While Giovanni might be single, Rose is happily loved up with her boyfriend called Sam, so the two Strictly champs are just good friends.
The EastEnders star has tried to keep her personal life out of the public eye, and could be the reason why Sam did not appear in the Strictly studio before the final.
The two have been together for around seven years.
In 2020, OK magazine reported on them spending their six year anniversary together.
Rose wrote: “Six years we’ve been together and I still don’t find you annoying”, in a sweet Instagram tribute to her boyfriend.
While Samuel, writing on social media said: “I still find you the most funniest, beautiful and super cool girlfriend I ever asked for."
“You are a true badass girlfriend.”
