Giovanni Pernice, 30, is thought to be in the early stages of a relationship with Maura Higgins, 30, after she split from her fellow ITV2 dating show contestant Chris Taylor earlier this year. The reality star kissed her new beau good luck ahead of the performance before heading down to sit amongst the audience and enjoy the dancing, according to a source.
The source told the MailOnline: “Giovanni was so thrilled that Maura was in the audience for his opening night – and she loved seeing him in action.
“Although Giovanni is working it’s been like a mini-break for them, they’re staying at Blackpool’s The Big Blue Hotel, which has been a fun experience.”
It comes days after it was revealed that Maura and Giovanni are enjoying a romance after the pair were spotted together.
The stars sparked rumours that they are an item after sharing very similar photos from inside Wembley Stadium at the weekend.
The Strictly Come Dancing professional and the former Love Island finalist both posted Instagram snaps with the same view while watching Italy vs. Austria in the Euros.
She is said to be taking her romance with the Strictly Come Dancing star “slowly” because she’s “worried he could be a player”.
The duo fuelled speculation on social media again when Maura posted a clip of the football match, where she gave her 3.2 million followers a tour around the stadium.
She then posted a selfie of herself enjoying the match in the crowd.
Giovanni also shared a similar snap from the same location in view of his 425,000 followers.
The dancer then posted a video of himself at the match while looking dapper in a pink suit.
Giovanni was filmed singing and cheering in the crowd in the clip.
He penned alongside it: “#EnjoyThe Rivalry #SupportResponsibly #StarOfTheMatch #Heineken #Euro2020.”

Express.co.uk has contacted Giovanni and Maura’s representatives for comment.
Maura and Giovanni have also been liking each other’s social media photos in recent weeks after following one another, according to OK! Magazine.
However, following her split from Chris Taylor, Maura isn’t looking for anything serious, according to reports.
An insider told the publication: “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.
“She doesn’t want to get hurt, so she’s taking it slow. She’s enjoying single life so won’t rush into anything,” they concluded of their romance.
The pair are both no strangers to high-profile relationships – with Maura having dated Love Island co-stars Chris Taylor and Curtis Pritchard.
Giovanni previously dated fellow Strictly star and Pussycat Doll Ashley Roberts before they split last year.
