Strictly’s Giovanni Pernice in new celeb romance after split from Maura Higgins

Strictly Come Dancing star Giovanni Pernice seems to have moved on from his ex-girlfriend, Love Island's Maura Higgins, as reports spiral around his new celebrity love interest.

The Strictly professional is reportedly dating a new celebrity after the tragic split, that comes just weeks after reports claiming that he was smitten with the Irish beauty from 2019's dating-come-reality show.

Giovanni, 31, is now rumoured to be dating stunning blonde beauty Verity Bowditch from Channel 4's reality programme Made In Chelsea.

Verity is 26 years old and first joined the cast of Made in Chelsea back in 2019, with the stunning star becoming a popular fixture among viewers of the reality programme.

The Sun has reported that Verity and Giovanni have met several times, with a source telling the publication that the Italian dancer has "fallen head over heels" for Verity following his split from Maura last month.

Giovanni has dated a string of famous faces, that have included ex-Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts, The Only Way Is Essex's Jess Wright, fellow dancing professional Luba Mushtuk, and former celebrity dance partner Georgia May Foote.

The Sun also revealed last month that Giovanni was using a dating app before his split with Maura Higgins.

In-love and smitten, the pair began dating earlier on in the year, with the couple going public in July 2021.

Both Maura and Giovanni posted loved-up PDA-filled snaps of each other on their social media accounts, while fans gushed over their love story – but all was not as it seemed.

Despite the couple even preparing to take their relationship to the next level by moving in together, and a source close to Giovanni telling The Sun: "Nobody would be surprised if they end up getting married because Giovanni has been saying she is the one he wants to be with forever."

Giovanni is currently competing on BBC One's Strictly Come Dancing.

The professional is paired up with EastEnders actress Rose Ayling-Ellis and the pair are firm favourites to lift the coveted Glitterball trophy this year.
