She certainly looks different
She has wowed fans on Love Island 2019, but many have noted how her appearance has changed from before entering the villa, even speculating that she has had plastic surgery to look how she does today.
People have commented that she looks very different from her pre-Love Island snaps to how she looks on the show today.
This is how she looked in 2012:
However, Maura Higgins' mum has come to her defence saying that she only looks different due to ageing.
She says: "She’s 28 now. She has matured. She never got plastic surgery ever. The only thing she ever got done – and she never hid it, she had it up on her own Instagram – was she got some lip filler.
"Because she had quite thin lips. And that was the height of it. So that’s the only thing. She never had plastic surgery ever. That’s terrible stuff."
She has however confirmed that she has had hair extensions in this Instagram post:
Maura has caused a stir since joining the villa as she made her move on boxer Tommy Fury after she repeatedly tried to kiss him despite his resistance. The 20-year-old decided to stick with Molly-Mae during re-coupling, leaving the bombshell single in the villa as she was whisked off to enjoy dates with Tom Walker and fellow island newbie Jordan Hames.
