Former The Only Way Is Essex star, Jess Wright has shared a sweet picture of herself kissing her Strictly Come Dancing beau, Giovanni Pernice. 

The couple have been rumoured to be dating for weeks, but finally came clean on Valentine’s Day when Georgia May Foote’s ex posted a loved up picture with his new TOWIE girlfriend. 

And now Jess has followed suit, proving to fans that their relationship has been going on a while, by sharing a throwback snap of herself and Giovanni sharing a kiss on New Year’s Eve.

Sharing the intimate picture with her 1.3m Instagram followers, Jess simply wrote: “#tbt #newyears,” followed by a red heart emoji. 

In the snap, the couple appeared to be laughing as they broke apart from a kiss. 

The pair were dressed for the New Year festivities, as Jess wore a red spotted blouse, with her brown locks flowing in loose curls behind her, and Giovanni wore a smart black suit and a tie.

Reacting to Jess’s first official post with her boyfriend, fans flooded to comment how happy they were for them both. 

“Omg didn’t know you were both a couple this is amazing,” one fan excitedly commented. 

While another added: “Wow, lovely couple. You kept that quiet, good for you. Saw Giovanni at Strictly on Sunday, he’s gorgeous. X”

The romantic snapshot comes after Jess hinted at her new relationship on her Instagram story earlier on Thursday, sharing a very loved-up photo of what appeared to be her and Giovanni holding hands. 

The picture saw Jess laying her arm on a sofa, while Italian dancer Giovanni grasped her hand, sporting a ring with his own initials on.

However, at The Pure Package Wellness Awards a week before, Ricky Rayment’s ex exclusively told OK! Online the reasons why she keeps her romances under wraps – before awkwardly squirming about her relationship with the dancing hunk. 

“I mean, it’s just. He’s a friend of mine. I can’t remember. I literally can’t remember. Friend of a friend you know,” she said when asked if they were an item, before giggling into her hand.
