She then took to Instagram stories to admit she “couldn’t be dealing with the s**t” and to prove it wasn’t fake, she shared a behind-the-scene video.

“So my recent post that I just uploaded, yeah I’ve deleted it,” she said, “I just couldn’t be dealing with the s**t, I just actually couldn’t be dealing with the s**t.”

Mimicking the comments, she quipped: “‘Oh that’s so photoshopped, uhhhhh’.”

“Get over it! And by the way, it’s not actually photoshopped, yeah there’s different lighting on it because I put a filter on it and just to prove you are wrong, I’m going to upload the video on my story, just to prove that I actually am fantastic.”

The reality star admitted she was “losing her marbles”

Maura’s post often lead to criticism from trolls

Maura, who found fame on the 2019 series of Love Island, then shared the Boomerang video before returning to filming her message, retorting: “I cannot stop laughing.

“I feel like lockdown is sending us all crazy. It’s just not like me to delete a photo just when I get some abuse so yeah I’ll put it back up and deal with the abuse – I always have done.

“It’s just the lockdown, we’re all losing our marbles, but send the hate my way.”

The Love Island beauty had slipped into the leopard print two-piece and took a cheeky mirror shot.

Maura recently split from boyfriend Curtis Pritchard

Alex Demetriou and Carlotta Edwards are ‘taking a break’ from their four-year marriage
The marriage crisis started as he became close to dance partner Maura Higgins

The sexy shot comes after Dancing On Ice pros Carlotta Edwards and Alex Demetriou split up — after he became close to celeb partner Maura.

The professional skaters are said to be “taking a break” from their four-year marriage but pals fear it is all over — amid claims that Alex, 28, is in constant contact with Maura, 29.

Carlotta, 30, has taken off her wedding ring and flown back to her native Canada while Alex — who removed his band in January — has remained in the UK.

The couple’s ­relationship started to crumble as Alex danced with Maura on the ITV series earlier this year.
