EXCLUSIVE: ‘It’s a massive kick in the teeth for her’: Furious Maura Higgins claims ‘she should have trusted her gut’ after ex Curtis Pritchard is pictured kissing blonde dancer
Maura Higgins has reportedly hit back after her ex Curtis Pritchard was pictured kissing the dancer he was rumoured to be cheating on her with.
A source close to the Love Island star, 29, told MailOnline she views his cosy exchange with Amber Pierson as ‘a massive kick in the teeth,’ and believes she ‘should have trusted her gut’ following claims about their relationship in the past.
Maura and Curtis called it quits in March just eight months after leaving the Love Island villa, with sources claiming at the time the Irish reality star felt pressured to maintain the romance to boost their profile, which the dancer strongly denies.

What’s going on? Amid the reports Maura also took to Twitter to share a cryptic tweet about ‘the truth coming out’

Mere hours after Curtis was pictured kissing blonde dancer Amber, Maura also took to Twitter on Saturday to cryptically write: ‘The truth always comes out in the end.’
Love Island star Curtis previously hit back at claims he had cheated on his ex-girlfriend Maura, with Amber, who also called the speculation a ‘complete lie.’
However it appears the pair have got close in recent months as they were spotted kissing as they walked through a park in images obtained by The Sun.

Curtis packed on the PDA as he wrapped his arm around Amber and leaned in for a kiss. Amber is also a professional dancer and a model based in London.
An insider told the publication: ‘It’s game over for Curtis and Amber pretending they are just pals. Their ”friends” line fooled no one.’
Curtis is said to have taken Amber out on a double date on Tuesday, where they enjoyed dinner with his brother AJ, 25, and his girlfriend Abbie Quinnen.
Amber was also spotted out on a trip to Cornwall with the group last week. Scrupulous fans spotted her next to Curtis in a series of snaps shared to Instagram.
The revelation will likely come as a blow to Curtis’ Love Island ex, Maura, whom he split from in March.
MailOnline has contacted Maura’s representatives for comment, a spokseperson for Curtis was unavailable for comment.

Their relationship was rumoured to be on the rocks after speculation surfaced that Curtis was getting overly friendly with the blonde beauty.
His Irish ex had reportedly confronted him after she noticed him getting to close to comfort with his dancer ‘friend.’
The red flags went up for Maura when she was alerted to an anonymous tweet, saying that Curtis was spotted ‘hugging and kissing’ the blonde.
Following the speculation, Amber dismissed claims she’d had a fling with Curtis behind Maura’s back calling them ‘complete lies,’ but branded the Love Island hunk ‘a lovely and talented guy’.
Taking to Instagram, she wrote: ‘I didn’t want to speak out about this, but I feel I have to as I have been receiving a few abusive messages recently regarding what’s been in the papers.
‘To be very clear, Curtis and I have never been together. We are simply friends and dancer partners! There are 13 dancers going on tour, and I am one of them.
‘The “cheating” allegations this week are out of the blue and complete lies.
‘I wanted no part in this but what I will say is Curtis is genuinely a lovely and talented guy, who doesn’t deserve any of this. Hope that’s set the record straight and we can move on. Amber x.’
Wandering eye? Curtis and Maura’s relationship was rumoured to be on the rocks after speculation surfaced that Curtis was getting overly friendly with the blonde beauty
Curtis and Maura found love towards the end of the 2019 ITV series and continued to date for eight months after their exit before their relationship came to end in 2020.
It was claimed at the time the couple rowed over her friendship with her Dancing On Ice partner Alexander Demetriou.
The Sun reported that Alex’s friendly relationship with Maura caused arguments with his Dancing On Ice skater wife Carlotta Edwards.
Carlotta and Alex have since announced the break down of their marriage, but Maura has always insisted she is just friends with the professional skater.
