When was Maura Higgins on Love Island?

Maura finished in fourth place on the fifth series of Love Island 2019.

She said before entering the villa: “My worst trait would be that I talk over people… a lot! I even notice myself doing it.”

Maura also said she was looking for an honest and confident guy who can make her laugh, and it appeared Curtis Pritchard did just that in the villa as he impressed her with his latin ballroom moves.

The pair weren’t originally paired up, but sparks flew after Curtis broke up with Amy Hart in the villa.

After finishing fourth place and heading back to England together, these two looked as though their relationship was going from strength to strength.

But at the beginning of 2020, the pair decided to split due to Curtis being accused of cheating – something which he strongly denies.
