GIOVANNI Pernice will show off his Strictly Come Dancing talents in Bradford next year.

The professional dancer’s latest show This Is Me will be at St George’s Hall on April 13.

Giovanni, who has sold out previous tours, began touring This Is Me early this year but it was cut short due to coronavirus.

At the time he said on Instagram: “I’m so sorry to say that we have had to reschedule the remaining shows of the tour. We have to think of everyone’s health and wellbeing.

“Thank you to all of the amazing audiences we have had and apologies to those that haven’t seen the show yet. I hope we will be able to return soon.”

Giovanni has become a fan favourite on the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing since joining in 2015, and has reached the final three times, with Georgia May Foote, Debbie McGee, and Faye Tozer.

On the 2019 series Giovanni was partnered with Michelle Visage, who is a judge on the TV show RuPaul’s Drag Race, making it to Blackpool.

Giovanni said: “I dream about that trophy every night, you know, it’s what it means to you. I would love to sleep next to that trophy for the rest of my life! But seriously, I just feel very lucky to have been on the show for so long and to have had such great partners.”

In This Is Me, Giovanni promises to light up the stage with his cast of professional dancers, for his fifth year of touring.

A spokesman said: “With the Italian’s natural charm, combined with beautiful choreography perfectly complemented by a fabulous soundtrack, This Is Me pays homage to the music and dances that have inspired Giovanni’s career, from a competition dancer to one of the biggest names on the hit BBC show.”
