MEET MR PRIMA!
The name’s Prima, Graziano Di Prima
Strictly’s never shy to introduce a hunky professional. This year, we are very excited because one of the new arrivals is 24-year-old Graziano Di Prima from Sicily. And with that name, well, we had to meet him!
Welcome to the UK, Graziano! What a great surname you have. And, of course, named after Britain’s favourite magazine! Wow! So you named your magazine after me (flashes a cheeky smile)? I hope.
We think it’s a great name, but where does it come from? In Italian, Di Prima means ‘the first’. It’s funny, as on my mum’s side, the name is Migliore, which means ‘the best’. I’m the first and the best – let’s hope I prove it on Strictly!
We do, too! How are you feeling about the show? I’m excited, but nervous. Everyone has been so friendly. It’s like a big family.
We don’t want to be giving you the wrong idea about us Strictly
fans, but will the top be coming off? I’m not sure, but I think so.
Do you have a favourite dance?
I love the samba and the jive. I’ve been dancing since I was six, so
Strictly is a dream come true!
And we think you might just be our dream come true, Graziano!
