Strictlys Giovanni Pernice to dance break-up ballad following Maura split


Strictly Come Dancing pro Giovanni Pernice is set to dance to an emotional ballad with partner Rose Ayling-Elli following his reported split from Maura Higgins.

Giovanni and the Love Island star were dating for four months and were said to be going from strength to strength before they fuelled heavy split speculation by suddenly deleting all evidence of each other from their social media pages.

And now, Strictly bosses have released the song and dance choices for week five of the popular competitive dance series.

Just two weeks after "splitting" from Maura, Giovanni is keeping busy with work and will be dancing the Viennese Waltz to Alicia Keys' hit tune, Fallin'.

Fallin' was American singer Alicia's breakout hit single, which she released in 2001 and topped the charts.

Alicia previously revealed she wrote her song while going through a rough patch in her first serious relationship.

"Your first one [relationship] affects you even more so because you don't have the experience to know how to play it," she said.

The star added: "You're tripping your way through it, and those hardships and good times and just growing is how Fallin' developed."

Meanwhile, it has been a rocky few days for Giovanni whose alleged break-up with Maura was brought to light.

Sources claimed that the "Strictly curse" had struck again with the former couple, who were reported to have moved in together before their break-up.

An insider claimed their romance had "hit the rocks" just days into their new journey, with Giovanni spending so much time in the training studio with Rose, which was causing friction between them.

"It's all over for now. Maura's absolutely devastated. It appears the Strictly curse has struck again," a source told The Sun.

They continued: "Pals are hoping that they can patch things up. But only time will tell whether they'll work things out as Giovanni is so busy.

"He's been focusing on Strictly, training his celeb partner Rose 24/7, and they've become really good friends. He's even been learning sign language from Rose, showing it off on social media."

The insider added that Maura was the one who chose to step back and let Giovanni put all his focus into this year's dance series.
