The 24-year-old dancer struck up a close friendship with the boxer during their time in the Love Island villa in 2019, but Curtis has now suggested that their on-screen bromance has already fizzled out.
Speaking to his brother AJ on their ‘AJ vs Curtis’ podcast, Curtis shared:
‘If you want the honest, honest truth, I haven’t spoken to (Tommy) in ages actually.
‘I got a new phone, then I lost his number. I have messaged him on Instagram a couple of times, but I’ve been pied off by him’.
However, AJ came to the defence of the sports star, suggesting he probably hasn’t seen his brother’s initial message.
‘If Tommy is anything like you with his messages on Instagram, you don’t even look at yours’.
Then, Curtis acknowledged that Tommy has a reputation for being bad at responding to messages on social media.
The former Love Island star – who dated Maura Higgins in the villa – also conceded that the heavyweight boxer may currently be preoccupied with his ongoing training camp.
‘I do remember he wasn’t very good at replying when we did [ITV2’s The Boxer & The Ballroom Dancer].
‘I remember Chloe, his dancer partner, was messaging Tommy going, “Where are you? You are an hour late for rehearsals,” and absolutely nothing came back from Tommy. He wasn’t even there. I think he was still in bed sometimes.
‘So we are friends but we haven’t spoken for ages. He’s also in a training camp at the moment’.
