Maura Higgins’ boyfriend Giovanni Pernice has said he is missing her in a sweet Instagram post.

The former Love Island star and Strictly Come Dancing have been spending some time apart as Maura films her new RTÉ show Glow Up: Ireland’s Next Make-Up Star in Dublin.

Taking to Instagram to lament her absence, Giovanni shared a photo of the pair in Polurrian on the Lizard’s hotel pool from a recent stay in Cornwall.

The pair looked happy as ever as they posed together in the water in the throwback pic.

Captioning the post, the Italian dancer wrote: “Missing my babygirl ♥️ @maurahiggins."

Maura replied to her beau in the comments section saying, “Not long now baby,” while her best friend and fellow Love Islander Molly-Mae Hague showed her approval and wrote, “Very cute.”

The love birds sparked dating rumours following Maura’s split from her ex-boyfriend Chris Taylor and confirmed their relationship last month with a romantic Instagram post.

Recently, The Sun revealed that Giovanni had been interested in Maura for quite a while before making a move.

A source spilled: “They’ve met each other at events in the past and Giovanni has always fancied Maura.

“But it wasn’t until she became single that he made his move. Once they started texting, and then eventually meeting up, things quickly went from there. Maura has spent a couple of days with Gio and been staying with him while he’s on tour.

“But she’s now had to go away with work herself so they face spending a week or two apart which neither of them are looking forward to as they’ve become close really quickly.
