Giovanni Pernice and Maura Higgins are reportedly planning on moving in together as their romance continues to heat up.

The Strictly Come Dancing star, 31, and 30 year old Maura are said to hope that shacking up will "move things up a level.

Giovanni and Love Island babe Maura were rumoured to be dating earlier this year and later confirmed their romance with a PDA-packed Instagram post in July.

And now, just a few months into their romance the pair are said to be ready to take the next step.

A source said: "Things have become serious very quickly between Maura and Gio and they are now ready to move things up a level by getting their own place.

"They both lead incredibly busy lives and spend a lot of time on the road working – so having somewhere they can come back to and always be together is incredibly important.

"They have been talking about it and would like to start looking as soon as they can," they added to the Mail Online.

OK! has contacted representatives for Giovanni and Maura for comment.

It comes after reports that Giovanni's friend think he may be ready to pop the question to Maura.

Giovanni, who is paired with EastEnders star Rose Ayling-Ellis on this year's Strictly, has reportedly told those close to him his deep feelings for the Irish beauty and has also been left "love-struck".

According to a source, Giovanni has also "never felt like this about anyone before".

“He has fallen for Maura incredibly quickly and right now she comes before everything else in his life," the insider told The Sun.

“He is still putting the hours in on Strictly but once that’s done he is happiest spending as much time as possible with Maura.

“None of his mates have seen him like this before and Maura, who is always in and around set, has become really close to Giovanni’s friends as well."

What's more, the source has claimed that the suave pro and famously tough teacher in the training room has said he wants to be with Maura "forever".
