Curtis Pritchard has opened up about why himself and Maura didn't have sex in the Love Island villa, and it makes plenty of sense.
Viewers were confused when Curtis kept rebuffing Maura's advances in bed, shutting down any chance of the pair consummating their relationship in the house.
In a joint interview with the Mail Online after the show ended, Curtis revealed the real reason behind his actions (or lack thereof).
Just catching up on @LoveIsland and the whole date thing bores me senseless
Also Curtis is clearly not into Maura either because no matter how tired men get they are never too tired for a bit of fun in the sheets.
Especially that early in a relationship #LoveIsland

"I want her and only her to experience it," Curtis told the publication. "We are in a bedroom with 14 other people!"
Maura echoed Curtis’ reason, admitting that Curtis was aware of how loud Maura might get; "I think it was more people hearing, he knows how loud I am."
The couple are back home and will have the opportunity to spend some quality alone time together away from the cameras, much to Maura's delight.
"No, we’ve not had a chance! Let’s just say, I’m sure we’ll get it done."

Many people assumed that Curtis rejected Maura’s sexual advances so that he can keep the opportunity alive of working for Strictly Come Dancing. Having sex on TV can harm such chances.
His brother AJ is part of the professional line-up, so it makes sense that he'd want to join him. When asked about his interest in the popular show, he said:
"First time I’ve heard of it, but I’d never close the door! I’d love to work with my brother he’s one of my idols."

Maura and Curtis came in fourth place in Monday night's live final of Love Island, behind Ovie and India, Molly and Tommy and winners Greg O'Shea and Amber Gill.
Maura admits that it wasn’t the outcome she expected, throwing her support behind her best friend from the villa;
‘I’m not going to lie, I was shocked. I love Greg and Amber but Tommy and Molly-Mae were in love.
