Love Island's Maura Higgins is taking Giovanni Pernice romance 'slow' because she's 'worried he's a player'

LOVE Island's Maura Higgins is taking her romance with Giovanni Pernice "slow" because she's "worried he's a player".

The pair were thought to be in the early stages of a relationship after popping up in the same places.

Following her split from Chris Taylor, Maura isn't looking for anything serious, according to reports.

An insider told OK! magazine: "Giovanni is smitten. He always fancied her and slid into her DMs. It's very early days."

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

"He's really charming, but she is a little worried he might be a player."

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."

The Sun has contacted Maura's reps for comment. Giovanni's reps had no comment.

This comes after a source claimed the Strictly star and Love Island beauty were in a relationship.

A source told the Mail: "It's early days, but Maura is really enjoying getting to know Giovanni, and the feeling is mutual.
