Love Island’s Amy snaps at Maura for splitting her up from Curtis so she could ‘swoop in’

LOVE Island’s Amy Hart accuses Maura Higgins of splitting her up from Curtis Pritchard on purpose so she could ‘swoop in’ and steal him.

The air hostess was left heartbroken last week when Curtis, 23, dumped her because he couldn’t guarantee his head wouldn’t be turned while in the villa.

Amy, 26, was about to tell the ballroom dancer she loved him, but as she sobbed to her friends, Maura bluntly told her Curtis obviously didn’t love her back.

Fast forward a couple of days, and the Irish beauty shocked viewers by revealing she has a crush on Curtis, before revealing the bombshell news to the man himself on last night’s show.

Tonight, after speaking with Curtis about how she feels, Maura, 28, decides to tell some of the other girls about her conversation with him.

Speaking with Anna, Molly-Mae and Lucie on the bean bags, Maura says: “I told Curtis I had feelings for him.”

Maura explains she has had feelings for Curtis since she arrived in the villa, but didn’t want to express how she felt as Curtis and Amy had a strong romantic connection.

Anna and Molly-Mae are taken aback by Maura’s confession, with Anna saying “Do you not think you should have told Amy?”

Maura says: “Right now, I don’t want to hurt Amy.”

Anna reinforces her point that Maura should have spoken with Amy, while Lucie interjects and explains this is a similar situation to when she told Tommy she had feelings for him.

Anna replies: “I’ll tell you straight. You [Lucie] should have told Molly before you told Tommy, and you [Maura] should have told Amy before you told Curtis. If I ended up liking one of your girl’s man, I would go to you first.”

Maura decides it is time to tell Amy about her conversation with Curtis.

Maura says to Amy: “From day one, I said that he [Curtis] would have been one of the guys I would have gone for.

I do fancy him. I’m an honest person, I can’t hold back, so I did tell him that I liked him.”

Shocked, Amy replies: “But not honest enough to come and tell me first that you were going to do it?”

Maura responds: “When I came in here, I felt that out of all the girls here, you were the one that wouldn’t let me in.

Hitting back, Amy says: “A lot of stuff makes sense to me now. You were one of the most vocal that he didn’t deserve a second chance.”

Maura replies: “If you honestly think that I’ve done that to swoop in, you’re very wrong.”

But is Curtis interested in getting to know Maura in a romantic way?

Love Island continues tonight at 9pm on ITV2.
