The professional dancer, 31, provided fans with a cheeky insight on social media which saw him working out with the Great British Bake Off winner.
Giovanni set his sights on the coveted Glitterball trophy for eight years, but thanks to actress Rose Ayling-Ellis, that accomplishment was ticked off his list in 2021 – and now he’s aiming for something new.
‘So just to let you know, by the end of the tour I’m going to look like this guy,’ he told fans via Instagram stories while turning to John.
‘Yeah you are,’ John replied.
‘He’s training me. Today is the first day but he’s got some muscles hasn’t he,’ added Giovanni.
The most recent series saw soap star Rose and partner Giovanni take home the prize after facing off against John and Johannes Radebe in a spectacular final.
The ballroom and Latin pro recently revealed that his parents are looking after the trophy for him.
During an interview on This Morning he said: ‘My mum and dad are massive fans, so I think it was the right thing to do. It’s there with them.
‘Hopefully there’ll be another one to come and I can keep it with me.’
The Strictly tour hits the road this month and will be bringing glitter and glamour to cities across the UK, starting in Birmingham.
The show will then travel to Manchester, Sheffield, Liverpool, Glasgow, Nottingham and London for 33 shows.
For the first time ever, the tour will include a British Sign Language interpreter in every venue.
The official Instagram account for the Strictly arena tour wrote: ‘BREAKING NEWS! We are delighted to announce that a registered BSL Interpreter will be provided for every venue and performance of the tour, making this the biggest ever BSL accessible arena tour in the UK.’
Strictly Come Dancing is available to stream on BBC iPlayer.
