Maura Higgins has revealed that she received a romantic gift from a secret admirer today just weeks after splitting from Giovanni Pernice.

The former Love Island star and the Strictly Come Dancing professional called it quits on their relationship in October after confirming their romance in July.

After rumours emerged that the couple was no more, Giovanni issued a statement on his Instagram where he said that “great relationships with great people can come to a natural end.”

He said that “there was absolutely no wrongdoing” that caused the split and called for an end to any further speculation.

Maura was reportedly “utterly heartbroken” over the breakup but has been doing whatever she can to take her mind off things by going on multiple girls' nights out with her pals in the UK.

Now, it seems that the 30-year-old may be ready for another romance as she revealed today that a mystery suitor surprised her with a huge bouquet of red roses sent to her home.

It comes after Maura jetted home to Ireland from the UK to see her family this week for the first time since the beginning of the pandemic.

Maura shared a series of cute snaps with her niece and said she was happy to spend a “lovely few days” in the Emerald Isle.

Captioning a photo of the pair sticking their tongues out for the camera, she wrote: “Lovely few days in Ireland... always sad leaving this one.”
