Now Giovanni, 33, has opened up about working with the actress and confessed: “It’s a shame because, in my opinion, she could have gone all the way.”

Speaking on the Mirror’s Invite Only podcast, he continued: “I am a perfectionist, 100%, but it comes from a perspective of caring.

“I think all of the professional dancers are in the same place.

“If you’re a professional dancer on one of these shows, you have to get these people looking the best they can on Saturday night.”

Last week it was reported that Amanda had dropped her complaint against Giovanni.

Insiders at the BBC told the Daily Mail that the matter was now considered “closed” and that they had “moved on”.

Despite the reports, a representative for the star later denied the claims.

The Sun told in January how former Sherlock star Amanda had demanded that show chiefs handed over the CCTV rehearsal footage of her and Giovanni.

“You make the most of their strengths so the only thing that’s constant is the fact that you have to do a show on Saturday night.”
