Maura Higgins sparks reunion rumours with Giovanni Pernice as she re-follows him

Maura Higgins and Giovanni Pernice have sparked rumours they may have reunited after it was reported they had split.

Love Island star Maura, 31, and Strictly Come Dancing pro Giovanni, also 31, sparked split rumours earlier this week when the pair deleted their PDA-packed couples snaps from their Instagram pages and unfollowed one another, too.

Now, following reports Maura was left "devastated" after the apparent split, Maura and Giovanni have sparked rumours of a possible reunion as Maura has re-followed Giovanni on Instagram.

Meanwhile, a quick check on who Giovanni is following by OK! and it appears the dancer is also following the Irish beauty, who is rumoured to have signed up for I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!, once again.

It comes after claims Maura "couldn't handle" Giovanni's "amazing bond" with his dance partner on the show.

Giovanni is currently paired with EastEnders star Rose Ayling-Ellis on the series. The pair's growing friendship on the show is clear for viewers to see as Giovanni and Rose post hilarious videos on their social media pages.

And dancer Giovanni recently showed off the sign language he is learning for his deaf dance partner Rose, who recently said dancing with the hunk brings out her sexy side.

A source revealed to OK!: "Giovanni is taking Strictly really seriously and he’s got a great relationship with Rose.


"They are doing so enormously well and are getting so much love from the public."

The source continued: "Strictly is such hard work and all your time is taken up with the show, so Maura wasn’t given much of his time. Sadly, the writing was written on the wall.

"Giovanni wants to win the show. He’s got such an amazing bond with Rose and Maura couldn’t handle it."

Giovanni previously told OK! that Maura "loved" Rose, 26, who has been in a relationship with her boyfriend Sam for over seven years.

“Maura’s been very supportive. She’s the one I go home to, there’s a dinner ready and I have someone to talk to. She loves Rose as well,” he admitted.

Opening up about working with the EastEnders actress, who is the show’s first deaf contestant, he added: "It’s a privilege to be dancing with her.

"She’s such a lovely girl and she’s made me push myself even more and change the way I teach.

"We’re just constantly learning and finding our own way. We’ve reached a point where we don’t even need the interpreter any more. The more time we spend together, the better it gets.

"When I heard Rose was going to be on the show I really wanted her as my partner. She keeps saying she’s grateful to be dancing with me, but I’m the grateful one!"
