Georgia May Foote talks heartbreak as Strictly gets under way

What a difference a year makes…

This time last year, former Corrie star Georgia May Foote was preparing to put her best foot forward in the Strictly Come Dancing ballroom, and her romance with Giovanni Pernice was just a twinkle in his eye.

But fast forward to the weekend that the 2016 version of the BBC contest launches, and Georgia has accepted that the fairytale is well and truly over.

She gave her Instagram snap the heartbreaking caption: “Fairytales arent real. Even if someone makes you think they are for a moment.”, as fans rushed to comment telling her how sad they were at news of her split from Giovanni.

A week ago, Georgia tweeted the news of their split.

She also pleaded with people to be nice about the sad time she was having.

She later added that even Strictly sparkle hadn’t saved their romance.

However, there were no hard feelings as Georgia still managed to wish the class of 2016 luck.
