Strictly’s Jowita Przystal sends temperatures soaring in a skimpy bikini in the Maldives
Strictly Come Dancing‘s Jowita Przystal sent temperatures soaring as she posed in her bikini collection in the Maldives after her split from fellow pro dancer Giovanni Pernice earlier this month.
The reigning strictly champion, 28, was rumoured to be dating heartthrob Giovanni back in December before they called it quits over ‘hectic work schedules’.
But Jowita put the split far from her mind as she stayed at the ‘heaven on earth’ Sun Siyam Iru Fushi resort.
Posting an array of sun-soaked snaps from over the past couple of weeks, the dancer showed off her toned washboard abs in a hazelnut one-shoulder bikini.
In another picture she displayed her incredible figure in a white bikini as she balanced on a swing with a backdrop of turquoise-clear waters on her paradisal retreat.

Jowita showed herself to be at one with nature as she posed among the palm leaves, roamed the golden sands and relaxed under a waterfall.
Jowita and Giovanni’s reported break-up came just days after the Italian dancer appeared to confirm his romance with Jowita during an interview slip-up, where he referred to them as ‘we’.
Despite attempting to say that he wasn’t going to discuss the romance rumours, Giovanni accidentally referred to himself and Jowita as one by saying: ‘We are not talking about anything’.
Sources allegedly confirmed the split to The Sun, sharing: ‘As time has passed they have found it increasingly difficult to build on their relationship because of their hectic work schedules.
‘Giovanni is on tour for the next five months and trying to make time for each other has proved absolutely impossible.
Continuing that things are civil, they added: ‘Although their relationship has ended Giovanni and Jowita said they will stay good friends. It is just a shame they couldn’t make it work.’
MailOnline contacted representatives for Giovanni and Jowita for comment at the time.
Reports of a relationship between the pair began to circulate in December, saying that the pair were the ‘worst kept secret’ at the BBC, and were even said to be kissing backstage at Strictly.

The couple were also left supportive comments on each other’s social media posts – before being snapped out together on Valentine’s Day last month.
It even appeared that Giovanni confirmed their romance during an interview with RadioTimes.
During the interview, Giovanni was asked about his relationship with his rumoured flame – but while attempting to move the conversation away from that topic – seemingly did the opposite.
He told the interviewer: ‘This was my New Year resolution. We are not talking about anything.’
Picking up on the subtleties of his response, the interviewer probed: ‘We, so there’s a we?’ to which he ‘smiles silently’.
Also present in the room was fellow Strictly Star Anton Du Beke – who reportedly ‘howled’ with laughter as his friend got tangled in his own mess.
Referencing Giovanni’s love life, Anton added: ‘I want Gio to find love like I have. He’ll be a wonderful dad.
‘He’s such a lovely boy. Any girl who ends up with him will be lucky.

Jowita was previously in a relationship with pro dancer Michael Danilczuk, 31.
