The stars of Strictly Come Dancing officially took to the dance floor in September 2021. Series 19 is well underway and, each week, the professional dancers and their celebrity partners are one step closer to the final which airs this December.
The show is often making headlines for its behind-the-scenes romances. But, it appears that one of the show’s professionals isn’t dating his dance partner this year, but a reality TV star, instead. Here’s more on Giovanni and Verity Bowditch’s relationship and their age difference explored.

Verity Bowditch age

Giovanni was born in Sicily, Italy on September 5th, 1990 making him 31 years old and six years older than Verity.
Besides MIC, it appears that Verity is also an entrepreneur as she launched a 100% plant-based restaurant called Clean Kitchen in 2020.
Meet Verity on Instagram
It looks like Verity and Giovanni have only just gone public with their relationship so things aren’t quite ‘Instagram official’ just yet.
Neither Verity nor Gio have posted photos together, or of each other, on the ‘gram at the time of writing.
Blonde bombshell Verity found reality TV fame back in 2019 on MIC, but judging by her IG account, she’s an avid pilates fan and is thoroughly into health and fitness.
