Giovanni Pernice’s friends ‘wouldn’t be surprised’ if he proposes to Maura Higgins

It looks like marriage could be on the cards for Giovanni Pernice and Maura Higgins…

The couple have only been dating since June, but the Italian dancer has reportedly told pals Maura is “the one”.

A source told The Sun: “Giovanni has never felt like this about anyone before. He has fallen for Maura incredibly quickly and right now she comes before everything else in his life.”

“He is still putting the hours in on Strictly but once that’s done he is happiest spending as much time as possible with Maura,” the insider continued.

“None of his mates have seen him like this before and Maura, who is always in and around set, has become really close to Giovanni’s friends as well.”

“Nobody would be surprised if they end up getting married because Giovanni has been saying she is the one he wants to be with forever.”

The news comes after Maura recently slammed “rubbish” reports about their relationship.

Giovanni is a professional dancer on Strictly Come Dancing, and this season he’s been paired up with actress Rose Ayling-Ellis.

In the weeks leading up to the show’s return, Maura and Giovanni have been forced to shut down numerous reports about their relationship, including claims Maura is “worried” about the Strictly curse.

Taking to Twitter on Friday, Maura re-posted an article in which a source claimed she “isn’t bothered” by the curse because she trusts “big flirt” Giovanni.

Slamming the report, the Longford native wrote: “Another weekend brings another story full of rubbish!! What will it be next week guys?”

Last month, Giovanni said Maura shouldn’t be worried about the Strictly curse, as he doesn’t believe it exists.

He told Hello magazine: “Maura is absolutely fine, in the sense that it’s not a curse, I’m going to dance with my celeb, and she will be supporting me all the way.”

“Realistically, if you’re happy in your relationship there is no reason for the curse. If you’re happy with your wife or with your husband, you wouldn’t go on Strictly to cheat.”

“I always answer the same thing; you can have a curse anywhere, if you go to the office, you can have a curse with a person that’s working with you.”

“It’s not a ‘Strictly Curse’, it’s something that if you’re single, if your partner’s single and you end up liking each other, there is nothing wrong with that,” he added.
