In an exclusive chat with The Sun, Graziano told us who he expects to see go all the way.
He said: “There are three couples. I think John and Johannes, Kai and AJ, and Giovanni and Rose. I think these could be the couples that could go all the way.”
However, picking the outright winner is just too difficult, he insists.
“I don’t know who’s going to win, that’s for sure,” he said.
McFly’s Tom Fletcher and prop partner Amy Dowden are another pairing he expects to keep progressing.
He added: “The level is so high this year. Anything can happen.”
Now in his fourth series as a Strictly pro, and second as a competitor, Graziano is thankful for getting the opportunity to meet Loose Women’s Judi.
Reflecting on their exit, he said: “In a way I feel bad because not having Judi around me every day laughing and spending time together.

“I think me and Judi found a way to enjoy as much as we can this Strictly journey. And I really miss her now. We’ve been calling each other every day.
“Since the first moment we tried to enjoy every second of it. This woman is something else, so special to me. That’s what strictly is about: make a connection with your celebrity and find a way to become a friend naturally.”
The pair packed their performances with fun including a sizzling samba that saw Judi twerk.
And despite being bed-bound with Covid the week before her exit, Judi returned to brighten up viewers’ nights with a colourful cha-cha.
Graziano said: “I feel happy this woman was able to dance, deliver her personality and have fun with me. When she had her speech in front of millions of people, I was crying and I didn’t want to. This woman, I love her so much.”
