Maura Higgins and Giovanni Pernice have been pictured together for the first time with onlookers claiming the rumoured new couple were ‘touchy-feely’ with each other.

The Love Island star and Strictly Come Dancing pro are said to be a new couple and have been secretly dating for several weeks

Adding fuel to the dating speculation, Maura was spotted supporting Giovanni at the opening night of his dance tour, Him & Me, with Anton Du Beke in Blackpool. 

In photos obtained by The Sun, the pair could be seen standing with each other at the afterparty on Thursday. 

An eyewitness also claimed: ‘They looked totally smitten with each other.

‘They were being very touchy-feely and had a smooch on the dancefloor.’ 

Another source had previously told the MailOnline said: ‘Giovanni was so thrilled that Maura was in the audience for his opening night – and she loved seeing him in action.

Although Giovanni is working it’s been like a mini break for them, they’re staying at Blackpool’s The Big Blue Hotel, which has been a fun experience.’ 

The publication previously reported that the two were in the ‘early days’ of a relationship, and both were allegedly staying in the same hotel in Cornwall recently.

Fans began linking the two together after noticing Maura and Giovanni had shared photos on their Instagram Stories from Italy’s 2-1 win over Austria at the Wembley Stadium Euro 2020 match last Saturday, which suggested they were standing close to one another.

It comes after Irish reality star Maura ended her six-month relationship with Chris Taylor, who she began a belated romance with after meeting on the 2019 series of Love Island but leaving with other partners.

Maura had initially enjoyed a romance in the villa and afterwards with Curtis Pritchard, meaning she already had a potential link to Giovanni through Curtis’s older brother AJ, who was a pro on the long-running dance show alongside the Italian until the 2019 series.

Giovanni’s ex-flames include Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts and soap actress Georgia May Foote, both of whom he met through Strictly, with Georgia his celebrity partner for the 2015 series which saw them finish joint runners-up to Jay McGuiness and Aliona Vilani.
