Maura was unlucky in love on Love Island before she eventually coupled up with Curtis Pritchard – a relationship which lasted until March this year, while Chris became everybody’s best mate on the show.

But who was Chris Taylor with on Love Island? Here's the lowdown on his villa journey…

Chris entered the villa in 2019 as a late arrival alongside Francesca Allen, but he quickly won the hearts of the nation as he paraded around in patterned silk robes with his hair in a towel.

He coupled up with Harley Brash for a few weeks before they were booted from the villa, but that relationship only lasted a short period before they split as they “didn’t have enough quality time for each other.”

Before Harley, he coupled up with Maura as friends when her hopes to pair up with Curtis were dashed by Francesca.

Maura was planning to make her move on Curtis after the Irish beauty dumped Casa Amor contestant Marvin Brooks.

Chris also had a brief closeness with Francesca at the start of his villa journey, a bond which had viewers begging for them to get together.

But, one year on, and it seems he and Maura were always destined to be together!
