Maura Higgins and boyfriend Curtis Pritchard have split – here’s everything you need to know from their Love Island journey to their relationship struggles.
Maura, who recently competed on Dancing On Ice, and Curtis, who is performing on stage, officially coupled up in the villa just weeks before the final and it’s fair to say, no one saw it coming.
We take a look into Maura and her boyfriend’s relationship as they split after eight months together.
Here’s everything you need to know:
Curtis spent the majority of his Love Island journey coupled up with Amy Hart before his head was eventually turned by some newbies and of course, Maura.
Once Amy left the villa, the two got to know each other better and it wasn’t long before they coupled up. They also made it to the Love Island final.
They didn’t become boyfriend and girlfriend immediately after Love Island, but after a romantic break in October 2019, Curtis popped the all important question.
The couple were surrounded by break up rumours in December due to their hectic schedules keeping them apart.
However, Maura and Curtis ended the rumours with a rather sexy bath time snap.
They went on to make a few joint public appearances in the New Year, attending the National Television Awards together and sharing a lot of gushing Instagram posts about one another for Curtis' birthday and Valentine's Day.
However, they split in March after 'trying to make things work'.
Maura said in a statement there was 'no bad feeling on either side' but it just 'wasn't to be'.
