Jess Wright is dating Giovanni Pernice.

The former "The Only Way is Essex" star has reportedly been hooking up with the "Strictly Come Dancing" professional, 27, for the past month in secret after they met through the brunette beauty's brother Mark Wright - who took part in the show in 2014 - and were even spotted watching the West End production "Dream Girls" together.

An onlooker told The Sun newspaper: "Giovanni was in the stalls bar and he bought two drinks, then Jess arrived. She was wearing all black, but it wasn't like she was hiding or anything. Giovanni was taking pictures with fans, but no-one seemed to notice Jess. She was really glammed up. It was obvious to everyone it was a date. They were talking really closely, leaning into each other. Their body language looked like they'd known each other for a while. They finished their drinks and went into the show and sat just behind me. They must have stepped out early as I didn't see them at the end."

And, although it's still early, the pair are said to be enjoying getting to know one another.

A source close to the 32-year-old beauty explained to the publication: "They've been on a few dates, but it's early days. They met through her brother Mark's "Strictly..." connections from when he was on the show and they're getting to know each other."

Giovanni's love life has been the hot topic of conversation as he was rumoured to be growing close to his dance partner Debbie McGee while doing "Strictly..." this year.

The 59-year-old magician assistant - who was married to Paul Daniels - said: "There's a magic that is happening. The other dancers take the mickey out of us. He really cares, he doesn't just care about me, he cares about everybody. He makes everyone feel special and that what's Paul used to do, and that's what I love about him."
