& # 39; It is the same every year. People always talk about dance experience, but it is completely different. They are really dedicated to the show. All celebs were fantastic! & # 39;

Just before Christmas it was reported that Ashley and Giovanni were planning to spend the holidays together, and the couple were hit together in Miami.

A source told The Sun: "This is a sign of how heavily Giovanni fell for Ashley during the three to four months that they worked together in close circles.

& # 39; But because of the stiff rehearsal and performance schedule of the show, they could not spend as much time together as they might have liked.

& # 39; So now that the show is over, they are almost inseparable. This means, among other things, that you do not want to be separated at Christmas, even if that means that Giovanni has to make a sacrifice. & # 39;
