Love Island’s Maura cosies up to mystery man amid rumours she’s SPLIT from Curtis
Updated: Sep 5, 2019
LOVE Island's Maura Higgins cosied up to a mystery man on a wild night out amid rumours her relationship with Curtis Pritchard is over.
The smartly-dressed blond man, who bears a striking resemblance to the ballroom dancer, was seen with his arm around the Irish star before they went to a cab at 3am.
The 28-year-old returned to the UK from Ireland on Saturday, declaring: "I'm back" and wasted no time getting stuck into a boozy night with her sister Becki.
But while her Love Island boyfriend Curtis - who Maura hasn't been pictured for days - was nowhere to be seen, she seemed close to the unidentified man.
The former grid girl was seen puffing on a cigarette outside Mahiki in London's Mayfair while he rested his hand in the small of her back.
Another picture shows him with his arm around her waist while she faced towards him as they stood in the street.
Dressed in a sexy red PVC outfit and silver heels, Maura is seen standing beside him outside the famous celeb hangout.
The man - who was wearing a light blue shirt, checked trousers and white trainers - accompanied her as she left the restaurant.
He is pictured still with his arm around her as she walked out brandishing her phone and was by her side as she clambered into a minicab.
In one bizarre shot he even covers her face with a hand, presumably to hide her from a photographer.
Meanwhile, mystery continues to surround her relationship status with Curtis, who she hasn't been seen with for days.
A photo she posted of herself at Mahiki included plenty of comments from people asking the likes of: "Whats happened to Curtis 😢."
Another begged: "Please tell me are you still with Curtis Maura? Because you two are one of my favourite couples."
Others were desperate to know: "Have u and Curtis split?"
In fact, while Maura shared pictures of her meeting up with her sister and heading out on the town, Curtis posted that he was at his mum's house helping dig up a tree.
However, he did comment on one of her selfies 11 hours after she posted it, writing: "Wow you look incredible 😘 ."
Maura was in London with her model sister Becki, where they went to the fancy STK steakhouse before moving on to cocktails at Mahiki.
She posted a picture of her pornstar martini beside her YSL handbag before asking a man loading ice into a glass: "Are you feeding a bunch of animals or what's the craic?"
Maura and Curtis came fourth on the show but have struggled to spend quality time together outside of their work commitments.
He has been on the move almost non-stop since the show, popping up across Britain and even in Mallorca at Gringos Bingo where he tooka girl upstage for dance.
