Prior to entering the villa, all the contestants go into hiding and are cut off from the outside world, which is what the singletons will be currently doing ahead of Sunday nights launch.

While most people are only in lock down for a few days, the Irish beauty was kept hidden for two week as she arrived late to the show.

Discussing what happens on todays This Morning, she said: They are in lockdown now with a chaperone.

I got my phone taken off me on the shuttle bus to the terminal when I landed. I didnt think it would be that quickly.

Before I went on, I was promised I would be in the villa in the first three days. Two weeks and three days I was on lockdown.

In the hotel, no phone, no TV, no anything with a chaperone. On the bad days, you can sit in a room with the chaperone on her laptop but not on your own.

Maura caused quite the stir when she arrived in the villa and ended up coupled up with Curtis Pritchard.

Curtis was with fellow Islander Amy at the time and broke her heart when he picked Maura over her.

Maura and Curtis are however still together and both as busy as ever with work.

Maura is currently appearing on Dancing On Ice and is set to skate for the first time this weekend.

Speaking about her performance with pro skater Alexander Demetriou, she said: I am definitely a nervous wreck but so so excited, in the very early days you can see how bad I am.

I feel under pressure now everyone keeps saying to me [that she is very good]. I have put in the work!

The new series of Love Island starts Sunday 9pm on ITV2.
