She reposted a tweet with the headline:

'Maura Higgins and Joey Essex 'smitten' after secret dates before public snog.'

In her caption, the Longford native simply wrote, 'More rubbish.'

Her words came shortly after a source told OK! Magazine that the pair are mad about each other.

'He’s smitten with her – and she’s smitten with him. They were secretly seeing each other before the awards and feel they’ve met their soulmates.'

'They couldn’t take their eyes off each other that night and couldn’t hide their feelings.'

It was also reported that Maura's ex Giovanni Pernice was, 'in a huff,' when he saw her with Joey at the awards.

A rep for the dancer however, denied these allegations, calling them, 'totally untrue.'

'Gio enjoyed his evening celebrating with friends and colleagues. He had a brilliant evening at the Pride of Britain and loved meeting the winners and heroes on the night.'
