Maura Higgins was reportedly spotted cosying up to radio DJ Roman Kemp at a BRITs afterparty.

This year’s annual BRIT Awards ceremony took place last Tuesday at London’s O2 Arena.

According to The Sun, Maura and Roman – whose father is Spandau Ballet singer Martin Kemp – met at the show and then headed to Tom Grennan’s afterparty at The Orange Yard in Soho together with some pals in tow.

An onlooker told the publication that the pair were “glued to each other’s sides all night.”

The source said: “Everyone was talking about how Maura and Roman were flirting and all over each other during the bash.

“They were dancing together and laughing a lot, they seemed to be glued to each other’s sides all night.

“Maura has been unlucky in love lately, but hanging out with Roman seemed to put a smile back on her face.”

Roman’s rep told the outlet: “Roman and Maura are friends.”

It comes as Maura’s ex-boyfriend Giovanni Pernice was reportedly spotted kissing actor Emily Atack at an afterparty in The Box nightclub the very same night.

“Gio and Emily were snogging the faces off each other. Their hands were everywhere and they were absolutely loving it,” an insider told The Sun.

“He had been following her around the club and joined her on Maya Jama’s private table.

“Before long he had his arms draped over her on the dance floor where they kissed, and then held hands outside in the smoking area.

“There were also loads of raunchy performers on stage which they watched while cosying up together. It was more than flirty,” they added.

The Strictly Come Dancing star split from model Maura in October to concentrate on the BBC dance competition.

At the time, sources said that the model was “devastated” about the breakup as she believed Giovanni was the one.

Prior to her relationship with Giovanni, Maura dated her Love Island cast mates Curtis Pritchard and Chris Taylor.
