Since confirming their romance on Instagram this month, Maura Higgins and Giovanni Pernice have been giving fans further insight into their relationship. The Strictly Come Dancing pro and Love Island star fuelled dating rumours last month, and have only just confirmed their romance.

Over the weekend, the couple recreated a famous scene from The Lion King in a sweet social media video. The brunette beauty was seen smiling, while the professional dancer covered her face with curry sauce. He simply said, "Simba". Since then, the lovebirds have been posting sweet love notes on their accounts.

They first sparked romance rumours after they both appeared to stay at the same Cornish hotel for a mini-break in June. Earlier this year, Maura parted ways from fellow Love Islander Chris Taylor, who she dated for six months.
