brown, with the former showing off her tiny waist in a ruffled off-the-shoulder jumpsuit.
Kirsty Gallacher went for a calf-skimming blue frock that showed off her slim arms, and Jess Wright and Giovanni Pernice twinned in black.

Loose Woman Christine Bleakley dazzled in an ankle-length polka dot dress, which she teamed with a pair of killer black heels.
Jamie Lomas kept it casual in jeans and a jumper as he posed with his I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here buddy Toff on the red carpet.
While practical Bake Off star Pru Leith kept the cold out in a cosy puffer jacket and eye-catching red scarf.

Held at Grosvenor House, the TV and Radio Industries Club Awards honour achievements in TV and radio, with the winners voted for by members of the industry.
Fighting it out for the TV Personality of the Year Award were Ant & Dec, Holly Willoughby and Keith Lemon.
The big four – Coronation Street, EastEnders, Emmerdale and Hollyoak – were all up for Soap of the Year, while Love Island, Made in Chelsea and The Real Housewives of Cheshire were set to thrash it out for Best Reality Show.
Loose Women will compete with BBC Breakfast and This Morning in the Daytime category – and to celebrate, the Loose Women were taking a day off air so they could all go to the ceremony.
