They explained: ‘Maura was upset that things ended with Giovanni but she’s young, gorgeous and has absolutely no intention of doing a Bridget Jones and locking herself away for weeks sobbing her heart out.’

They said: ‘She still firmly believes there is a guy out there for her. And whoever does end up with Maura will be very lucky.’

The holiday plans come as it was reported earlier this week that Maura may also be keeping busy by entering the I’m A Celebrity castle in North Wales. 

According to The Sun, the 30-year-old reality star began to organise the major booking after her split from Gio.  

A Ladbroke representative told the paper: ‘With her ex-Giovanni making all the headlines on Strictly, a stint on I’m A Celebrity would be the perfect opportunity for Maura to create her own.’

The move comes after it was reported that Giovanni ‘blindsided’ Maura with their split, leaving her ‘utterly heartbroken’ after revealing he ‘didn’t want to settle down’.

A source told The Sun on Tuesday that Giovanni dumped Maura two weeks ago unexpectedly as he doesn’t want to settle down.

The insider said: ‘Maura didn’t see this coming and is finding it very difficult to come to terms with. She genuinely thought Gio was the one.’

The pair are believed to have split two weeks ago after heart-to-heart talks where they spoke about how their packed schedules stopped them from seeing each other.

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 his partner Rose Ayling-Ellis 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.

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