Gianni Bianchi was a fake boyfriend for Val Lambert.
Val alienates her sister Diane Sugden and son Paul before leaving for Italy in September 2004. When she returns in December 2004 she says it is only for a Christmas visit. She brings along her much younger boyfriend, Gianni. She tells everyone they are going to get married, but the next day Gianni leaves. Val says he had dumped her because she was too old to have children. However, before Gianni leaves, Val gives him money, and Paul sees them. Val is forced to admit that she had made the whole thing up in order to get sympathy.
A character that appeared two weeks before Gianni, Enzo Bianchi, shares the same surname as Gianni. It was never revealed if these two characters were related.
