Curtis Pritchard breaks silence after Maura split and throws himself into work

Curtis Pritchard has broken his silence at last after Maura Higgins revealed on Monday that they had split.

The dancer is yet to comment on the sad break up, but instead sent a clear message that he is throwing himself into his work as he rehearses for his brother AJ's dancing tour.

And though he's raised eyebrows with his saucy grinding routine with dancers including Amber Pierson, he still tagged all his dancing co stars to prove he isn't letting the rumours stop him.

He posted a series of snaps from the rehearsals including a video being played on a screen on the stage of the brothers dancing when they were younger.

  • Maura Higgins and Curtis Pritchard 'forced to stay together for work' for months

  • Kimberley Walsh and Nadine Coyle 'end seven year feud after Girls Aloud split'

Maura, 29, and Curtis, 24, met on Love Island split after eight months together, with Maura breaking the sad news on Instagram .

But cracks had begun to show months ago and the pair were desperate to go their separate ways.

However, their management allegedly forced them to stay together in the public eye as it gave them the best opportunity for fame.

The Sun claimed their "money-hungry" management strongly recommended the couple put on a united front and make things work.

The publication alleged they had been faking their romance for three months.

There had already been whispers that things were bad behind closed doors, particularly after photos from the NTAs appeared to show a heated row between the pair.

A source told The Sun this fight in January was "the last straw".

They added: “Maura felt pressured to stick with him.

"They had booked jobs together, parties they had to attend."

In a video shared to AJ's girlfriend Abbie Quinnen's Instagram, Curtis dances with Amber, moves in close to the stunning blonde as they both thrust their hips towards each other.

They are joined by Strictly Come Dancing star Chloe Hewitt, who dances on Curtis' right side and performs a similar move as he faces away from her.

Then in a video shared to AJ's Instagram stories, Abbie can be seen tripping and falling onto Curtis' lap and straddling him as he sits on the floor.

Curtis touches her bum as he tries to break her fall and the group laughs.

The videos were posted just hours before Maura confirmed that she and Curtis had split up.

After the announcement it was claimed that Maura confronted her then-boyfriend over claims he cheated on her with Amber .

An insider told MailOnline : "Maura and Curtis hadn't been right since the night of the National Television Awards.

"First it was a video of Curtis looking close to a girl on New Year's Eve, which was published the same day as Maura's first live performance on Dancing on Ice. Then their fallout at the NTAs.

"But the tip of the iceberg for Maura was having to confront Curtis over a tweet which said he kissed Amber, who he performs with on tour. It seemed to be following a pattern."

Curtis' reps have denied that he cheated on Maura and the claims they faked their romance.
