HOLLY Willoughby has hinted that she would “love” to do Strictly Come Dancing as Giovanni Pernice told her she’d be the ‘perfect partner’.

The pro dancer appeared on today’s This Morning to discuss his latest stage show but couldn’t resist trying to persuade Holly to take part on the show.

And Holly seemed rather keen as she started by quizzing him on what makes a perfect partner.

She said: “Do you have a hit list of celebrities you would like to dance with?”

Her co-star Phillip Schofield pointed at her, as she admitted: “They keep saying in my ear ‘are they waiting for him to say you?’ – yes!”

She continued: “You know I love the show, I am a massive fan.”

The 37-year-old tried to suggest she isn’t a good enough dancer, but Phil told her: “I think you would be great on there.”

On the last series of Strictly, Giovanni danced with Michelle Visage but was disappointed when they lost their place in the show fairly early on.

Discussing what happened, he said: “Something happened with Vogue, we tried to do something different but it didn’t work and the people didn’t vote.”

He went on to say he doesn’t know if he will get a celeb partner this year, saying: “We wait for February or March, I would love to do it again. It is the best job as a dancer.”

In the meantime Gionvanni is gearing up for his own dance show – This Is Me.

Teasing what his fans can expect, he said: “On my show it is going to be all about me.

“This time I am going to do something different. I am going to show some secret talents and do something other than dancing.

“I love instruments –  that is a clue.”
