Maura Higgins gives glimpse into cheeky relationship with Giovanni Pernice with fun clip
Maura Higgins gave fans a glimpse into her sweet relationship with Giovanni Pernice by sharing a clip of them together.
The Love Island alum took to her Instagram Stories to share a video of her boyfriend Giovanni wiping curry sauce all over her face.
Maura looked fed up but let the professional dancer continue with his sauce attack.
“Miss you @pernicegiovanni (this is curry sauce btw),” she captioned her post.
Earlier this month, rumours started swirling that Maura and Giovanni had been dating before they made it Instagram official.
Fans spotted that Giovanni was liking several of Maura’s Instagram posts.
Maura and Giovanni then made their romance Insta official after the Love Island star shared a snap of them holding hands.
They were pictured for the first time in June, hanging out at a Blackpool nightspot.
The duo were partying after Maura, 30, supported Giovanni, 30, at his Him & Me dance show with Anton Du Beke.
An onlooker said: “They looked totally smitten with each other.
“They were being very touchy-feely and had a smooch on the dancefloor.”
However, it was recently reported that she has some reservations about her relationship with Giovanni.
The reality star is said to be “going slow” with the dancer as she worries he’s a bit of a player.
She also isn’t looking for anything serious after her relationship with fellow Islander Chris Taylor recently came to an end, it had been claimed.
“Giovanni is smitten,” a source revealed. “He always fancied her and slid into her DMs. It’s very early days.”
“Maura is enjoying the attention and she thinks he’s so hot,” the source added.
“He’s really charming, but she is a little worried he might be a player,” the insider told OK! magazine.
The source continued: “She doesn’t want to get hurt, so she’s taking it slow. She’s enjoying single life so won’t rush into anything.”
Giovanni dated his Strictly partner Georgia May Foote in 2015 before briefly dating TOWIE star Jess Wright in 2019.
Then, a few years later, he began a relationship with Pussycat Dolls star Ashley Roberts, with the two staying together for a year.
