LOVE Island’s Maura Higgins revealed her romance with Curtis Pritchard was doomed from the moment they left the villa.
The Dancing On Ice star, 29, opened up about her relationship with the dancer, 24, and how their busy schedules broke them up.
Despite insisting she was “besotted” with Curtis, not being able to see each other took its toll.
She told HOAR’s Fabulous Magazine: “Curtis and I barely saw each other.
“At the beginning it was very, very hard because I was so besotted with him, and we never got to see each other.
“When we did, it was really nice because you got the time to miss somebody.
“You know when you’re in a relationship and you know someone’s day to day? We were that busy that we didn’t, and it was strange.
“When I started on Dancing On Ice, we were doing really well. He was coming to some of the shows and stuff, but we were still very, very busy and it just took a toll on the relationship in the end.”
The pair dated for eight months after finding each other on the ITV2 dating show last year.
However, the Irish beauty has already moved on, adding: “I fall in love quickly, but I fall out of love even quicker. I tend to get over someone in my head before I actually dump them. Its good, isn’t it?”
Maura announced earlier this month she broke up with Curtis Pritchard amid speculation she had fallen for her Dancing On Ice partner Alex Demetriou.
However, she rubbished rumours she was hooking up with Alex – who is wed to fellow Dancing On Ice star Carlotta Edwards – saying they are “just friends”.
She said: “Alex and I are so close – we’ve trained together for months.
“Obviously we’re going to be close, exactly like every other partner on the show. But that’s it.
“We’re very close friends and we get on well. We have such a laugh and we are still going to be friends. No matter what’s said, I’m not going to be afraid to hang out with him.
“I’ve said to him: ‘I still want to go ice skating.’”
