Maura Higgins may be preparing to enter the haunted Gwrych Castle for I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! following her split from Strictly Come Dancing star Giovanni Pernice.
Earlier this week, it was reported that the Love Island star, 30, and the professional dancer, 31, had broken up after dating for four months.
A source later claimed that Giovanni broke up with Maura two weeks ago, leaving her ‘blindsided’.
While Giovanni has his Strictly campaign with Rose Ayling-Ellis to focus on at the moment, Maura could be getting ready to face her fears on I’m A Celeb, alongside other familiar faces tipped to be taking part including Frankie Bridge and Richard Madeley.
According to bookmakers, there’s a strong chance Maura could be taking part in the reality TV show two years after entering the Love Island villa.
The latest odds from Ladbrokes bookies claim that the model and TV presenter has 7/2 odds of joining in with the shenanigans of gruesome eating challenges, fireside meals and terrifying trials.
Jessica O’Reilly of Ladbrokes said: ‘With her ex Giovanni making all the headlines on Strictly, a stint on I’m A Celebrity would be the perfect opportunity for Maura to create her own.’
When contacted by Metro.co.uk regarding the possibility of Maura joining I’m A Celebrity, ITV said that the company does not comment on speculation.
Maura’s career has gone from strength to strength since her Love Island stint, with the TV personality going on to collaborate with several fashion and make-up brands, in addition to presenting on This Morning and on the Irish version of make-up competition Glow Up.
Last year, she competed on Dancing On Ice, finishing in sixth place.
A source told The Sun that Maura and Giovanni’s relationship came to an end in light of Maura travelling ‘here, there and everywhere’ for modelling and Giovanni ‘working 24/7 on Strictly’.
According to the source, the dancer is not planning on settling down once this season of Strictly has ended.
The source claimed that Maura was ‘hugely supportive’ of Giovanni and feeling ‘utterly heartbroken’ by their split.
I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! is set to return to ITV later this year.
