MAURA Higgins appears to be more loved up than ever with her Strictly boyfriend Giovanni Pernice.

The former Love Island star revealed how much they are missing each other by posting a photo he shared onto her Instagram Story.

Taking to her official Story, Maura reposted the adorable throwback that Giovanni had posted for her 3.6million followers to see.

In it, he is hugging her sweetly as he tenderly kisses the side of her face – with Maura commanding attention in a skimpy brown bikini.

Maura risked it all in the risky piece, which teased a glimpse of underboob.

She held onto Giovanni's hand as they smiled coyly while stood in the pool.

Giovanni wrote in his caption: "Missing my babygirl ♥️ @maurahiggins."

Fans rushed to comment, including Maura's best friend and Love Island co-star Molly-Mae Hague, who gushed: "Very cute ❤️"

Strictly star Neil Jones joked: "But are you missing me, your babyboy?"

Maura swooned in the comments: "Not long now baby ❤️"

The TV personality and Irish model then shared the snap on her story with two red love hearts.

It comes after Maura reportedly told pals she is 'dreading' seeing who Giovanni is next paired up with on Strictly.

A pal told The Sun: "Maura hasn't had to deal with the whole Strictly unveiling and all the whispering and talk about the Strictly curse.

"She's dreading it a little bit but, at the same time, her and Gio are rock solid and they are really, really happy.

"Maura knows dating a sexy male Strictly dancer comes with one down-side – and that is having to see him perform with another woman but it will take a bit of getting used to.

"One thing is for sure though Maura plans to be there supporting Gio when the shows kick off."
