Tasha is said to have dated Too Hot To Handle star Robert Van Tromp just a few months before heading into the villa.
According to this tabloid, the stars met in October last year and dated for five months.
A source told the publication that the Netflix star was ‘gutted after seeing Tasha on Love Island’, adding: “She ticks all his boxes and he had hoped to reconnect with her after regretting their breakup.
"Tasha is the one that got away and he believes he let a gem go, watching her on the show this summer won't be easy for him."
The pair are said to have met via Instagram DMs, as per this tabloid, and enjoyed a string of dates before his busy tour schedule led to their romance fizzling out.
A source told this tabloid: “Giovanni was persistent when it came to Tasha. They have a lot in common, both being dancers, and he had just learned a lot about the deaf community performing with Rose on Strictly, who Tasha really admires.
“Tasha was impressed by how gentlemanly he was, taking her out to top London restaurants and offering to send cars to collect her, but she's independent and always made her own way to see him.
“Their romance didn't progress because Giovanni was travelling a lot with the Strictly tour and Tasha was already involved with someone else.”
