Maura Higgins Finds Love After Recent Break Up
Maura Higgins is dating Strictly professional dancer Giovanni Pernice.
According to the Mail Online the Love Island star has been getting close to dancing dynamo Giovanni in secret.
The new romance follows her recent split from Chris Taylor in May.
And now sources close to the breakout star say the couple are in the early stages of a relationship.
Fans first suspected the two were an item earlier this month.
As they reportedly stayed at the same hotel in Cornwall.
Both Maura and Giovanni added fuel to the rumor mill when they were both separately spotted at the Italy v Austria Euros match over the weekend.
According to the Mail Online, the source said, “It's early days.
But, "Maura is really enjoying getting to know Giovanni, and the feeling is mutual.”

Former Dancing Partners
Giovanni is no stranger to dating fellow celebrities with ex-girlfriends including Pussycat Doll’s Ashley Roberts, Georgia May Foote, and even TOWIE's Jess Wright.
Of course, we all fell in love with Maura in 2019, when she coupled up with ballroom dancer Curtis Pritchard in the Love Island Villa.
Curtis was a professional dancer on Dancing with the Stars Ireland.
AJ Pritchard, his brother, is a former Strictly Come Dancing professional and recently tried his hand on I am a celebrity get me out of here.
Everything seems to be going in the right direction for Maura, her career has gone from strength to strength since exiting the villa.
Maura was just announced as the host of Glow Up Ireland on RTÉ.
The show will see amateur make-up artists compete to be crowned Ireland’s next make-up star.
The new gig will also mark Maura’s Irish TV presenting debut when it launches this autumn.
