Fears Strictly pro will be axed after backing Giovanni Pernice as she escapes scandal on holiday

STRICTLY Come Dancing fans fear one show professional will be axed after backing under-fire Giovanni Pernice.

The Italian, 33, is being investigated by the BBC after three of his former celebrity partners made complaints about his conduct on the long-running series.

Giovanni has denied the claims in a statement and yesterday, The Sun exclusively reported how he has hired top lawyers in an attempt to clear his name.

Last week, The Sun revealed Giovanni had quit Strictly after nine successful years on the programme.

Now Strictly Come Dancing fans are worried Lauren Oakley, 33 – who is currently escaping the drama on a sun-soaked holiday – will face the chop.

Although Lauren has had only one celebrity partner on the main series – this being Channel 4 News host Krishnan Guru-Murthy – she was also part of the wider group of professionals in 2022.
