After four years of dating, rapper Stormzy and TV presenter Maya Jama split up to focus on their careers.

Although they only confirmed their romance in early February, Jess and Giovanni actually started dating at the end of 2017.

Despite this, the pair didn't start posting photos with each other until around Valentine's Day in February. Sharing a snap of himself kissing Jess, Giovanni wrote, 'Buon San Valentino', which translates to 'Happy Valentine's Day'.

Although Jess didn't mention Giovanni in her own post, the reality star posted the iconic scene from romantic comedy Love Actually, where Andrew Lincoln's character holds up a sign saying, 'To Me, You Are Perfect'.

Alongside the photo, Jess wrote, 'Happy Valentine’s Day ❤️ I hope someone makes you feel this special today 🌹 #loveactually'. [sic]

Jess has since deleted all trace of the Italian from her profile, but it looks like she's missed one photo of the pair.

In a throwback photo from New Year's Eve, Jess left a photo of the pair kissing on her Instagram account.
