Maura Higgins has appeared to call time on her brief rumoured romance with Strictly star Giovanni Pernice by unfollowing him on Instagram.

The move came just days after Giovanni showed his appreciation for the Love Island star by liking a recent steamy bikini photo of her on Instagram.

The pair started following each other on the social media site last month, sparking rumours of a flirtation. They further sparked speculation when they both appeared to stay at the same Cornish hotel for a mini break.

Maura shared a picture of the beautiful blue sky and view of the sea on her Instagram story with the caption: "Pretty."

Another guest, named Gail Muller, who stayed at the hotel, Polurrian on the Lizard, also shared a snap of a sunset as she wrote: "Ooh and finally finally you just never know who you'll spot at a place like @polurrianonthelizard!! I spotted two Love Islanders and a rather well known dancer.

"But I was much more into these views in the stunning Cornish weather," they added.

OK! approached Giovanni and Maura's representatives for comment.

Giovanni was also seen posing for pictures with fans outside of the beautiful hotel.

Maura has been enjoying the single life since her shock split from former Islander Christopher Taylor, spending time with her bestie Molly-Mae Hague.

Last month, the star and her ex boyfriend Curtis Pritchard came face to face in an "awkward" encounter at Thorpe Park.

The pair both attended the launch of the Black Mirror Labyrinth live experience but sources said they didn't acknowledge each other.

"Curtis was already in the VIP area with his brother AJ when Maura arrived with her friends," a source told OK!.

"Soon after Curtis and AJ left the area and walked right past Maura. They didn’t even acknowledge each other and it was all rather awkward."

They went on to say: "Maura glanced around at the pair before turning back to her friends and appearing to discuss her former boyfriend.

"Curtis and AJ later returned to the VIP area and Curtis and Maura were stood in the same group with other fellow Love Islanders like Danny Williams, but they weren’t talking to each other. It appears they haven’t remained on friendly terms at all.”
