Giovanni Pernice left fans swooning on Tuesday after revealing his hidden piano-playing talent.
The Strictly Come Dancing star, 32, is renowned for his smooth moves on the dance floor, specialising in the Latin style.
But the talented dancer took to Instagram on Tuesday to reveal another talent, which he has been practising in his spare time.
As well as appearing on Strictly since 2015 – and notably winning the show in 2021 with EastEnders actress Rose Ayling-Ellis – Giovanni is a hidden whizz on the piano.
‘Alright! Take 1,676,’ Giovanni joked, before turning his attention to the keys, where he performed Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen.

His hands flew across the keyboard as he flawlessly played the opening bars of the iconic tune.
The multi-talented heartthrob had managed to squeeze in a quick practice between dance sessions as he captioned his post: ‘An hour spare in the dressing room’.
His fans were left swooning over his musical ability, with one saying ‘Is there anything he can’t do!’
Another commented: ‘This man,’ alongside a flame emoji, while another added: ‘A man of many talents!’
It comes after Giovanni admitted he sometimes gets ‘lonely’ being single after his split from fellow pro dancer Jowita Przystal last month.
The professional dancer was rumoured to be dating the reigning Strictly champion back in December before they called it quits over ‘hectic work schedules’.
Now Giovanni has opened up about his dating history and how difficult it is to find a partner while staying focussed on his career.
He made the rare confession on his brand-new BBC show, Anton and Giovanni’s Adventures in Sicily, on Tuesday.

As he cooked up a meal for him and Anton Du Beke, he got candid about his aspirations in life.
He said: ‘One day I will cook for my family.’
Anton replied: ‘Once you get a family, you will be doing it all the time.’
Giovanni then admitted: ‘My mum always says to me, “So, Giovanni, what’s the situation?” because obviously every time I date a girl, I always tell her and say “What do you think about this?”
Joking about the number of girlfriends he’s had he said: ‘Bless her, she’s seen so many passing by.’
Giovanni added: ‘But initially, she’s like: “Is she the one? You know, I want a baby before I pass way!” It’s all the time, constantly, it’s funny.
‘Of course I’ll have a family one day, you just have to find the right person first. Personally, I am just very focused on my career as you were at my age.’
He then confessed: ‘It does get lonely sometimes, it’s a tricky thing between – there’s a line, a fine line, between: ‘I want to be in a relationship and be with somebody because you get lonely’.

Calling it quits: The professional Strictly Come Dancing stars were reported to be dating back in December, but have allegedly fallen victim to ‘hectic work schedules’
‘But at the same time, you want to be free to be able to focus on your career. And also, this industry, quite tricky, as you know, because you always have to be focused.’
Jowita and Giovanni’s reported break-up came just days after the Italian dancer appeared to confirm his romance with Jowita during an interview slip-up, where he referred to them as ‘we’.
Despite attempting to say that he wasn’t going to discuss the romance rumours, Giovanni accidentally referred to himself and Jowita as one by saying: ‘We are not talking about anything’.
Sources allegedly confirmed the split to The Sun, sharing: ‘As time has passed they have found it increasingly difficult to build on their relationship because of their hectic work schedules.
‘Giovanni is on tour for the next five months and trying to make time for each other has proved absolutely impossible.
Continuing that things are civil, they added: ‘Although their relationship has ended Giovanni and Jowita said they will stay good friends. It is just a shame they couldn’t make it work.’
MailOnline contacted representatives for Giovanni and Jowita for comment at the time.
Reports of a relationship between the pair began to circulate in December, saying that the pair were the ‘worst kept secret’ at the BBC, and were even said to be kissing backstage at Strictly.
The couple were also left supportive comments on each other’s social media posts – before being snapped out together on Valentine’s Day last month.
It even appeared that Giovanni confirmed their romance during an interview with RadioTimes.
During the interview, Giovanni was asked about his relationship with his rumoured flame – but while attempting to move the conversation away from that topic – seemingly did the opposite.
He told the interviewer: ‘This was my New Year resolution. We are not talking about anything.’
Picking up on the subtleties of his response, the interviewer probed: ‘We, so there’s a we?’ to which he ‘smiles silently’.
Giovanni has previously dated actress Georgia May Foote, whom he was partnered with on his first season on Strictly in 2015.
He later dated former Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts between 2018 and 2020, before a brief romance with Love Island’s Maura Higgins in 2021.
