Maura Higgins sparks new romance rumours with mystery gift after Giovanni Pernice split

Love Island star Maura Higgins is fresh from a four-month relationship with Strictly Come Dancing star Giovanni Pernice, 31.

Yet while the Irish reality star and presenter and Italian dancer may no longer be together, it seems someone is spoiling Maura.

The 30-year-old has retreated to Ireland following the breakup, where she is spending time with her family to help her get over it.

And it seems she has a secret admirer, with Maura greeted by a beautiful, large bouquet of red roses.

The beauty took to Instagram stories to share a photo of the stunning flowers with her 3.3 million followers with the caption: “To whoever sent me these… Wow. Thank you.”


Fans of Maura, who now presents Glow Up Ireland, eagerly discussed who the secret admirer could be, suspecting that there could be a new boyfriend on the scene. One said: “Looks like Maura has a new guy. Friends don’t sent red roses”.

Another commented: “Who wouldn’t be sending that stunner roses? She won’t be single for long.”

And a third added: “Maura deserves the world. She is a goddess.”

Giovanni released a statement on Instagram in October stating: “I wanted to say a couple of things. Firstly, great relationships with great people can come to a natural end.

“This has been the case for me recently. There was absolutely no wrong-doing and this should be the end of any speculation.”

Sources have recently told new! that Giovanni issued the statement after the break-up became public knowledge. A source told the magazine: “Giovanni was the one who ended things, so he put out a statement to try and make it better.

“Maura has taken the split quite badly and she was quite hurt by it all. It was painful for her, so he wanted to write a public post. It was his way of saying ‘Let’s stop talking about it now and leave it.’

They continued: “Giovanni is so busy with Strictly and the show is a big commitment so, sadly, he just couldn’t give her his time.”

The pair first went public with their relationship when they were spotted at a football match together in June, with their romance lasting four months.
