This is shocking!

The BBC are scrambling as accusations are coming out against one of their former professional dancers.

Giovanni Pernice is facing allegations of misconduct after another professional dancer accused of "horrendous" behaviour.

The ex-Strictly star has come under fire for having a "militant" training style, with 3 of his former celebrity partners, Amanda Abbington, Laura Whitmore, and Ranvir Singh, submitting formal complaints to the BBC.

Amanda, who dramatically withdrew from Strictly last year and was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder after the show, is said to have met with Laura and Ranvir earlier this year for an "emotional summit" to "compare notes" about their time working with him.

Now more recently, a professional dancer who hasn't been on Strictly but has worked with Giovanni in the past, has accused him of bad behaviour during their time together.

"I’ve known him for years as a fellow competitor and he has done horrendous things to me," Korina Travis said in a statement.

She added: "I will not speak about my experiences with him... I’ll leave it at that."

Giovanni has fought back against the claims of his "militant" training style from his 3 celebrity partners on Strictly before, but these fresh claims for Korina aren't looking good for him.

The Sun reports that the BBC are now scrambling to investigate these complaints and have instructed producers to scour hours of training footage.

Not a good look for the show  😬
