Her ex Giovanni Pernice has reportedly moved on with MIC star Verity Bowditch.
But Maura Higgins didn’t let the news of her former flame’s love life let her down as she basked in the sun in the Maldives on Saturday.
The former Love Island star, 31, showed off her pert bum in a very skimpy green thong bikini as she posed up a storm on the beach.

The beauty had all eyes on her peach-colored derriere and nimble legs in the two-piece rope as she held a beer in her hands.
Maura paired her perfect beach look with a sun hat and wore tiny gold hoop earrings as she showed off her tan.
She boldly captioned the sizzling new snap: “Thirsty?”
It comes after her ex Giovanni has reportedly moved on and is now dating Made In Chelsea star Verity, a month after his split from Maura.

Giovanni has a string of famous exes, including Maura, Ashley Roberts, TOWIE’s Jess Wright, fellow dance pro Luba Mushtuk, 32, and former celeb dance partner Georgia May Foote.
Meanwhile, Verity has previously dated DJ Cameron Jack and fellow MIC stars James Taylor and Tristan Phipps.
Their new romance comes next Maura reportedly joined celebrity dating app Raya just a month after her split from Strictly’s Giovanni.
The Sun reported that Maura had joined the exclusive app and was recovering after her failed romance with the professional dancer.
A source told the publication: ‘Maura is a beautiful girl and has already been bombarded with offers and swipes. She won’t be single for long.’

With a waiting list of 100,000 and strict checking procedures, Raya is a favorite dating app of celebrities.
MailOnline contacted Maura’s representatives at the time for comment.
Giovanni was previously forced to deny rumors that he had been on Raya while still with Maura, after his profile was discovered.
Insiders told The Sun that Giovanni was active on the Raya celebrity dating app on October 5, before his split with the Irish beauty was confirmed.
A source said: ‘Giovanni’s profile was on Raya while he was still very much with Maura. It doesn’t say he’s just looking for friendship.
“Obviously it’s for dates and it will be another blow to Maura. Gio said he wasn’t actively using the app, but it only takes two seconds to delete.”
Despite the allegations, a representative for the star told MailOnline at the time: “Giovanni joined Raya years ago and his original profile remained on the site. He definitely didn’t use Raya while he was in a relationship.”
The couple’s romance reportedly ended after days of cohabitation with the Irish beauty said to be “absolutely devastated”.
Maura’s relationship with Giovanni was her first in the public eye since her breakup in May with former Love Island co-star Chris Taylor, 31.
Giovanni took to Instagram last month, stressing that sometimes “great relationships with great people can come to a natural end,” which has happened to him and Maura.

He wrote: ‘Hey guys, I hope everyone had a great Monday. We are going into another great week of training – thank you so much for your great messages and your support this weekend.
“I can make my dream come true every day thanks to you – so thank you, thank you, thank you. I wanted to say a few things…
“First, great relationships with great people can come to a natural end. This has been the case with me lately. There was absolutely no error and this should be the end of any speculation.
“While I respect and understand the interest in my personal life, wouldn’t it be great to use this space instead to raise awareness of topics and issues that need attention.
“During my career, my eyes have been opened to so many things. But I’m learning so much from this series from Strictly.
“The show has brought out many important conversations for different communities and increased representation.
“These are the conversations that deserve the time, energy and recognition. We need to focus on what’s important and how we can all make a difference in life. Gio x’.
