Love Island’s Maura Higgins denies sleeping with Greg O’Shea after the pair were accused of ‘flirting’ on a night out in Dublin following his split from Amber Gill
Maura Higgins has denied sleeping with fellow Love Islander Greg O’Shea after the pair were recently said to have flirted on a night out in Dublin.
The grid girl, 28, who is currently being romanced by her Love Island beau Curtis Pritchard, 23, insisted she and Greg are just friends.
She told The Sun: ‘It’s 2019. Just because I’m photographed doesn’t mean I’m flirting or sleeping with him. If I was photographed with a girl nothing would be said about it.’

She added: ‘It’s a bit ridiculous. I’m with Curtis, as everyone knows, and Greg is a friend.
Fellow Love Islanders were said to have described Maura and Greg flirting as ‘disrespectful’ as he had split with girlfriend Amber Gill the day before.
But the Irish beauty insisted there was nothing to apologise for.
She said: ‘No, not at all. Why would I have to speak to her about it? Greg is a friend and did nothing wrong. Greg is a friend of mine from the villa. There’s nothing to say.’

Greg and Amber called it quits just 39 days after they were crowned the winners of Love Island.
Amber was said to be blindsided by the breakup and pulled out of an appearance on RTE’s The Late Late Show with Greg at the last minute, where he was interviewed alongside Maura.
Curtis recently accompanied Maura to her Boohoo clothing launch held at Nobu Shoreditch in London on Thursday.
Maura put on a leggy display in a tiny plunging pink blazer dress with a matching belt to cinch in her waist.

She teamed the item of clothing with a pair of thigh-high snakeskin heeled boots for her night.
Meanwhile, Curtis looked dapper in an all-black ensemble of a jumper, jeans and patent leather brogues, he added a pop of colour with a silk purple neck scarf.
The professional dancer, whose brother is Strictly Come Dancing star AJ Pritchard, also took to his Instagram to share a collection of pictures and videos.
In one clip, before the event, he said: ‘Maura I am here, waiting for you. You’re currently in interviews at the moment and I just want to say congratulations on your new stuff, I can’t wait to see you darling.’
Another video saw Curtis and Maura reunited, as he said: ‘Here she is, beautiful, it’s her night tonight. A special night. I’m proud of you, very proud of you,’ before kissing her.

After finishing in fourth on Love Island in July, Curtis and Maura have been dating but have yet to call themselves boyfriend and girlfriend.
As well as Maura’s success, Curtis’ career has gone from strength to strength since leaving the Love Island villa, as the hunk has landed a role as the receptionist for the new series of The Greatest Dancer.
He will also appear as a choreographer on RuPaul’s Drag Race UK with his brother AJ, when the BBC series kicks off in the autumn.
