It comes as sources claimed the "Strictly curse" had struck again with the former couple, who were reported to have moved in together before their break-up.

Despite looking loved-up in their Instagram selfies, an insider claimed their romance had "hit the rocks" just days into their new journey, with Giovanni spending so much time in the training studio with Rose Ayling-Ellis it was causing friction between them.
"It's all over for now. Maura's absolutely devastated, it appears the Strictly curse has struck again," a source told The Sun.
"Pals are hoping that they can patch things up. But only time will tell whether they'll work things out as Giovanni is so busy.
"He's been focusing on Strictly, training his celeb partner Rose 24/7, and they've become really good friends. He's even been learning sign language from Rose, showing it off on social media."
