Maura Higgins

Maura Higgins and Curtis Pritchard are officially boyfriend and girlfriend. The couple revealed their relationship news in an interview with OK! Magazine.

The couple, who met on Love Island this summer, decided to date after they left the villa, instead of rushing into a relationship.

Curtis explained why he waited until now to ask Maura to be his girlfriend.

“I want something that's going to last forever. There's no point in rushing things. We've only known each other a short amount of time,” the professional dancer explained.

Curtis and Maura were certainly right to take things slow.

Numerous Love Island couples quickly called it quits after leaving the villa, including the winners of the show, Amber Gill and Greg O’Shea.

They may not have won the show but Maura and Curtis seem to have a pretty great relationship. Irish model Maura couldn’t help but gush about her new beau.

She even spilled the details on how Curtis asked her to be his girlfriend.

“He took me away for a weekend break, and he asked me out over dinner in London the next day,” the 28-year-old shared.

The pair have happily dated for the past couple of months, but people continue to doubt their relationship, but Maura said it doesn’t bother her because “opposites attract”.

Sure we’re only delighted for Maura and Curtis. The true winners of Love Island 2019.

Maura Higgins is officially taking part in Dancing On Ice. The Longford legend will get her skates on for the 2020 series of the popular reality show.

The news was confirmed on This Morning and it’s safe to say the Love Island star will be a huge hit with viewers.

Earlier in the year, it was reported that Amber Gill would take part but it looks like Maura pipped her to the post.

It is believed Maura’s charming personality and witty humour won the producers over.

Love Island star Maura Higgins isn't one to withhold vital information, including about shenanigans from the Spanish villa that she may have caused.

The reality star has fast become a fan favourite due to her frank and honest nature, though she has now admitted to skirting around the rules to get some extra wine. Mad respect.

"I should never tell, but I'm gonna…" she revealed during an Instagram Q&A after an appearance on The Late Late Show last Friday night.

"Some nights you get one glass of wine, some nights you get two, you either get a choice of beer or wine, I always choose wine," Maura explained.

"One night I went into the larder where the drinks get prepared and there's like a water dispenser there. I went in before everyone else and I downed everyone's wine and I filled it up with water.

"And I got in really big trouble. The whole island got punished the following night because I got really drunk. I shouldn't have probably said that. I'll get in big trouble now!"

We can relate to the struggle of craving some vino, especially if we were on a stressful reality show fighting off other gals to find love.

The Longford native has also divulged on other behind-the-scenes secrets from the reality show, admitting that some scenes were reshot.

"Yeah, we did re-shoot," Maura said. "Just say, for instance, if a text came through and you weren't loud enough or if you stumbled on your words, you'd have to re-take obviously."

Didn't Amber Gill, AKA Queen of the Love Island villa, inform us that she was "booked and busy"? Our girl doesn't lie.

The 22-year-old Geordie beautician announced this morning on her Instagram account that she's landed a huge brand ambassador gig with retailer Miss Pap;

She captioned the post; "Oh hey it’s just me, your NEW MISSPAP babe. I honestly cannot believe it!! Soooo excited to be a part of the fresh Miss Pap brand."

She continued; "It’s been a long anticipated announcement by me and I’ve been dying to tell you all.

"However I wanted to take my time in the design process so my collection is perfect, embodies my style and more importantly is inclusive for girls of all shapes and sizes. I cannot wait for you to see what I’ve been working on you know it’s going to be GOOOD."

Of course, she had to drop the long-awaited discount code for her 'huntys': AMBER50. Yas girl, slay away.

Fans online have been berating Amber for not sharing her business deals, after Molly-Mae Hague, India Reynolds and Maura Higgins landed coveted deals with PrettyLittleThing and Boohoo. 

One Twitter user asked the star; "Maura joining boohoo, Ovie joining ASOS and Molly Mae having her own collection with PLT. What is Amber doing please?"

Amber shot that sh*t down faster than you can say 'MESSAGE'.

Patience has paid off, it seems. We're delighted for her, she deserves to be a Miss Pap babe more than anyone after dealing with Michael Griffiths and Greg O'Shea.

Maura Higgins has spoken out for the first time about her fellow Islander Amber Gill's split from Greg O'Shea, insisting that the winner is a "strong, independent woman."

The Love Island star believes that the Geordie beautician, who won the show with the Irish rugby player, will thrive despite being dumped ruthlessly via text.

Greg broke up with the Newcastle beauty only five weeks after they split the £50,000 prize and beat out Tommy Fury and Molly-Mae Hague.

Speaking at the TV Choice Awards, Higgins claims that Amber doesn't need the honest relationship advice she now dishes out on ITV's This Morning.

"You know what, Amber is such a strong girl. I don't think Amber needs much advice, she's very strong. She is a strong, independent woman and she will be absolutely fine."

Gill appeared on Loose Women yesterday to confirm that the relationship ended over text after she had asked Greg to make more of an effort with the romance by flying to London or Newcastle.

She appeared at the TV Choice Awards alone, without O'Shea in attendance. Maura also spoke about joining the ITV team, saying she felt "part of the furniture".

The emphasised that the villa friendships still exist; "We try to see each other as much as possible but it's difficult. Once you've been through that experience you want to be there to support one another."

Maura has had huge success since leaving the villa; "With the opportunities, it's insane. I feel very, very lucky, honestly."

Amber Gill has confirmed that Irish rugby player Greg O'Shea dumped her by text, and didn't make an effort in their relationship.

Limerick native Greg claimed that they broke up via phone call on The Late Late Show on Friday night, but 22-year-old Geordie beautician Amber has set the record straight.

The pair won Love Island together only five weeks ago after the Irishman coupled up with her, having only been in the villa for 12 days. They split the prize money between them, but Amber should have stolen it…

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Celebrity Secrets (@celebritysecretsmag) on

Speaking for the first time since the split on today's Loose Women, Amber revealed she was "really disappointed" by the sudden end to their relationship. 

Explaining what happened, Amber said: "So from my point of view I still wanted to make it work. There was a call a few days prior just chatting, not specifically to do with that.

"I think there was a bit of miscommunication but I think if you don’t want to be with someone, you don’t want to be with someone," the Newcastle native continued,

"Basically all I wanted was a bit of effort from him to come to London or Newcastle to see me. I said I’m going to have to give up if you don’t put the effort in."

Greg then responded in a way that would make any woman's blood boil; "And he said 'okay bye'. I was expecting it to be a bit different." 

Greg had claimed that he still has feelings for Amber and has not ruled out a reunion in the future, but Amber admitted that she never expected Islanders going in late to have secret motivations. 

"He’s a lovely guy but I’m not sure what’s going to happen in the future really. It’s a bit of an odd situation. 

"The Islanders in from the beginning were naive to people going in later on and what people's perceptions were and what were being said. I didn’t really think of that at the time." 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Greg O’Shea (@gregoshea) on

As her second time as a Loose Women panelist, Amber spoke very honestly about the split. 

"Obviously I’m really disappointed. I wasn't expecting it at all. I was due to fly to Dublin and spend the weekend with him and go on a TV show together.  

"On that day I had to cancel as it wasn’t working out. I think the careers and the distance was always a factor. I don’t know what changed. I wanted to make it work but it is what it is." 

Our queen isn't letting it get her down, however; "I am disappointed it's over. I’m booked and busy and I'll be fine. Onwards and upwards from here."

Greg appeared on The Late Late Show solo with Maura Higgins after Amber cancelled due to their split. He claimed that they'd tried to make it work but the distance and busy schedules were too much.

"Me and Amber have been chatting the last few days and the whole thing about breaking up over text isn't true.  But we need to be realistic about the situation, and the fact she's in the UK," he added.

"We're both so busy and we need to take these opportunities and protecting our careers.  She has every brand wanting to work with her, and I'm trying to make the team for the Olympics"

Love Island 2019 winners Amber Gill and Greg O'Shea have reportedly broken up after only five weeks, and we're already campaigning for Amber's justice.

22-year-old Geordie beautician Amber was supposed to fly to Ireland tonight to see the rugby player, but The Sun is reporting that 24-year-old Greg has split with Amber over busy schedules.

Now, bear in mind that anything The Sun says must be taken with a pinch of salt, but a 'source' told the publication; 

"Amber feels used by Greg. He was always aware of the distance and his career in their relationship, and yet he chose to seek out Amber in the villa knowing there would always be the distance."

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Greg O’Shea (@gregoshea) on

"He hasn’t made any effort to come to London to see Amber, despite it being over five weeks, it’s always Amber who had to make the effort."

Amber was apparently 'devastated' by the cruel-hearted dumping, although she 'had a feeling' that things were gradually coming to an end. BY TEXT THOUGH? Greg, we thought you were different.

The Newcastle beauty wrote on Instagram just two days ago; "My babes. Squinty squinterson. Miss ya" alongside a photo of Greg, although Greg last posted an Instagram picture of her on August 18. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by Greg O’Shea (@gregoshea) on

The couple were scheduled to appear on The Late Late Show tonight with fellow islander Maura Higgins.

The pair were the shock winners of the fifth series of Love Island after being coupled up for only 12 days, deciding to share the £50,000 prize.

Soon-to-be-solicitor Greg was a late arrival and charmed Amber after she was pied by Michael Griffiths, who chose to recouple with Joanna Chimonides in the Casa Amor twist.

The winners haven’t been seen much together due to the distance between Limerick and Newcastle.

Amber had visited Ireland only two weeks ago, with the couple going sightseeing at the Cliffs of Moher. 

If the split is real, then Amber and Greg have the honour of being the fastest-winning couple to break up. We'll most likely discover the real story tonight, if they appear together on Ryan Tubridy's couch.

Great job, Greg. You've lost plenty of fans for losing Amber, she's an absolute gem. Ovie, any help?

Anton Danyluk and Belle Hassan have reportedly split just five weeks after leaving the Love Island villa, and now he's denying ever having been in a relationship with her. Oh dear…

The reality stars have parted ways after trying to make their romance work in real life, and failing. Pals have claimed that Belle was getting fed up with Anton's lack of attention towards her.

Belle has also seen photos of the Scottish gym owner cuddling up to bikini-clad models at parties in Ibiza.

"Belle has seen all the pictures and videos of Anton in Ibiza and now just wants out," a pal told the Sun. "She feels he's disrespecting their relationship and can't see him changing his ways."

They added that singer Craig David may have come between them, which is frankly GAS;

"His obsession with Craig David also made her feel awkward. He seemed to be more excited about reuniting with Craig than speaking to her."

Anton was forced to deny cheating on Belle last month after a video emerged of him kissing a brunette in a club, but the footage was filmed six years ago.

Anton had tried it on with Molly-Mae Hague, Anna Vakili and Lucie Donlan in the first couple of weeks of the show before getting with Belle.

Anton messed up numerous times after giving his number to a cashier, and later admitting that Anna was the best kisser in the villa.

Belle and Anton ended up in fifth place, narrowly missing out on making it to the final thanks to Tommy Fury and Molly-Mae Hague voting them out.

Anton revealed last month that he and Belle still hadn't had sex, insisting that they wanted to "take things slowly".

"We haven't done bits. When we've seen each other we've been tired and gone straight to bed," he told new! magazine."We're taking it slow, it's very PG."

He added: "Everyone's saying this 'making it official' as if we've been in a relationship for so long.

"I'm very much a realist. We've still got a bit of dating to do on the outside before we know if it's going to work. But we're both on the same page, which is important."

Anton also said that he has no intentions of leaving Scotland to be with Belle in London. "I won't be moving away, but with all the things that are going on I'm going to be up and down the country anyway."

The Scot is now denying ever having been in a serious relationship with Belle, which definitely won't go down well.

Well, the awkwardness is about to hit a new high. According to reports, Love Island winner Amber Gill has secretly been replaced by Maura Higgins in the line-up for Dancing On Ice 2019.

Maura apparently won over ITV bosses, who were previously scouting Amber for the job. She was thought to be the frontrunner to take part, but now producers may have changed their minds.

A source told The Sun: "Dancing On Ice producers were always going to sign a Love Island star for next year’s series and they wanted a girl this time after having two guys in the past."

"It was looking hopeful for Amber but Maura pipped her to the post with her sense of humour and personality."

Wes Nelson made it to the final of the show last year, while Kem Cetinay competed in 2018, so it wouldn't be the first time that a former Islander skated in the show.

Since Maura has left the villa, the star has landed a role as an agony aunt on This Morning, and secured a huge fashion deal with Boohoo alongside India Reynolds.

Dancing On Ice producers reportedly met with a number of Love Islanders, including Amber, before deciding to focus on Maura after ITV viewers fell in love with her honesty.

Amber is doing well with her aunt's Newcastle salon, and can charge a huge amount for a sponsored Instagram post, so she's not exactly the loser here after winning the cash prize on the show.

The Love Island girls have reportedly been banned from working with online retailer PrettyLittleThing after Molly-Mae Hague scored a rumoured £500,000 deal to collaborate with the fashion giant.

The 20-year-old brand ambassador and influencer launched her PLT x Molly-Mae range earlier this week, after finishing as runner-up alongside boyfriend Tommy Fury on the ITV2 reality show.

Several islanders are allegedly 'furious' at being 'blocked' from working with the brand or from doing sponsored social media posts for them, according to The Sun.

"All the Love Island girls have been blocked from doing any work with Pretty Little Thing because of Molly-Mae’s big money deal with the clothing brand," a source told the publication.

"They all went along to the launch party on Sunday night to support her, but have been told they can’t sign deals with PLT or do any social posts. They’re furious."

Amber joined Amy Hart, Anna Vakili, Joanna Chimonides, Maura Higgins and Francesca Allen in supporting Molly-Mae at the Manchester launch party, after being flown out specially.

A representative for PrettyLittleThing told Metro.co.uk that the claims were ‘completely false’.

Molly-Mae travelled to Los Angeles to shoot her new line, saying that working with PLT was "a dream come true".

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

A post shared by PrettyLittleThing (@prettylittlething) on

"When I came out I had a lot of brands wanting to work with me and wanting to have me as like an ambassador and so I think for me to go with PLT was just the most organic move. I’ve worked with them before I went in the show for a long time, and I think they’ve really had my back since like when I had like no followers," she continued.

She added, "PLT contacted me when I had like 15,000, saying “Do you want some stuff to go to Ibiza with?” and I remember being so happy. So to have that transition from that time to this now to have my own collection is just absolutely insane."

Molly-Mae’s apparent £500,000 deal with the brand is the largest sum any 2019 cast-member has gained since the show ended so far. Last year, Megan Barton Hanson also became a brand ambassador.

Tommy Fury seems to be turning his attention to the fashion world, after collaborating with UK clothing brand boohooMAN on a new edit.

The boxer found fame while appearing on the 2019 series of Love Island, and finished as the runner-up alongside Molly-Mae Hague.

His influencer girlfriend has just launched her own collection with PrettyLittleThing, but the pair don't appear to be comparing themselves to each other.

The 20-year-old has launched his first fashion edit after being announced as one of the brand's ambassadors, telling Metro.co.uk;

"I was always a massive boohooMAN supporter, even before I went in the villa – it’s a clothing brand I always did wear. It’s a massive privilege to be working with boohooMAN, it’s a pleasure to be on board.

"You should always feel comfortable and feel happy in what you wear. Fashion is a big thing – we’ve always got to be staying fresh now, haven’t we?" His fashion credentials are rising, for sure.

Tommy launched the edit with a slew of celebrity friends at London's SushiSamba on Monday, with Molly-Mae Hague, Curtis Pritchard and Maura Higgins, AJ Pritchard, India Reynolds and Joanna Chimonides showing their support.

He added to Metro.co.uk that himself and Molly-Mae don't argue over their fashion branding;

"No competition, none at all – never has, never will be. We both couldn’t be happier for each other. Molly’s doing great things with PLT, I’m doing great things with boohooMAN. We’re just enjoying every day as it comes."

The reality star is looking better than ever in the images, sporting all-white and all-black tracksuits and fashionable trainers.

Tommy is following in the footsteps of fellow Love Island cast members Wes Nelson and Josh Denzel, who signed with the global online retailer last year. 

Samir Kamani, CEO of boohooMAN, said in a statement: "We are pleased to welcome Tommy on board. We have lots of exciting projects coming up with him so keep a close eye!

"He was a fan of the brand before going on to the show so our collaboration feels like a natural progression for both of us."
