Who is Maura Higgins? What's her age and background?

Maura, 29, is a model and reality star from Longford, Ireland. She was a latecomer in the 2019 series of Love Island, and became a hit with viewers due to her humour and outspoken nature.

After leaving the show, she has forged a modelling career - appearing in her own campaign for Ann Summers.

Does Maura have a boyfriend?

She does indeed! Maura ended up getting together with Curtis Pritchard on Love Island - following his tumultuous relationship with Amy Hart.

The pair are still together, and Curtis - who is currently appearing in a Pantomime at the Wycombe Swan - recently opened up about the struggles of their long distance romance to Lorraine.

"We haven't had time to spend with everyone, and Maura. I haven't seen Maura in a little bit," he said.

"We're lucky because we have mobile phones so we can stay in contact so easily but it is a shame."

He also told The Sun that he doesn't "let anyone else influence the relationship", adding: "When we came out everyone was saying 'why aren't you making it official? Why aren't you posting more on social media?'

"We just want to chill out and take it easy. We've only known each other three-and-a-half months. We are just enjoying what's what.
