Love Island’s Tasha Ghouri has quite a colourful dating history having romanced Strictly Come Dancing professional Giovanni Pernice and Too Hot to Handle contestant Robert Van Tromp in the past.

The 23-year-old model and dancer, who is the first-ever deaf contestant to appear on the ITV2 dating show, is currently hoping to find love in the Majorcan villa where she’s had her head turned a few times already.

Before waltzing into series eight though, Tasha admitted her relationships had been a ‘bit of a shambles’.

Let’s have a little look into her dating past.

it’s believed that Tasha dated professional dancer Giovanni, 31, for a few weeks in January after he won last year’s Strictly with Rose Ayling-Ellis.

The pair connected via Instagram and exchanged messages on the app before eventually meeting.

According to reports, Giovanni wined and dined Tasha but their romance wasn’t to last as he was travelling across the country for the Strictly tour.

‘Giovanni was persistent when it came to Tasha,’ an insider said. ‘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.’

The source added to Mail Online: ‘Their romance didn’t progress because Giovanni was travelling a lot with the Strictly tour and Tasha was already involved with someone else.’

Tasha seemingly referred to her past with Giovanni during Tuesday night’s episode of Love Island.

‘I’ve dated Italian before and it’s not for me,’ she said.

We defo need the deets on this romance!

‘Robert is gutted after seeing Tasha on Love Island,’ a source claimed.

‘She ticks all his boxes and he had hoped to reconnect with her after regretting their breakup.’
