Sam admitted he was left ‘terrified’ by Graziano’s “beautiful” looks and the fact the star is taller and younger than him.
Chatting on the airwaves, the reality star said: “What a beautiful man as well… big muscles, about 6 foot 4, jacked and a year younger than me as well which is terrifying.”
He also revealed that he had known about the partnership for some time and he andhad begun to welcome Graziano into their own lives.
Sam added: “He came round for dinner with his lovely, beautiful wife not long ago – we made him spag bol – and we found out loads about him.
“He grew up in Sicily, he was a grape stomper – I think that’s what they call it!
“He put a roof over his parents head when he started dancing, he’s got the most amazing story, he’s the loveliest man.”
But the radio star went onto admit there was one detail that he struggled to shake from his mind.
Sam confessed that he though the Italian dancer looked like a less “haggard” version of his best mate, TOWIE lothario Pete Wicks.
He said: “What struck me though, all of these conversations we had, and it was quite deep chats, but what really struck me throughout the whole dinner was… he looks like Pete Wicks!
“He looks like my mate Pete just a bit better looking, a little bit less haggard to be fair!”
Zara is the first Love Island star to make it to the Strictly Come Dancing ballroom.
During the BBC contest’s launch show, she confessed to watching the show since she was a child and revealed that her ‘dreams had come true’ to now be a contestant.
