Love Island’s Chris Taylor has shared a picture on Instagram in a matching outfit to one Maura Higgins posted in, adding to speculation that the pair are more than friends.
Love Island star Chris Taylor posted an Instagram photo of him in a Mickey Mouse dressing gown, just days after his former co-star Maura Higgins shared a Minnie Mouse post, fuelling those dating rumours that have been flying around.
The 29-year-old reality TV star shared the snap with the caption: “Just need to find a Minnie,” after the Irish beauty had penned: “Just need to find a Mickey.”
Friends of the pair and former Islanders have taken to the comments under Chris’ picture to troll the snap, with winner Greg O’Shea writing: “[laughing emoji] excellent banter out of you.”
This comes after rumours had circulated that the pair, who met a year ago on Love Island 2019, had been getting romantically involved after he was pictured leaving Maura’s home the morning after staying around.
However, a few days later, Maura’s representative spoke to OK! Online, revealing that the pair are just friends, despite fans shipping the duo’s rumoured romance.
They said: “Maura and Chris Taylor’s friendship is simply platonic.”
It was only last week that reports had gone around claiming that Maura had also been linked to Michael, who famously left his coupling with Amber Gill before she went on to be crowned the queen of the show.
Fans had also speculated the rumours, with lots of them taking to Twitter to share how ‘close’ the stars had been getting.
