Dancing With The Stars' Curtis Pritchard dated his dance partner Emily Barker before appearing on Love Island
Curtis and Emily were both professional dancers on Dancing with the Stars Ireland. They were reportedly dance partners as children, before getting together after meeting again when they were adults.
Emily and Curtis worked together on Dancing with the Stars in 2017 and 2018, but they ended their relationship in 2018.
Neither party publicly gave a reason for their split, however the Mirror reports that at the time Emily 'liked' a tweet saying: "Don't feel sad over someone who gave up on you, feel sorry for them because they gave up on someone who would never have given up on them."
Speaking about his dating life in his pre-entry interview for Love Island, Curtis said: “I have lived a very sheltered life because of my dancing.
“I’ve not done a lot of going out partying, going on dates because I haven’t had time to.
"Being truthful I’ve probably been on less than 10 dates, maybe five dates. I have never met anyone online, I’ve never used a dating app."
Curtis is currently loved-up with Amy Hart, and the pair recently spent a steamy night in the hideaway together.
Tommy Fury received a text saying: "The hideaway is open tonight.
"Please choose a lucky couple to spend the night alone.”
The islanders chose Curtis and Amy, as they are the most solid of all the pairings, and the couple were seen getting close under the sheets.
You can catch Love Island every week day and every Sunday at 9PM on ITV2.
