However, during last night’s It Takes Two, the dancer suggested the rules should be applied to all the professionals.
“The thing is the music changed, so all of us when the music changed we went and put something different,” he explained to Zoe Ball. “Just to not annoy the people at home.
“But I’m going to respect the rules, as long as all of the others respect the rules as well.”
Presenter Zoe, 46, agreed: “’That’s a fair point. If you get penalised, everyone should be penalised.”
Giovanni went on to suggest that other contestants in the competition have taken the rules into their own hands and got away with it.
“Everybody has to respect the rules because it’s not possible to have lifting Tango,” he stressed. “It’s not possible to break the rules on the Quick Step, like someone did.”
