Strictly fans were in for a treat this evening as Giovanni Pernice showed off his unbelievably ripped stomach.

Twitter lit up with thirsty comments as Giovanni took to the floor with celeb partner Ranvir Singh.

And although they're dance didn't put them on top of the leaderboard like last week, it was still a major talking point.

"Omfg I just can't cope with how hot #Giovanni looks tonight #strictly," one gushed, "I mean he always looks gorgeous but tonight sooooooooo fit."

Another fawned: "Looked at Giovanni……only ONE place I'm looking!!!"

"I don't know how Ranvir focuses because lorrrdddd Giovanni is something else!!" a third joked.

Tonight's show is unique as it marks the first of the series without the history-making couple of Nicola Adams and Katya Jones.

Both Olympic boxing champ Nicola and pro dancer Katya are isolating after the latter tested positive for Covid-19.

And despite Nicola's negative test, she's sticking to the rules and isolating for 14 days having been in close contact with Katya.

Judge Motsi Mabuse is also missing after she was forced to make an "urgent" dash to Germany.

As she isolates, veteran pro Anton du Beke – who was the first to be eliminated from the series with celeb partner Jacqui Smith – has filled in her seat and taken on judging duties.

Nicola updated fans yesterday, telling them: "I just wanted to say thank-you for the lovely messages and the support, it's been unbelievable and I did not expect such a nice response.

"It's completely blown me away. I've never received so much love from people that I don't even know and it really hit home to me, what this journey meant.

"Not just to me but to everybody else as well."

Nicola added: "And I just want you to know that regardless of the situation I will continue to break boundaries and make changes and continue fighting for what's right and, just thank-you for having my back and being there when I needed you."
