“Maura has decided to step back and let him focus on the show,” the source concluded.

MailOnline has reached out to representatives for Maura and Giovanni for comment.

The news of the split closely follows Monday’s reports that Maura had deleted almost all of Giovanni’s photos from her Instagram page, leading to rumors that the couple had split up.

The Glow Up Ireland host last posted a photo with the dancer on September 24 in a carousel ad post, where the two look as loved as ever when they hug.

Giovanni has also removed the reality star from his page without a trace.

The reported end to their whirlwind romance may be the result of the Strictly Curse, in which celebrities split up with their romantic partners during the show or shortly after.

Many viewers have commented that Giovanni and EastEnders actress Rose would be “cute” together.

But nothing indicates that they are more than just friends.
