The source also claims that he was not ready to settle down, which is said to have left Maura ‘heartbroken’.

The insider claimed: “Maura didn’t see this coming and is finding it very difficult to come to terms with. She genuinely thought Gio was the one.

“Gio is working 24/7 on Strictly and Maura is flying here, there and everywhere with modelling.

"Gio is also set to go on tour again next year when Strictly ends so their lifestyles just don’t fit with settling down at the moment.”

"That’s why Gio decided to end things,” the source added, “They have crazy suitcase lives which makes it hard to be in a relationship.

"He adores Maura and had hoped they could remain friends - but that doesn’t look likely.”

This comes just weeks after it was reported that the pair were set to move in together.
