Giovanni serenading Rose comes after it was reported he and Maura ended their four-month relationship on Monday.  

The romance between the Love Island star and the Strictly Come Dancing pro went sour after days of moving in together. 

According to The Sun, the Irish beauty is said to be ‘absolutely devastated.’

A source said: ‘It’s all over for now. Maura’s absolutely devastated, it appears the Strictly curse has struck again.

‘Pals are hoping that they can patch things up. But only time will tell whether they’ll work things out as Giovanni is so busy.’

The Italian dancer has been putting Rose through her paces on Strictly and they have become good friends, with Giovanni showcasing the sign language he’s learned from her on social media.

‘Maura’s decided to take a step back and let him concentrate on the show,’ the source concluded. 

MailOnline has contacted representatives for Maura and Giovanni for comment.       

The news of the split closely follows Monday’s reports that Maura had deleted almost all of the photos of Giovanni from her Instagram page, which led to rumours that the pair had broken up. 

The Glow Up Ireland host last posted a photo with the dancer on September 24th in a carousel advertisement post, where the two look as loved up as ever as they embrace one another.  

Giovanni has also deleted the reality star from his page without a trace.

The reported end of their whirlwind romance may be as a result of the Strictly curse, which sees celebrities splitting with their romantic partners while on the show, or shortly after.  

Many viewers have commented that Giovanni and EastEnders actress Rose would be ‘cute’ together. 

But there is nothing to suggest they are anything more than just friends.

Victims of the so-called ‘curse’ have included Stacey Dooley, Susanna Reid and Sean Walsh.

Maura posted to Instagram earlier this week a video from inside her London apartment expressing her joy of it ‘finally’ being ‘moving day’ leading fans to speculate she was moving in with the hunk.

An insider revealed to MailOnline earlier this month that ‘things have become serious very quickly’ between the pair.
