Fans can’t wait to find out who’s paired up with tonight’s big launch show.
One thing we do know though, whoever is Giovanni Pernis’ celebrity partner, has been put through a grueling rehearsal by a pro dancer.
The 31-year-old Hunky star revealed the battered and bruised legs of her mysterious partner.
On Instagram, he shared the toes of his star dancer.
Giovanni – who has been on Strictly since 2015 – wrote in the short clip: “Welcome to Strictly Partner”.
Viewers will find out tonight who he has been linked with and it could be anyone from AJ Odudu to Katie McGlynn.
Meanwhile, it was recently revealed how Giovanni’s girlfriend Maura Higgins has “warned” him to be “respectful” before the new series.
The Love Island star, 30, is reportedly worried about what may hinder her new relationship in the upcoming season of the BBC dance competition.
It has already been revealed that the Irish beauty is the “horror”, who will be paired with her boyfriend this year.
To make matters worse, it was reported that the Boss was “desperate” to keep the Italian hunk with Corey star Katie – but it could risk upsetting Maura as they were romantically linked five years earlier.

The former Grid Girl reportedly “knows how flirtatious Giovanni can be”, but doesn’t want the rumors to start during her time on the show.
“She has said that getting close to him and dancing intimately is part and parcel of the show. But he told her that he just needed to respect her,” a source told New magazine.
“Dancing is one thing, but he must be aware of his behavior and make sure people know that she is his girlfriend.”
“She knows that rumors can swirl about Strictly Curse Strikingly — and she knows that viewers will keep a close eye on Giovanni and Katie’s chemistry and how close they seem.”
Maura has a right to be concerned as Giovanni has dated Strictly many guys over the years.
He hooked up with Georgia May Foote of Coronation Street in 2015, then began dating Ashley Roberts three years later.
He was also engaged to his partner Good Morning Britain presenter Ranveer Singh last year.
