Prima (UK) - - Get Dancing! -

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!
