Ex-Love Island stars Maura Higgins and Curtis Pritchard have confirmed news of a breakup, announcing that they have decided to part ways after eight months of dating.

Fans have been sceptical as to whether the couple were still together for some time now, noting that the twosome hadn’t been pictured together in over a month. And it seems that their suspicions were right.

Maura announced the split in a statement posted to her social media, saying:

“Curtis and I have made the decision to separate. We enjoyed a great experience from our time in the villa and want to thank everyone for supporting our relationship.

There is no easy way to get through a breakup and no bad feeling on either side. We tried to make it work but it wasn’t to be and I wish Curtis nothing but the best for the future.”

The duo first met on the summer edition of Love Island, getting together after Curtis cut things off with previous flame Amy Hart.

Known for her outspoken ways, the Longford lady wasted no time in revealing her crush after the Casa Amor drama played out and the couple made it all the way to the final, eventually coming in fourth place.

Arguably one of the most loved islanders in the show’s history, Maura has been in hot demand since leaving the villa – becoming a Boohoo brand ambassador, appearing as a presenter on ITV’s This Morning and even taking part in Dancing On Ice.

Maura and Curtis’ recent split means that Molly Mae Hague and Tommy Fury are now the only contestants still together from the 2019 series, despite narrowly losing out on first place to Amber Gill and Irishman Greg O’Shea.
