In conversation with Hello! Jowita joked, “I hope I get the call again, but it will feel weird not dancing with hamza. I hope you won’t be jealous.”
Hamza agreed, quipping, “I have to admit, I’ll be jealous. I’ll say, “That’s not how you do that elevator!”‘
He added: “She doesn’t get rid of me that easily. I’m planning a few things with Jowita; There will possibly be a couple of documentaries.’
Her humorous comments come after Jowita and Giovanni finally confirmed they are together on Sunday night as they left a cozy dinner together holding hands.

She was paired with a celebrity for the first time this year, while Giovanni has starred in the show since 2015.
A source told the publication: “She and Gio are the worst kept secret but they make a great couple.
“While both insisted they were single, the couple’s chemistry was ridiculous – and they were repeatedly caught making out in corridors. The crew even saw them kiss in the production office.
“They make a great couple though and have been quite inseparable for the past few weeks.

Jowita recently split from her longtime boyfriend, fellow dancer Michael Danilczuk.
Meanwhile, Jowita’s dance partner Hamza Yassin is said to have unfollowed her love interest Giovanni, claiming he is “devastated” by their relationship.
According to The Sun, Hamza had previously followed Giovanni until last week. MailOnline has reached out to their representatives for comment.

Jowita’s budding relationship with Giovanni was said to have been a blow to Hamza, who “fell head over heels in love with her”.
“Hamza and Jowita became very close and were quite touchy at times, obviously their closeness really helped when it came to winning the trophy,” a source told The Sun.
“But while Jowita keeps the world from him, she stayed away from anything romantic and kept him at a little distance.
“Once it was clear that she was involved with Giovanni, the reason for that became clear. But while Hamza wants her to be happy, he was quietly devastated.’
