Chris cut a casual figure in a pair of skinny three quarter length blue jeans which he teamed with a denim jacket in a lighter shade of the same colour.

He added a touch of flare to his get-up by wearing a rucksack with multi-coloured rainbows on the straps and he grinned as he hugged Harriet from behind.

Harriet looked stylish in a mustard skirt and orange jumper with a funky pattern which she wore over a white shirt.

The Love Island star, 30, looked flawless in the picture as she sizzled in a plunging black lace trimmed playsuit while Giovanni looked on in passionate style. 

The doting post, in which Maura pointedly called Giovanni ‘my man’ comes after his ex-girlfriend Katie McGlynn joined the Strictly Come Dancing line up last week.

Maura recently followed Giovanni’s Coronation Street actress ex, 28, who became known for her role as Sinead Tinker, on Instagram.

Strictly bosses are reportedly eager to pair Giovanni and Katie, who were romantically involved 5 years ago, together for the competition. 

However, they know this could cause spell trouble for the professional dancer and his new Irish reality star girlfriend. 

An insider told The Sun: ‘This would be a dream ticket for Strictly producers, but a potential nightmare for the trio concerned.’

They continued: ‘The show’s bosses always strive to pair up pros and celebrities likely to have the most chemistry. In that respect, Giovanni and Katie are an obvious choice,

‘But they have to consider if that could have the knock-on effect of making life so difficult outside of the rehearsal studio that it might impact on their performances.’ 

MailOnline has contacted a Strictly representative for further comment. 

Katie and Giovanni were linked back in 2017 when it was reported that they’d enjoyed a night out with pals and ‘dinner and the cinema’ date.

However the Coronation Street actress later shut down speculation and denied they were dating. 

Maura and Giovanni first went public with their relationship at Sapphires, Blackpool’s Premier Drag Cabaret Show Bar at the beginning of July.

And he’s already introduced her to the cast and crew of the Him And Me show he’s starring in with new Strictly judge, Anton Du Beke.

A source told MailOnline: ‘Gio and Maura are very much a couple. Everyone know he’s played the field in the past but he is serious about Maura. 

‘He’s smitten with her, they’ve become close really quickly and are spending a lot of time together in Blackpool.

‘She’s become pals with all of the cast and crew of Him and Me too and they think she’s great. Maura has also met Anton and they got on brilliantly.’

Elsewhere Maura and Chris’s fellow Love Island stars Paige Turley, 24, and Finn Tapp, 21, put on a loved-up display as they posed for pictures while giving away free McFlurry’s as part of the Fancy A McDonald’s campaign on Thursday.

Paige looked stylish in a blue blazer which she wore over a white top to match her cropped trousers which were ripped at the knee.
