Last night, the nation cheered when Curtis Pritchard and Amy Hart made things (kind of) official.
However, it seems there’s trouble in paradise already as a teaser video has shown Curtis and Amy having an argument in tonight’s episode, leaving her in tears.
In the same episode, two new girls will be entering the villa. One of them Curtis already knows, Maura Higgins.
Maura Higgins is a 28-year-old model and grid girl from County Longford, Ireland.
There have been screenshots all over Instagram of Curtis liking Maura’s pictures from as far back as a year ago. However, after checking her Instagram it appears that this screenshot is false.
Despite that, according to a show insider, Maura was a brand ambassador for tanning product Bellamianta. If you’re not familiar with them, they sponsor Dancing With The stars.
An insider told Extra.ie: “Curtis Pritchard, who is also a Bellamianta tan ambassador would have met Maura Higgins before,
“She has been at the audience for filming and has done photo-shoots of behalf of the tan for the company.
“Maura will have been around the show and the contestants but she will also have been around the professional dancers.
“When she goes into the villa tonight they will definitely have lot in common. That might make things a bit difficult for Amy, and will really test the exclusive nature of their couple.”
Maura told ITV2: “I’m outgoing and I really am looking to find love. I’m a relationship type of girl. I hate being single. I was in a nine-year relationship that finished a few years ago. Then I was with another guy, we broke up last year sometime, then we got back together but the trust was gone and it’s not going to come back. It ended quite recently. As the trust is just gone, for me, there is no going back.”
In 2017, Maura starred in Liam Payne’s music video for his single Get Low.
You can catch Love Island at 9pm every night on ITV2.
