The model stepped out wearing the ring hours after the couple revealed they had welcomed a 'new addition' to their family - a Pomeranian puppy named Roxy - following their return from a romantic getaway.

The dancer and his girlfriend recently returned from a trip to Dubai and Portugal amid furore over his 'militant' training style, with the BBC forced to investigate 'serious workplace misconduct' after three of his partners sought legal help.

After jetting back to the UK, Molly was spotted out for the first time in London wearing a smart white blazer with a pair of leggings and knee-high black boots.

The blonde beauty held up her left hand to her face, revealing the simple gold band, which will no doubt leave fans questioning if their was a proposal on their getaway.

The sighting comes hours after Molly revealed her new pup on her Instagram page on Wednesday evening, suggesting they had other things on their mind than the impending prob into Giovanni's behaviour.

Alongside a snap of Giovanni cuddling the Pomeranian, Molly wrote: 'Meet Roxy'.

There was no reference to the current media storm Giovanni finds himself in, following claims that Strictly bosses are bracing themselves for yet more complaints from former contestants.

The BBC are reportedly scouring nine years of footage from Strictly professional Giovanni's training sessions, as the explosive show scandal continues to rumble on.

It's also claimed that Amanda Abbington - one of the three stars who have filed complaints against Giovanni - has vowed to leave 'nothing unsaid' in her meeting with investigators this week.

On Monday evening, industry colleague Korina Travis, who performed with Giovanni at private functions and has no association with Strictly, accused the Italian dancer of behaving questionably when they worked together.

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

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

Korina works for ballroom company Burn The Floor alongside numerous former Strictly Come Dancing professionals.

She was previously considered for a role on the BBC show in 2016 before producers opted for Chloe Hewitt.

Former Strictly contestants Abbington, Laura Whitmore and Ranvir Singh have all been critical in their review of Pernice's methods.

According to The Sun , several women who have danced with the Italian on Strictly are contemplating joining the three existing claimants in a Beeb investigation for 'serious workplace misconduct claims'.

A source disclosed that several former dance partners of Giovanni's have been communicating privately and suggested that even more names could come forward.

The source went on to say that the future is unclear for the professional dancer, who vehemently denies any claims of threatening or abusive behaviour and has vowed to 'clear his name.'

They revealed: 'Numerous celebrities, all former partners of Gio's, have been in contact with one another behind the scenes.

'Three women that we know of have come forward, and taken things a step further with legal action.

'But Carter Ruck, the prestigious firm acting on behalf of these stars, have quietly been speaking to one or two other potential claimants. In other words, more names could come out of the woodwork.'

The fresh claims come after he reportedly quit Strictly after the scrutiny became 'too much'.

Off the back of his departure, friends close to Amanda spoke about how she found the pro dancer 'abrasive' and would have to have 'crisis talks' with show bosses every week after being left in floods of tears at his 'tough' training method with claims it left her 'bruised '.

Amanda, who dramatically withdrew from last year's competition and was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder after the show, is said to have met with Laura and Ranvir, 46, earlier this year for an 'emotional summit' to 'compare notes' about their time working with him.

Giovanni shared a post to Instagram detailing that he was 'totally surprised' by the allegations, which he denies.

He said in a statement: 'You will be as surprised as I am that allegations have been made about my dance teaching methods in the media this week.

'Of course, I reject any suggestion of abusive or threatening behaviour, and I look forward to clearing my name.

'Those who have followed my journey on Strictly Come Dancing over the last decade will know that I am passionate and competitive. No-one is more ambitious for my dance partners than me.

'I have always striven to help them be the very best dancers they can be. This has always come from a place of love and wanting to win - for me and my dance partners.

'Thank you all once again for your continued love and support!'

In recent weeks, the professional dancer has come under fire for his 'militant' training style, with the BBC forced to investigate 'serious workplace misconduct claims'

Following his statement, Giovanni was dealt a fresh blow after friend and former Strictly dance partner Rose Ayling-Ellis was said to 'not be getting involved' while he fights 'to clear his name' amid a probe into his workplace conduct.

It was believed Giovanni was still on good terms with Rose, who he won Strictly Come Dancing with in 2021.

Now though, it's been claimed that Rose is 'shocked' by the allegations but 'believes what the others are saying'.

A source told The Sun : 'Rose is finding the whole situation really tough. She had a really great experience with Gio so is really shocked by it all.

'She of course believes what others are saying but she is just trying to not get involved. She won't be speaking about it publicly.'
