He added a touch of flare to his get-up by wearing a rucksack with multi-coloured rainbows on the straps and he grinned as he hugged Harriet from behind.

Harriet looked stylish in a mustard skirt and orange jumper with a funky pattern which she wore over a white shirt.

She wore a pair of chunky heels and kicked her legs out to the side as she happily participated in Chris’s high jinks.

MailOnline has contacted a representative for Chris for comment.

Meanwhile, Maura shared a selection of loved-up snaps with her boyfriend Giovanni Pernice on Instagram on Wednesday. 

The Love Island star, 30, looked flawless in the picture as she sizzled in a plunging black lace trimmed playsuit while Giovanni looked on in passionate style. 

The doting post, in which Maura pointedly called Giovanni ‘my man’ comes after his ex-girlfriend Katie McGlynn joined the Strictly Come Dancing line up last week.

Maura recently followed Giovanni’s Coronation Street actress ex, 28, who became known for her role as Sinead Tinker, on Instagram.

Strictly bosses are reportedly eager to pair Giovanni and Katie, who were romantically involved 5 years ago, together for the competition. 

However, they know this could cause spell trouble for the professional dancer and his new Irish reality star girlfriend. 

An insider told The Sun: ‘This would be a dream ticket for Strictly producers, but a potential nightmare for the trio concerned.’

They continued: ‘The show’s bosses always strive to pair up pros and celebrities likely to have the most chemistry. In that respect, Giovanni and Katie are an obvious choice,

‘But they have to consider if that could have the knock-on effect of making life so difficult outside of the rehearsal studio that it might impact on their performances.’ 

MailOnline has contacted a Strictly representative for further comment. 

Katie and Giovanni were linked back in 2017 when it was reported that they’d enjoyed a night out with pals and ‘dinner and the cinema’ date.

Contestant: Giovanni ­was previously romantically linked to the actress (pictured) and there are fears it could create tension with his Maura  

However the Coronation Street actress later shut down speculation and denied they were dating. 

Maura and Giovanni first went public with their relationship at Sapphires, Blackpool’s Premier Drag Cabaret Show Bar at the beginning of July.

And he’s already introduced her to the cast and crew of the Him And Me show he’s starring in with new Strictly judge, Anton Du Beke.

A source told MailOnline: ‘Gio and Maura are very much a couple. Everyone know he’s played the field in the past but he is serious about Maura. 

‘He’s smitten with her, they’ve become close really quickly and are spending a lot of time together in Blackpool.

‘She’s become pals with all of the cast and crew of Him and Me too and they think she’s great. Maura has also met Anton and they got on brilliantly.’

Elsewhere Maura and Chris’s fellow Love Island stars Paige Turley, 24, and Finn Tapp, 21, put on a loved-up display as they posed for pictures while giving away free McFlurry’s as part of the Fancy A McDonald’s campaign on Thursday.

Paige looked stylish in a blue blazer which she wore over a white top to match her cropped trousers which were ripped at the knee.

She wore a pair of white heels and her long blonde hair rested on her shoulders with a hint of pink noticeable to the front.

Finn opted for a cream jumper over a white T-shirt which he teamed with a pair of black trousers and pristine trainers. 

The reality star had his beard neatly trimmed and had his hair freshly cut, sporting a slick fade to the side.

Love Island’s Sharon Gaffka is left ‘scared’ as a group of fans FOLLOW her home

Sharon Gaffka has spoken out about her new-found fame in an interview on FUBAR Radio with Bobby Norris and Stephen Leng. 

Speaking on Access All Areas on Thursday, the reality star, 25, revealed a group of fans had followed her home before messaging her on Instagram asking for a photo. 

The incident, which happened on Tuesday, seemed to have shaken the Love Island star up as she said: ‘There was a group of girls I’d walked past that were coming out of the train station. 

Candid: Sharon Gaffka, 25, spoke about her new-found fame in an interview on FUBAR Radio with Bobby Norris and Stephen Leng, and revealed fans have ‘followed her home’ 

‘They partially followed me home and messaged me on Instagram saying they were in a field near my house, being like, “where are you? We’re looking for you!” because they wanted to get a photo.’

Sharon revealed she appreciates the support from enthused fans of the hit reality show, but she explained that this was: ‘too close to [her] house for comfort.’   

The Oxford born star not only fears for own safety, but her family’s too: ‘My younger brother looks quite similar to me as well,’ she said. 

Scary: The incident, which happened on Tuesday, seemed to have shaken the Love Island star up 

Continuing on: ‘Because it’s a small town, if you know who I am, you’d know my brother. I just worry about him walking around as well, just as much as me.’  

The reality star sent a text to her younger brother to alert him about the fans hoping for a photo, saying: ‘be careful coming over to my house today because there’s very excitable teenagers outside somewhere!’

Elsewhere in the interview, Sharon gave her opinion on the current Love Island coupling Jake Cornish and Liberty Poole. 

Shaken up: She said in the interview: ‘They partially followed me home and messaged me on Instagram saying they were in a field near my house, being like, “where are you?”

The pair, who have been nick named ‘Jiberty’ have been going through a rough patch recently, and Jake, 24, has come under fire by fans for not being genuine and playing up to the cameras. 

Sharon insisted in the interview: ‘what you see on the camera is very different from what I’d seen of them together in person.’  

However, Thursday night’s episode will see Liberty, 21, break up with the water engineer in a shock revelation in the final few days of the show.

The Nando’s waitress removed the bracelet that he gifted to her, and cited: ‘I just don’t feel like you love me for me and I want someone who loves me for me’ as the reason for walking away from the relationship. 

The break up is a Love Island first, but the couple could go the distance and are still in with a chance of grabbing the £50,000 prize money. 

Also in the upcoming episode, Faye Winter will confess to trying to sabotage her relationship with Teddy Soares while discussing how they can move on from ‘s**t situations’ which have hindered them in the past.

‘I want someone who loves me for me’: On Thursday’s episode of Love Island Liberty will split from Jake after just four weeks

It’s all over: In a Love Island first, the couple, who made their seven-week long relationship official, have decided to go their separate ways ahead of the series finale on Monday 

In exclusive photos, the Devonshire beauty, 26, sits down with the financial consultant, 26, on an epic final date and addresses the hurdles they have faced.

Faye previously broke things off with Teddy in an explosives argument, after witnessing a clip where he called Clarisse Juliette ‘sexually attractive’ during his Casa Amour stay.  

While he was away at the other villa, she also questioned their connection and whether they share the same sense of humour.

However, love was very much in the air as she arrives at a rose petal-filled pool at a private venue with Teddy.   

Admitting she has struggled to show her vulnerable side, Faye says to the hunk: ‘I thought I just needed to stay on my own, and I wasn’t going to open up to you but it’s one of the best things I’ve ever done.

‘From there, we’ve had our ups and downs, more so my fault than yours. I was almost waiting for that opportunity for you to f**k up so I could run instead of falling for you.’

Teddy responds: ‘I knew, in the back of my mind, we needed it to realise how we can recover from s*** situations.’

And as the conversation continues, Teddy tells Faye there’s something ‘on the tip of his tongue,’ as he hints he is ready to declare his love or ask her to be his girlfriend.

Love Island continues on ITV2 at 9pm.

Dani Dyer’s shamed conman ex has been ordered to give up ‘bling’ clothing to repay money he scammed from two pensioners.

Sammy Kimmence, 25, was jailed last month for defrauding Peter Haynes, 81, and Peter Martin, 91, out of their life savings.

Earlier today a judge ordered the dad-of-one to hand back almost £55,000.

As part of this sum Kimmence was ordered to give up three pairs of designer trainers – a pair of Dior B22 sneakers, costing £825; a pair of Louis Vuitton Monogram runners costing £725; and Nike Jordan ‘Black Cat’ shoes costing £600.

The former stockbroker will also lose a Louis Vuitton monogram hoodie which cost £1,250, £1,000 Cartier love ring and £699 personalised numberplate reading ‘KM11SAM’.

Prosecutor Mike Mason told the Proceeds of Crime hearing that Kimmence made £54,859 conning his victims.

This included over £35,000 for the five charges, £13,800 in a bank account and just over £5000 of assets in his house.

Mr Mason added: “[The assets are] made up of a personalised numberplate, worth £699, and jewellery and clothing, making it up to £5,099.”

Judge Timothy Mousley QC added: “It is some shoes – the vast bulk are three pairs of trainers.”

Kimmence stood motionless in the dock at Portsmouth Crown Court while the hearing took place.

He wore a mask, navy blue jumper with dark tracksuit bottoms and spoke only to confirm his name.

Dani Dyer ex Sammy to appear in court this week before repaying £34,000 he stole

Dani Dyer wants to find 'nice normal man' after heartache with fraudster Sammy Kimmence

He was jailed for three-and-a-half years last month after posing as a financial investor to con the two men.

Kimmence claimed he was placing bets on horse races on their behalf but instead spent the money enjoying a lavish lifestyle.

He paid for nightclub and restaurant bills and booked a hotel in Ibiza.

Kimmence, who admitted five counts of fraud, is said to have left one of his victims ‘living on the breadline’.

He will begin repaying the debt by handing over the valuables described in court yesterday (THU).

Within three months he will also have to transfer £3,926 to the estate of the late Mr Martin and a further £1,173 to Mr Hayne.

The rest of the money will be paid back following his release from prison.

Simon Clark, CPS Wessex Senior Crown Prosecutor, said: “Kimmence acted despicably when he duped his former clients in to believing that he had set up a new company with which they could safely invest their money.

“The CPS used witness statements, financial records, receipts and mobile phone evidence to prove that Kimmence had not invested a single penny of the thousands of pounds he had fraudulently obtained from his victims.”

Kimmence announced the birth of he and Dyer’s baby son Santiago in January this year.

The 2018 Love Island winner, daughter of EastEnders star Danny Dyer, is understood to have left him following the court case.
