The Strictly Come Dancing star and the former Love Island contestant, 30, recently separated just four months after embarking on a relationship.

Taking to Instagram, Giovanni insisted that sometimes ‘great relationships with great people can come to a natural end’ which is what happened with him and Maura.

‘Hey guys – I hope everyone had a great Monday. Going into another wonderful training week – thank you so much for your amazing messages & your support this weekend. 

‘I get to live my dream every single day because of you – so thank you, thank you, thank you. I wanted to say a couple of things…

‘Firstly, great relationships with great people can come to a natural end. This has been the case for me recently. There was absolutely no wrong-doing and this should be the end of any speculation.

‘Whilst I respect and understand interest in my personal life, wouldn’t it be fantastic to instead use this space to raise awareness of subjects and issues which need the attention.

‘My eyes have been opened to so many things during my career. But I am learning so much from this series of Strictly.

‘The show has highlighted many important conversations for different communities and increased representation.

‘These are the conversations which deserve the time, energy and recognition. We must concentrate on what’s important and how we can all make a difference in life. Gio x’.

It comes after Giovanni blasted claims he was using a dating app while he was still dating Maura.

Insiders told The Sun, Giovanni was active on celebrity dating app Raya as late as October 5th, before his split with the Irish beauty was confirmed.

Despite the allegations, a representative for the star told MailOnline: ‘Giovanni became member of Raya years ago and his original profile remained on the site. He categorically was not using Raya whilst in a relationship.’

The romance between the pair reportedly went sour after days of moving in together with the Irish beauty is said to be ‘absolutely devastated.’

A source told The Sun: ‘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 actress Rose Ayling-Ellis through her paces on this year’s 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.

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 24 in a carousel advertisement post, where the two look as loved up as ever as they embrace one another.

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

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.

A source said: ‘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.’

Maura shot to fame on the dating show, entering the Villa as a bombshell.

The beauty coupled up with Curtis Pritchard following his split with Amy Hart on the show.

The former couple were together for around eight months after exiting the villa before she grew close to fellow Islander Chris Taylor.

Chris and Maura made things official last year before eventually splitting earlier this year.

Giovanni, meanwhile, has previously been linked with TOWIE star Jess Wright, Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts and Coronation Street’s Georgia May Foote.

He was also rumoured to be romantically connected to Hollyoaks star Katie McGlynn, who also starred on this year’s Strictly.
