Jess Wright brands Strictly ex Giovanni Pernice ‘a piece of s**t’ in row at Pride Of Britain

Jess Wright was spotted locked in an explosive feud with her ex-boyfriend Giovanni Pernice after Monday night’s Pride Of Britain Awards. 

In footage obtained by The Mirror, the former TOWIE star is seen screaming at her Strictly star former flame in a shocking row which saw her brand him ‘a piece of s**t’, before she was heard saying: ‘You broke my heart, you lied to me’.

Their row comes days after the heartthrob was hit with claims that he is dating current Strictly star Ashley Roberts, with rumours reaching fever pitch about their blossoming romance on the show, where he is currently paired with Faye Tozer.

Furious: Jessica Wright was spotted locked in an explosive feud with her ex-boyfriend Giovanni Pernice after Monday night’s Pride Of Britain Awards

After making dazzling appearances along the red carpet, things seemed to take a downward turn later in the evening as they locked horns behind the scenes.

In the clips, while Giovanni and various others tried to diffuse the row, Jess raged: ‘I got in a cab and I never saw you again for six months, you’re talking s**t. You used me… Publicity, fame. No-one who loves someone drops them…

‘You’re jealous of everything. We were together six months, you never cared about me. I want to know why – you left me!’

Jess and Giovanni were first romantically linked in December when they were spotted on a date by eagle-eyed onlookers. The lovebirds enjoyed a cosy drink at Soho House before they went onto watch West End production Dream Girls.

An insider told The Sun: ‘It was obvious to everyone it was a date. They were talking really closely, leaning into each other.’

A close pal to Jess elaborated to the publication: ‘They’ve been on a few dates, but it’s early days. They met through her brother Mark’s Strictly connections from when he was on the show and they’re getting to know each other.’

In April however, things came to a crashing close when a source said: ‘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.’

Last week it was revealed Pussycat Dolls singer Ashley, 37, and Giovanni are dating after ‘really hitting it off’ on the BBC show.

The stars – who are not partnered together – are said to have ‘been on a string of secret dates’ and are now in the early stages of a new romance after sharing a kiss.

The ‘spark’ between the pair has not gone unnoticed between their co-stars and the Strictly crew, but the relationship is likely to raise eyebrows with Giovanni’s ex, former Coronation Street star Georgia May Foote, 27, who is a friend of Ashley’s.

Ashley even supported Georgia through the couple’s split in 2016 by taking her on a series of girls’ nights out.

A source told The Sun: ‘The spark between Ashley and Giovanni has become quite widely noticed among the crew – they just seem to really hit it off.

‘After the show each week they’ve been heading out for drinks together in London and just hanging out and looking very cosy.

‘It’s very early days but it looks like things are going well – and of course they’re both single so it’s all totally innocent fun.’
