Maura and Curtis in fake row as they first met years before Love Island

Maura Higgins and Curtis Pritchard are embroiled in a fakery storm after it was revealed they first met years before Love Island.

When the Irish beauty entered the villa this summer, Curtis admitted he knew her and had even sent her a message via Instagram .

Maura claimed to have no idea who he was and had never seen his DM.

However, it's now emerged that Maura did know Curtis before Love Island as she'd visited the set of his Irish TV show Dancing With The Stars several times.

Curtis worked as a pro dancer on the show, which is huge in Maura's native Ireland.

Dancing With The Stars judge Brian Redmond has confirmed the brunette beauty had been to the show on a number of occasions and set her sights on Curtis years ago.

Brian told the Irish Mirror: "Maura knows the show because she has been a brand ambassador for Bellamianta, who are the tanning company for Dancing With The Stars.

“I believe Maura had been out a few times to watch the show and apparently she and Curtis had cast eyes at each other across a busy dance floor years ago.

“She knows the show and being with Curtis she obviously knows what it involves. It would be great to have her on but probably not this year.

“But I’m sure she will be supporting him in the new series so we will wait and see what happens.”

The couple were rumoured to have split this week after they went quite a while apart.
