Jessica Wright splits from Giovanni Pernice
Jessica Wright and Giovanni Pernice have called time on their relationship.
The former The Only Way is Essex star and her Strictly Come Dancing beau have decided to part ways after only five months of dating.
According to The Sun, the relationship faltered because Pernice was unable to cope with Wright’s fame.
A source said: “He was really into Jess and did want to make a go of it, but he struggled with the attention she gets and her popularity.
“They’ve tried to keep things amicable and told people they have both agreed to go their separate ways, but he was the one who first suggested things were going to end.”
Wright was allegedly “really upset” by the breakup.
The source continued: “She has been really upset by this. It’s a real shame but hopefully things will stay civil.”
The news comes shortly after Pernice admitted to the Sun that he wanted to settle down and have children, but not for a while.
He said: “Of course I want to settle, darling, I’m Italian. I want to have a big family, it’s just not the time.
“I’m 27 years old — I really want to dance has much as I can.”
