Maura Higgins and her boyfriend Giovanni Pernice are reportedly moving in together.

The former Love Island star (30) was first linked to the Strictly Come Dancing professional (31) earlier this year following her split from her ex-boyfriend Chris Taylor.

The pair went public with their romance in July and have been loved up ever since, constantly sharing doting photos of each other on social media.

A source told the Daily Mail that things have become “serious very quickly” between the couple, who are ready to take the next step in their relationship by looking for a new pad together.

The insider revealed: “Things have become serious very quickly between Maura and Gio and they are now ready to move things up a level by getting their own place.

“They both lead incredibly busy lives and spend a lot of time on the road working - so having somewhere they can come back to and always be together is incredibly important.

“They have been talking about it and would like to start looking as soon as they can.”

Neither Maura nor Giovanni have confirmed the news just yet.

It comes after an insider told The Sun that Giovanni is absolutely “love-struck” by his Irish girlfriend, saying that Maura “comes before anything else” in the dancer’s life.

“None of his mates have seen him like this before and Maura has become really close to Giovanni's friends as well,” the source spilled.
