Perfect score: A relaxed looking Debbie McGee arrived for the live shoes on Saturday, after speaking out about the growing romance rumours between her and dance partner Giovanni

Looking sensational, Debbie was dazzling on Saturday as she slipped into a tight ensemble which made the most of her dancer’s figure. 

Dressing for comfort ahead of her performance, she sported a pair of pink leggings that showed off her age defying figure.

A pair of knee-high boots offered a sultry edge, while oversized shades pushed her hair back into a tight bun. 

Dragging a purple suitcase behind her, fans were left to wonder what elaborate and dramatic dress she would be turning out with this evening.

But the professionally trained ballet dancer told the Daily Express: ‘It’s absolutely great people think he fancies me. We have a chemistry, a great sense of humour, we both make each other laugh and that has brought us together.’

Debbie said she has a very special friendship with the dancer, and said that because people see them dancing such sexy routines they assume the relationship is that.

Adding: ‘The truth is we really like each other but it isn’t a love affair. We love each other, but we are not in love with each other. It’s just one of those very special friendships.

While in an interview with Bella magazine: ‘I absolutely adore him and I have no doubt that he adores me. We have a great working dance partnership and we really love each other as human beings.

‘So I can see why people want to say there is something going on. We have great chemistry and love dancing together. But there’s nothing going on.’ 

Giovanni meanwhile said: ‘I’ve got the winning partner, not just in this competition, but for the rest of my life. Debbie has to be the best person I’ve met in this country so far. She is just amazing.’
