The 30 year old took to her Instagram stories to share a snap of the lovely bouquet but kept the identity of the sender a secret.

Recently, the pair were also thought to have enjoyed the football together after they did little to dispel speculation as they both posted separate snaps at Wembley Stadium.

Taking to Instagram Stories, Italian native Giovanni shared a video of himself at the Italy vs Austria Euros match.

Wearing a pink suit, he was seen singing and clapping in the crowd as he wrote alongside it: “#EnjoyTheRivalry #SupportResponsibly #StarOfTheMatch #Heineken #Euro2020.”

OK! had previously spotted the pair started following each other on Instagram and were liking each other’s snaps.

A source recently told the Mail: "It's early days, but Maura is really enjoying getting to know Giovanni, and the feeling is mutual.

"They're both career driven and ambitious, which are qualities they find really attractive in each other."

Maura had been enjoying the single life since her shock split from former Islander Chris Taylor, spending time with her bestie Molly-Mae Hague.

Not too long ago the star and her ex boyfriend Curtis Pritchard came face to face in an "awkward" encounter at Thorpe Park.

The pair both attended the launch of the Black Mirror Labyrinth live experience but sources said they didn't acknowledge each other.

"Curtis was already in the VIP area with his brother AJ when Maura arrived with her friends," a source told OK!.

"Soon after Curtis and AJ left the area and walked right past Maura. They didn’t even acknowledge each other and it was all rather awkward."
