Strictly Come Dancing contestant Debbie McGee leaves viewers in awe of her dance moves week after week, but it seems that someone in particular is envious of her for another reason.
Giovanni Pernice's "secret lover" is reportedly "jealous" of Debbie McGee and the special bond that the Strictly celebrity has with her professional dance partner.
Professional dancer Luba Mushtuk has been extremely close to Giovanni for years, and danced with him on his previous tour.
In fact, the stunning brunette beauty regularly declaring her "love" for hunky Giovanni on social media.
But according to a Strictly source, 27 year old Giovanni's relationship with 59 year old Debbie on the BBC One dance show has struck a nerve with Luba.
"Luba and Giovanni are together. But she doesn’t like Debbie because of their bond — she feels how much Gio cares for her", claims a Strictly source.

The handsome dancer and Paul Daniels' widow were recently pictured sharing a kiss after dinner together during rehearsals, fueling romance rumours between the pair.
Luba is apparently keen for her "secret romance" with Giovanni to no longer be kept under wraps.
"It’s also upsetting as she would like their romance to be out in the open", the source told The Sun.
Adding salt to the wound, Luba is regularly forced to witness Giovanni and Debbie growing closer right in front of her eyes.
"She assists with choreography. But that means she has to spend a lot of time watching Giovanni rehearse with Debbie which can be uncomfortable for her" the insider told the newspaper.
These latest revelations comes as news emerged that Debbie McGee may be forced to pull out of the show this weekend as the cast head to Blackpool.
