Love Island's Maura Higgins celebrates first Valentine's Day with boyfriend Chris Taylor

Love Island's Maura Higgins and Chris Taylor pulled out all the stops as they marked their first Valentine's Day as a couple.

The loved-up couple celebrated the romantic holiday in style as Chris, 30, surprised his new girlfriend Maura with a candlelit dinner in an igloo their back garden.

The Irish beauty, 30, appeared to be delighted as her boyfriend documented her reaction to the stunning set-up on Instagram on Sunday night.

The igloo was decorated with fairy lights and elaborate pink and red balloons as a table for two was laid inside.

The elaborate table setting was complete with candlesticks, roses and a glowing neon pink love heart - a nod to the signage in the Love Island villa where they met.

In a sweet video, Chris filmed Maura's reaction to his surprise as she stood in front of the back door in a tight black dress, holding a glass of red wine.

Rose petals lay scattered on the floor as the curtains slowly opened to reveal the igloo in the garden.

The reality star put her hand to her mouth in shock and exclaimed: 'Are you joking!', as she stepped out into the garden as Celine Dion's My Heart Will Go On played in the background.

Another video on Maura's Instagram Story documented the inside of the igloo which showed the table strewn flowers, chocolate love hearts as well as a bottle of wine and a bottle of champagne.

Maura also shared a close up of her date night outfit in a mirror video filmed in the bathroom.

She struck a confident pose, showing off the black bandeau mini-dress with cut-outs around the midriff, which complimented her toned physique.

The reality stars appeared smitten as they issued gushing tributes to each other in posts on social media.
