He was snapped partying with her this weekend while Maura was just miles away at another club. Curtis’ PR claims they’re just friends.

The couple hadn’t been seen together since 28 January, when The Sun’s Bizarre column witnessed them having a blazing row at the NTA’s.

At the time, they insisted they were still together – but weren’t seen together again. On 8 February, Maura wished Curtis happy birthday online, and he praised her on Valentine’s Day using an old photo.

Maura and Curtis were together for seven months, having first fallen in love during last summer’s Love Island.

Irish beauty Maura had her sights set on boxer Tommy Fury who was in a happy relationship with Molly-Mae Hague.

In a late series twist, Maura revealed she had grown feelings for Curtis in the villa and found the courage to confess to him after his relationship with Amy Hart failed to withstand the dreaded Casa Amor week.
