LOVE Island star Maura Higgins and Strictly dancer Giovanni Pernice are showbiz's hottest new couple.

The pair, who have long been rumoured to have been dating after popping up in the same places, are thought to be in the early stages of a relationship.

A source told the Mail: "It's early days, but Maura is really enjoying getting to know Giovanni, and the feeling is mutual.

"They're both career driven and ambitious, which are qualities they find really attractive in each other."

The pair are both no strangers to high-profile relationships – with Maura having dated Love Island co-stars Chris Taylor and Curtis Pritchard.

Giovanni meanwhile has exes including include former Corrie actress Georgia May Foote, Towie star Jessica Wright and Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts.

We told how Maura and Giovanni had again sparked romance rumours after they both shared photos from Italy's 2-1 win over Austria on Saturday.

Earlier this month, the Irish beauty and the Italian dancer were allegedly spotted by fans at the same hotel in Cornwall.

The Sun contacted Giovanni Pernice's rep for comment while a rep for Maura Higgins had no comment.

Last month Maura revealed she'd split up with boyfriend Chris Taylor but insisted she "still loves him".

The reality TV star, 30, broke the news on Instagram, telling fans they realised they were better off as friends.

Giovanni has made some big claims lately, saying he can have sex 150 times a week when he's in a relationship.

He said: "If I'm in a relationship, it depends on your partner – if your partner is busy, if you're tired, if you're on holiday, at home.

"You can have sex 150 times a week or once – you've just got to make it good."
