Love Island's Maura Higgins has shocked the nation by announcing her 'feelings' for Curtis Pritchard – just days after he shattered Amy Hart's heart by dumping her with the words: "I can't see myself marrying or having children with you."
Maura let slip that she fancied Curtis on Sunday's episode, and followed it up with an awkward chat with Amy last night where the Irish grid girl was unrepentant about going to Curtis first with her bombshell.
"I hope it all works out for you and you get married and have kids together," Amy told her love rival savagely – but Maura merely said they hadn't been friends, and therefore she owed Amy nothing.
So just what does Maura see in Curtis? She's told Lucie Donlan she thinks the ballroom dancer is "manly" and "funny", adding: "He's obviously gorgeous. He's the whole package for me."
But Amy doesn't believe her, saying in a previous episode that Curtis certainly isn't manly and casting doubt on Maura's version of events.
"From day one, I said that he [Curtis] would have been one of the guys I would have gone for," Maura told her last night, after Amy accused her of sabotaging her relationship with Curtis in order to swoop in and have him for herself.
Maura then brought up the DM Curtis had sent her a year ago, accusing Amy of never opening up to their friendship because she had an issue with Curtis fancying Maura first.
And viewers certainly aren't buying Maura's story, believing the gorgeous Islander has an ulterior motive for cracking on with Curtis.
Many think she's only admitting her feelings to him now for fame, so she can stay in the villa longer.
One wrote: "So are we all just going to go along with the fact that neither Curtis nor Maura actually fancy each other and think they still have a shot at the 50k?"
Another pointed out: "With Maura it's literally, who's left single that I can crack on with Like hell did she fancy Curtis from th start."
"Maura is trying so hard to get Curtis to fancy her just stay in the villa, it's actually embarrassing," wrote a third.
A fourth said: "Am I the only 1 that thinks Maura is playing a huge game? Her reaction when Curtis was tlkin to caroline about how he had his head turned before Amy came bck 2 the villa. Maura was fuming with him.. then 1 morning "lightbulb" lets say I fancy curtis now for the 50k."
Many more flagged how Maura had no shame in trying it on with Tommy Fury when she first arrived, despite the boxer being happily coupled up with Molly-Mae Hague.
"I'm with Amy, Maura had no qualms trying it with Tommy so if she really did fancy Curtis since day 1, why didn't she try it with him??" said one.
Another tweeted: "Maura did fancy Curtis from day 1 tho but saw Tommy as the easy option cuz they were serious back then."
