Maura Higgins has shared some photos from a romantic getaway with her boyfriend Giovanni Pernice for his birthday.

The Strictly Come Dancing pro celebrated his 31st birthday on Sunday and the couple are finally getting the chance to celebrate.

Maura organised a stay at the luxurious Corinthia Hotel in London, where the pair made use of the spa facilities together before the Longford lady surprised her beau with an ornate balloon display in their room, which Maura described as “amazing” and “incredible”.

The former Love Island star took to Instagram this morning to share some snaps from their hotel break, starting with a mirror selfie of the loved-up couple donning their hotel robes, which she captioned: “This morning.”

She then posted a picture of their delicious hotel breakfast consisting of avocados and poached eggs on toast, crepes, pastries, a bowl of fresh fruit, and some orange juice.

Over on his own Instagram, Giovanni shared a gorgeous black and white photo of the pair cuddling in bed with Maura’s cute teddy.

“Back with you,” he wrote, before sharing a video of the black and gold balloon arrangement with flowers and champagne that his girlfriend had organised for him.

The birthday boy tagged Maura in the video and said: “You are the best.”

Sharing a series of photos of the couple, including one of Maura and Giovanni cuddling on the sofa and another of the pair standing in front of the sea, she said: “Happy Birthday to the man who makes me feel beautiful and loved every single day, you make my world complete. I love you.”
