Giovanni and Maura split in October 2021

Before his alleged romance with Jowita, Giovanni was in a relationship with Love Island star Maura Higgins. The couple parted ways in October 2021 after dating for four months. 

Announcing the news of their split, Giovanni penned on social media: "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." The two were first linked back in June when they were spotted watching the Euro 2021 match at Wembley together.

Before the couple parted ways, Giovanni gushed about Maura in an interview with HELLO!. He said: "Maura is beautiful, funny, and she's a very loyal person," he gushed. "We get along very well, we're just enjoying getting to know each other."
