Giovanni Pernice has been robbed by muggers who blinded him with pepper spray.
Two masked attackers grabbed his watch and rucksack as the 29-year-old clasped his hands to his face in Epping, Essex.
Giovanni was reportedly treated at the scene by paramedics, and thankfully is suspected to have suffered no long-term physical damage. Police are currently investigating the August incident, the newspaper reports.
Giovanni nor his girlfriend Ashley Roberts have commented on the incident.
Unfortunately, there have been a string of nightlife attacks linked to Strictly Come Dancing in recent years. Gorka Marquez was targeted in Blackpool in November 2016 in an attack so severe that he had to undergo emergency dental surgery.
Then, current Strictly pro AJ Pritchard was caught up in a scuffle trying to save his Love Island star brother Curtis at a nightclub in Nantwich, Cheshire last year.
