Renowned professional dancer Giovanni Pernice is set to bid adieu to the dance floor of the iconic television show, Strictly Come Dancing, as confirmed by the BBC. The seasoned competitor, who clinched the 2021 victory with actress Rose Ayling-Ellis, will not be part of the upcoming series as reported amidst a cloud of controversy.

The decision marks the end of a tumultuous period for the BBC’s flagship dance competition, with Pernice embroiled in a storm of allegations surrounding his teaching methods and conduct. Former dance partners, including actor Amanda Abbington and others, voiced concerns over Pernice’s purported “threatening and abusive behaviour,” leading to a heated backlash.

Legal firm Carter-Ruck’s involvement further escalated the situation, with reports of “numerous serious complaints” prompting the BBC to address the media storm. Despite Pernice vehemently denying any wrongdoing, the corporation opted to sever ties with the decorated dancer, underscoring the severity of the situation.

The unfolding drama, which unfolded over an eight-month period, involved a series of accusations against Pernice, with figures like Debbie McGee and Georgia May Foote offering contrasting accounts of their partnerships with the embattled dancer. The controversy not only cast a shadow over the show’s prospects but also raised questions about the handling of such matters within the industry.

While Pernice’s departure marks a significant loss for Strictly Come Dancing, the show must soldier on, with a lineup of returning professional dancers such as Amy Dowden, Dianne Buswell, and Kai Widdrington gearing up for the milestone 20th season. The BBC’s swift action in addressing the situation reflects a commitment to upholding the integrity of the beloved show.
