Maura Higgins ‘devastated’ as she splits from Strictly’s Giovanni Pernice after their four-month romance hits the rocks

IT appeared to be a match made in reality TV star heaven - but Maura Higgins and Giovanni Pernice have SPLIT.

Their romance hit the rocks days after moving in together and just four months after they started dating.

Now The Sun can reveal it's all over between Love Island stunner Maura and Strictly Come Dancing pro Giovanni.

A source said: "It's all over for now. Maura's absolutely devastated, it appears the Strictly curse has struck again.

"Pals are hoping that they can patch things up. But only time will tell whether they'll work things out as Giovanni is so busy.

"He's been focusing on Strictly, training his celeb partner Rose 24/7, and they've become really good friends. He's even been learning sign language from Rose, showing it off on social media.

"Maura's decided to take a step back and let him concentrate on the show."

A rep for Giovanni declined to comment on the split while reps for Maura did not respond.

It has come as a shock to fans who have been bombarded with soppy snaps from the pair promising their love would last "forever".

But Maura deleted all trace of her Strictly boyfriend and unfollowed him from Instagram.

Giovanni soon followed suit - sparking rumours the Strictly curse has struck once again.

Giovanni and Maura teased their romance for weeks before confirming they were an item in July.

It came just two months after Maura's split from her ex Christopher Taylor.

Giovanni wrote on Instagram: "You're mine" as he shared a picture of them nose to nose in a sweet embrace.

Their relationship appeared to go form nought to 100 - with sources telling The Sun: “Giovanni has never felt like this about anyone before."

There's been rumours he was planning to propose, as the pair told friends they'd found "the one".

The Sun reported earlier this month that the smitten duo wanted to take their relationship to the next stage and were looking for their very own love nest.

Giovanni is partnered with Rose Ayling-Ellis on Strictly Come Dancing and Maura has been a fervent cheerleader for the pair.

Maura took to her social media to wish her boyfriend and his dance partner Rose, 26, the "very best of luck" ahead of their first dance.

Alongside a photograph of the pair, she wrote: "The very best of luck to you both tonight. I know you will absolutely smash it."

However, Giovanni recently said he didn't know if he and Maura would be spending Christmas together.

He told OK!: "We don't know yet. We'll see how our schedules are looking because we're both very busy."
