Curtis Pritchard and Maura Higgins: Everything you need to know about the Love Island couple so far

Curtis Pritchard and Maura Higgins’ romance has been dogged with rumours of split and fakery, however despite this they are one of the few villa-made couples still together. The Love Island lovers began falling for each other after Curtis dumped air stewardess Amy Hart, and then outspoken Maura confessed her feelings.

Although the two first met under the Majorcan sun, it turned out Curtis had taken a fancy to his Irish sweetheart much before their poolside follies. When she first entered the villa he told fellow contestant Danny Williams that he had once tried to message her on Instagram.

"Maura, I messaged her on Instagram one time saying she was really good looking, the start of this year. She never replied to me!” he admitted.

Additionally, Dancing With The Stars judge Brian Redmond told The Mirror that Maura had been to the set of the Irish show a numerous times while Curtis was once of the dancers.

He said: "Maura knows the show because she has been a brand ambassador for Bellamianta, who are the tanning company for Dancing With The Stars.”

The couple didn’t sleep together while in the villa, but Maura confirmed that they did the week after leaving the show. She told The Sun on Sunday: “I’d give him a ten out of ten. We’ve had a good time. Was he worth the wait? Definitely, 100 per cent. I did try a few times in the villa, in the bedroom and on the outside bed."

“I tried but I didn’t succeed. Curtis said that it was for me and him alone, and he didn’t want to do anything in there. And that’s absolutely fine.

“Actually I’m glad now that we waited, because it made it even more special.”

For the next few months the pair continued dating but did not make their relationship official. Many fans were even worried that they had split as they were spending a lot of time in separate countries, with Maura in Dublin and Curtis frequently in the north of England.

People on social media wrote such things as: "Are you & Maura still together?" or ”Are you and Maura the next couple to split?! Don’t see you together very much anymore.”

However, in an exclusive interview with OK! magazine Maura has finally revealed the two are official. “He asked and I said yes obviously,” said the brunette beauty. “He took me away for a weekend break, and he asked me out over dinner in London the next day,” said the 28-year-old.
