Maura Higgins is set to take a holiday by herself as she wants to heal her broken heart after her split from Strictly’s Giovanni Pernice
Love Island’s Maura Higgins is reportedly planning a ‘heartbreak holiday’ in a bid to heal her broken heart after splitting from Strictly star Giovanni Pernice.
The 30-year-old reality TV personality recently split from the Italian hunk, shortly after they started dating in June.
Now, a source says single Maura hopes to stop “moping around at home” and plans to fly out to somewhere new as she tries to remain positive about the situation.
“Maura was totally gutted about their break-up and it was a bitter blow,” they told New magazine.
“But she’s a beautiful girl and she’s used to getting a lot of attention. She definitely won’t be short of offers.

“She’s planning a holiday to try to forget about it. Unfortunately, she knows that no matter where you are in the world, your mindset still stays the same. But she’s trying to stay positive and she hopes that a change of scenery might do her a bit of good.”
It’s claimed Giovanni dumped Love Island star Maura after just a few weeks of dating as he feared she risked ruining his chances of winning Strictly Come Dancing.
The 31-year-old professional dancer has been paired with EastEnders actress Rose Ayling-Ellis, 26, for the 2021 series of the hit BBC show – with the actress being the first ever deaf star on Strictly.
A source told the publication: “Giovanni is taking this really seriously. He’s got a great relationship with Rose. They are doing incredibly well and getting so much love.
“Nobody understands what Strictly is like – it’s such hard work. All your time is taken up and Maura wasn’t given any time by Giovanni.
“You’re not allowed many people in the studio and she wasn’t given an invite. The writing was on the wall.”
The source also made it clear that it was Giovanni who dumped unlucky-in-love Maura.
They said: “Giovannis is so into it this year – he thinks this is his chance to win Strictly. He’s got such an amazing chemistry with Rose, and Maura couldn’t handle it.
“He didn’t want anything ruining it and the split has come from him, not her.”
The Mirror has contacted Maura’s representative for a comment.
