The 29-year-old beauty confirmed earlier this week she had split from Curtis Pritchard – who she met on Love Island last summer – and now she’s single, producers of the E4 show are keen to help her find love again.
A source told The Sun Online:
‘Maura is exactly what Celebs Go Dating is all about.
‘She’s fun, feisty and is guaranteed to offer loads of entertainment for viewers.
‘Now she’s single she’s free to do what she wants and this could be the perfect show for her to finally move on from Curtis’.
Maura confirmed she had split from Curtis on her Instagram Story earlier this week.
‘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’.
Insiders predicted the break-up would be particularly “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.
