Maura showed off her toned back and the star tattoo on her neck as she got into a waiting car.

She paired her sleek ensemble with towering black Christian Louboutin heels and a chic black handbag.

While she put her brunette locks in an elegant updo, she completed her look with a touch of dewy makeup.

The model appeared in good spirits as she put on a dazzling smile before heading out with her friends.

Her night out comes after Maura shared a selection of beloved snaps with her boyfriend Giovanni Pernice on Instagram on Wednesday.

The star looked impeccable in the photos as she sizzled in a deep black lace-trimmed playsuit as Giovanni watched passionately.

The loving post, in which Maura pointedly referred to Giovanni as “my husband,” comes after his ex-girlfriend Katie McGlynn joined the Strictly Come Dancing lineup last week.

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

Strictly bosses are reportedly excited to pair Giovanni and Katie, who were in a romantic relationship 5 years ago, for the competition.

However, they know that this could cause problems 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 in question.”

They continued, “The show’s bosses always strive to match pros and celebrities who probably have the most chemistry. In that regard, Giovanni and Katie are an obvious choice,

“But they have to wonder if that could have the knock-on effect of making life outside the rehearsal studio so difficult that it could affect their performances.”

MailOnline has contacted a Strictly representative for further comment.

Katie and Giovanni had been linked in 2017 when it was reported that they had enjoyed a night out with friends and a “dinner and cinema” date.

However, the Coronation Street actress later stopped speculating and denied that they were dating.

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

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

A source told MailOnline: ‘Gio and Maura really are a couple. Everyone knows he’s played on the field in the past, but he’s serious about Maura.

“He is in love with her, they bond very quickly and spend a lot of time together in Blackpool.

“She’s befriended the entire cast and crew of Him and Me and they love her. Maura also got to know Anton and they got along very well.’

The dancer was in a relationship with 30-year-old Corrie actress Georgia May Foote when he teamed up with her on Strictly in 2015.

He also dated Pussycat Dolls singer Ashley Roberts when she was on Strictly in 2018.
