Love Island 2019 couple Maura Higgins and Curtis Pritchard beat the odds to become one of the last standing couples from the summer show last year, but announced on Monday 2 March they've split.

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.

How did Maura Higgins and Curtis Pritchard get together?

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.

When did Maura and Curtis go official?

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'.
