Giovanni Pernice thinks Debbie McGee is the "best person he's met" in the UK.
The 'Strictly Come Dancing' professional has been getting cosy with the 59-year-old stage performer - who was married to the late Paul Daniels - over the past two months while training for the ballroom and latin show, and it seems she's had a lasting impact on the hunk as he's described her as his "winning partner" for the rest of his life.
Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, he 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."
His sweet words will no doubt hit a nerve with his ex-girlfriend Georgia May Foote - who he met on the show in 2015 - as they split last summer following eight months of dating.
Georgia said at the time: "I'm quite a private person so I just get on with life, I've always said that my job is the most important thing in my life and my family. My family are happy and healthy and I'm working on a great show.
"I've literally thrown myself into it completely. It's been such a great experience and I'm lucky that I've got it right now, I think, to do - to keep me busy. I just kind of get on with life, I don't really listen [to what's being said]."
And, although they are no longer together, Giovanni, 27, is still in contact with the brunette beauty and his partner from last year's show Laura Whitmore.
He said: "I'm still in touch with Georgia and Laura [Whitmore] as well. I mean you spend so much time with people, it's a shame just to finish everything ... like, you know."
Giovanni and Debbie set tongues wagging last month when she planted a smooch on the dark-haired dancer at the end of their routine - despite it not being choreographed.
