Love Island’ s Maura Higgins, who confirmed her relationship with Strictly’s Giovanni Pernice on Instagram last week, has plans to follow in his footsteps. Maura hopes to waltz into the world of Strictly Come Dancing now she’s serious with Giovanni, sources have told new!.

The pair, who were recently spotted dancing together at Sapphires drag bar in Blackpool, are aiming high.

“They do really like each other, but friends think their relationship could also be a boost for both of their careers,” the source said. “Maura’s dream is to be on Strictly. She really likes Giovanni, but she also knows this relationship could benefit her. They’re both very ambitious.”

Maura took to her Instagram page during England’s semi-final victory over Denmark last Wednesday where she shared a loved-up snap of herself holding Giovanni’s hand during a romantic candlelit dinner for two.

She later posted a picture of them together, with the caption "I'm Yours", well and truly confirming their love. Smitten Giovanni also shared a snap of the couple.

“Maura and Giovanni have a lovely connection and they are getting on really well. Giovanni is very keen on her – she’s a beautiful girl,” our source added.

Dancer Giovanni is said to be moving fast, but our source claims Maura is being cautious and trying to take things slowly with the cheeky Sicilian.

Maura split recently from her fellow ITV2 dating show contestant Chris Taylor – a few months after announcing they were an item.

At the time she told fans on Instagram, “There is no wrongdoing on either side… we still love, care and respect each other deeply. There is no regret. Life is about taking chances.”


Maura and Giovanni, both 30, reportedly spent several nights together at a Blackpool hotel after it emerged that he’s already introduced her to the cast and crew of Him & Me, the show he’s starring in alongside Strictly judge Anton Du Beke. Maura was also spotted cheering on Giovanni at the show’s opening night.

Onlookers said the pair looked completely smitten with each other. We think we are going to be seeing far more of this couple both on – and off – screen.
