LOVE Island star Maura Higgins has opened up about her sex life with former boyfriend Curtis Pritchard, saying it was ‘very healthy’.
The stunning brunette made the revelation on her new reality show.
ITV2’s Maura Higgins: You’re Joking Me! was filmed before the pair split in March.
In the show, which aired last night, the 29-year-old is put through her paces for the gruelling 5km Spartan obstacle course around Twickenham Stadium.
Viewers watch as the Irish beauty is guided by personal trainer Paul Olima through four weeks of intense preparation – which included a ballet lesson taught by 85-year-old Esther Fairfax.
This led to a rather awkward exchange as the teacher asks Maura if she has a boyfriend and a “healthy sex life?”
To which cheeky Maura replied: “Yeah, very healthy!”
Then Esther went on to share the bedroom benefits of the pelvic exercises they’d been practising.
“The tilt is very, very beneficial for sex. The tilt is the essence of good posture, good sex and happy days,” confirmed the teacher as Maura looked on smiling.
Another scene sees quick-witted Maura take part in a rugby training session, and after being thrown in the air by burly players to catch the rugby ball, she quips: “At least I’ve always been good at grabbing balls!”
Maura started dating Curtis, 24, after a stint on Love Island last July.
However it was revealed that they had split in March after a series of blazing rows and public bust-ups.
As Maura’s show was filmed last Autumn, Curtis himself makes an appearance for what appears to be a romantic rickshaw date.
But it turns out to be another spot of training organised by her mentor Paul – and Maura has to cycle the rickshaw around the park herself.
“My legs are like jelly and I’ve got frostbite. Every time I think about it I actually cry. I don’t wanna do it,” complained Maura.
Curtis said supportively: “Whatever you do I’m proud of you.”
Meanwhile Curtis is currently enjoying a romantic mini-break with the dancer he was accused of cheating on Maura Higgins with.
The Love Island star is on a beachside break in Cornwall with Amber Pierson, his brother AJ and the Strictly star’s girlfriend Abbie Quinnen.
The group have been sharing their trip with fans on Instagram – but Amber was only spotted after eagle-eyed fans noticed a post of them walking together shared by best pal Abbie.
A source close to Curtis insists they’re just friends.
HOAR Online previously revealed that Curtis had grown close to blonde bombshell Amber, a fellow professional dancer.
