Strictly Come Dancing professional Graziano Di Prima has recalled his love story with fiancée Giada Lini.

The 27 year old, who recently shared the moment he found out he'd be on BBC show Strictly, told OK! Online he first met his stunning belle Giada in 2015 and he "felt love straight away."

He said: "I did a TV show in 2015 and my fiancee was one of the professional dancers and that’s how we met. I felt love straight away, literally straight away but she wasn’t aware of that.

"I tried with her for one year. We went around doing shows, after the TV show, and we were going out in Italy and I was trying to explain to her, but she wasn’t aware."

Graziano, who is currently starring Here Come The Boys, explained that some time went by where the pair were separated but this was when their romance started to flourish as the star believes Giada began to "miss him."

He continued: "After one year, I said to her 'look I’ve told you already what I feel about you.'

"I was asked to go to Miami for a show and I said to her ‘let’s go together please, let’s dance together.’


"She said she had another season of the show to do and she left me for six months and I always remind her of this. In those six months it was hard, and when I left she realised she was missing me."

The sweet pair would call each other all the time and talk a lot, Graziano explained, to keep in touch despite the distance.

However a fateful moment then bought the beautiful pair together when Graziano returned to Italy.

He continued: "I arrived in Rome and my phone didn’t work so I went to a phone shop and I called her and I said ‘I’m in Rome, let’s see each other' but she was busy teaching.

"I went out from the shop and she was in front of me."

Since, the sweet pair, who continue to wow their fan base with their dance routines, have got engaged and they are currently planning their wedding.

Amid the coronavirus pandemic however planning has become difficult, as Graziano told OK! Online.

"We’ve had to cancel the wedding twice and it’s crazy," the star said.

He continued: "When you think about your wedding you want to make it the best day ever, but obviously the wedding is not the main thing when the pandemic happened. It wasn’t the right moment with people suffering. This year, the conditions aren’t right.

"I’m from Italy and we’re going to do it in Sicily, and Giada’s family is in Venice and everyone needs to come to Sicily. We’ve been struggling because we also want my UK friends to join us but they can’t come to Sicily because of the ten days of quarantine.

“So we’re going to wait one more year.”
