The former Love Island stars met on the ITV2 dating show just eight months ago, but they’ve now called time on their romance, with the 29-year-old ex-grid girl confirming the news on her Instagram Story on Monday (02.03.20).
‘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 break up 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 news was first reported by MailOnline, after a source claimed the breakup would be “tough” on Maura.
An insider said:
‘It’s going to be a tough time for Maura. She really tried to make things work with Curtis but unfortunately they’ve gone their separate ways. Most of her family and close friends are in Ireland, which will make this time even more difficult for her’.
The publication also claimed Maura’s representative had confirmed the news.
Maura and Curtis, 24, hadn’t been pictured together since they hosted the National Television Awards’ backstage interviews on January 28, where they were reported to have had an argument.
The split means Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury are the only couple from last year’s Love Island still together, after winners Amber Gill and Greg O’Shea were one of the first pairs to split outside of the sunny villa.
