Strictly fans convinced Giovanni and Rose's 'break-up dance' was a secret nod to his split from Maura Higgins

STRICLTY Come Dancing fans couldn't help but wonder if Giovanni Pernice and Rose Ayling-Ellis's dramatic dance was about his recent break-up.

Giovanni, 31, and Rose, 24, danced to Alicia Key's emotional 2009 anthem Fallin' and told a story of a stormy relationship.

They acted out the couple being drawn together and pushing each other away before reuniting passionately in a dance that earned Rose her first '10' score.

Even judge Shirley Ballas was overcome with emotion watching the performance saying it reminded her of "all my ex-husbands."

"All the saying 'go away', 'no come here', it took me back," she told them.

But for viewers at home they couldn't help but notice the depiction of the tumultuous couple came after The Sun revealed the Strictly pro dancer and Love Island star Maura Higgins, 30, had split after four months of dating.

"Interesting concept considering gio just split with maura," pointed out one fan on Twitter.

Another added: "Was Giovanni describing his relationship with Maura?"

And a third wrote: "Anyone else think that 'argument' and Giovanni's 'explanation' was about him and Maura?!"

The Love Island beauty was left heartbroken when the Strictly dancer called time on their relationship after just a few months. 

The Sun revealed how it was Giovanni who ended the romance – because he wasn’t ready to settle down.

And Maura was left blindsided by the split, which came just days after they moved in together, and is “utterly heartbroken”.

She deleted all trace of the Italian from her social media, telling pals she “has to move on” from their four-month romance.

A source said: “Maura didn’t see this coming and is finding it very difficult to come to terms with. She genuinely thought Gio was the one.”

The pair are believed to have split two weeks ago after heart-to-heart talks.

It is believed Giovanni admitted he had become concerned the pair’s “crazy suitcase lives” meant they weren’t able to see enough of each other.
