Jowita’s budding relationship with Giovanni is said to have been a blow for Hamza, who ‘fell head over heels for her’.
‘Hamza and Jowita became very close and at times were quite touchy-feely, obviously their closeness really helped when it came to them winning the trophy,’ a source told The Sun.
‘But while Jowita thinks the world of him, she held back from anything romantic and kept him slightly at arm’s length.
‘When it was clear she was involved with Giovanni, the reason for that became clear. But while Hamza wants her to be happy, he was quietly devastated.’
