Maura Higgins & Giovanni Pernice

It looks like there's something going on between Love Island's Maura Higgins and Strictly Come Dancing's Giovanni Pernice.

They sparked romance rumours after they were both spotted at the Polurrian on the Lizard; a cliff-top hotel in the UK.

According to OK! Magazine, Giovanni was also spotted taking photos with fans outside the hotel.

This rumoured romance follows Maura's split from Chris Taylor last month.

They confirmed their romance in November last year following months of speculation they were dating.

In a statement on Instagram Stories, she said, 'We wanted to make this work but we realised we work better being friends.'

'Whilst I appreciate people may speculate or create false stories, this is the truth.'

'I wish Chris nothing but the best and I will always be one of his biggest supporters X'

In his statement, Chris insisted they are both still on, 'very good terms.'

He said they're both going through a very, 'tough time with this,' so he' asked for people to take any speculation with a, 'metric tonne of salt.'
