The duo were partying after Maura, 30, supported Giovanni, 30, at his Him & Me dance show with Anton Du Beke.

An onlooker said: “They looked totally smitten with each other.

“They were being very touchy-feely and had a smooch on the dancefloor."

However, it was recently reported that she has some reservations about her relationship with Giovanni.

The reality star is said to be "going slow" with the dancer as she worries he's a bit of a player.

She also isn't looking for anything serious after her relationship with fellow Islander Chris Taylor recently came to an end, it had been claimed.

"Giovanni is smitten," a source revealed. "He always fancied her and slid into her DMs. It's very early days."

"Maura is enjoying the attention and she thinks he's so hot," the source added.

"He's really charming, but she is a little worried he might be a player," the insider told OK! magazine.

The source continued: "She doesn't want to get hurt, so she's taking it slow. She’s enjoying single life so won't rush into anything."

Giovanni dated his Strictly partner Georgia May Foote in 2015 before briefly dating TOWIE star Jess Wright in 2019.

Then, a few years later, he began a relationship with Pussycat Dolls star Ashley Roberts, with the two staying together for a year.
