Curtis Pritchard flies off on tour with blonde dancer Amber just days after split with Maura Higgins


CURTIS Pritchard has headed off on tour with blonde dancer Amber Pierson just days after his split from Maura Higgins.

The 24-year-old is joining his brother AJ – and a series of back-up dancers – on stage around the country, starting in Aberdeen tonight.

This morning Amber –the dancer Maura accused Curtis of cheating with – shared a picture of herself ready to go and then a video of the gang boarding the plane.

She didn’t tag Curtis into her post so it is unclear whether he caught the same flight as the rest of the group, which also included his brother.

The Sun Online previously revealed that Curtis had grown close to blonde bombshell Amber, a fellow professional dancer.

We reported how Maura confronted Curtis over claims he had cheated before their split.

The alarm was raised when Maura, 29, was tagged in a tweet that said the ballroom dancer, 24, had been “hugging and kissing” a blonde beauty from his live tour with Strictly sibling AJ.

Writing from an anonymous account, the tweet stated the Curtis had got up close and personal with Amber Pierson on Saturday night when Maura was partying elsewhere with friends.

It said: “Curtis and Maura are definitely not together. They are at different night clubs. Curtis is with the dance crew and is hugging and kissing @amberpierson”

Following the tweet, Maura announced the couple had split in an emotional post to fans on Instagram – but not before having it out with Curtis.

A source said: “After their separate nights out on Saturday, Maura tried to text Curtis but he didn’t reply. He called her instead and said it wasn’t true.

“It wasn’t enough for Maura so they came to a mutual decision to end their relationship.”

Last night Curtis appeared to have a dig at Maura as he posed up for a family photo with his proud parents  and AJ ahead of the tour.

The star wrote alongside the snap: “#Family. The people that always support me …”

His brother commented beneath his photo: “Always Support each other.. ”

Maura announced their split earlier this week
