A source, speaking to the news outlet, said: “Giovanni and Anton had conversations about another travel show and had discussed where they could go next after their trips to Sicily and Spain.

“But Giovanni has now been told this won’t be happening and there will not be another series.

“It’s embarrassing because he’d actively hinted about getting another run but all discussions are off and he’s been told the show is on the scrap heap now.”

Anton and Giovanni's representatives and the BBC have both been approached for comment by The Mirror.

Giovanni Pernice denies 'abusive behaviour' on Strictly Come Dancing

The news comes just days after Pernice was forced to deny allegations that he displayed “abusive or threatening behaviour” while working as a professional dancer on Strictly Come Dancing.

It has been reported the BBC is looking into three separate complaints about his conduct on the show.

A legal firm acting on behalf of the complainants said the broadcaster is “evidence gathering” but the BBC has not confirmed any probe has begun.

The 33-year-old released a statement on Instagram on Sunday (May 19) rejecting claims of any "abusive or threatening behaviour".

In the statement, Pernice said: "To my dear fans, You will be as surprised as I am that allegations have been made about my dance teaching methods in the media this week.
"Of course, I reject any suggestion of abusive or threatening behaviour, and I look forward to clearing my name.
"Those who have followed my journey on Strictly Come Dancing over the last decade will know that I am passionate and competitive. No-one is more ambitious for my dance partners than me.
"I have always striven to help them be the very best dancers they can be. This has always come from a place of love and wanting to win - for me and my dance partners.
"Thank you all once again for your continued love and support! Giovanni."


The professional dancer's most recent partner on Strictly 2023, Sherlock actress Amanda Abbington, left the BBC ballroom show early, citing "medical reasons".

Amid these allegations, The Sun claims Pernice has quit Strictly. 

Although neither the BBC nor Pernice have confirmed his departure.
