Maura Higgins has reportedly been accused of “running a smear campaign” against ex boyfriend Curtis Pritchard.

Maura, 29, cryptically hit out at her ex beau Curtis, 24, after he was reportedly seen kissing backing dancer Amber Pierson this week, who he denied cheating on Maura with during their time together.

Love Island veteran Maura threw shade at her ex as she tweeted: “The truth always comes out in the end.”

Irish stunner Maura reportedly confronted Curtis after a Twitter user claimed the dancer had been unfaithful to her with Amber, who worked as a backing dancer on Curtis and AJ Pritchard’s dance tour.

Both Curtis and Amber denied the claims at the time in March, but the pair have since reportedly shared a kiss together.

Now, a friend of Curtis’ has accused Maura of using the rumours as a “tactical diversion” from reports of a romance between Maura and her Dancing on Ice partner Alexander Demetriou, which the pair denied earlier this year.

The insider said: “The claims earlier this year that Curtis was with Amber whilst still with Maura were simply a tactical diversion by her to take the heat off the rumours circulating about the close relationship she had with her dance partner Alex.”

They added to MailOnline: “Maura and Alex both swore nothing was going on, yet Alex split from his wife soon after the show finished in suspicious circumstances which got everyone taking.”


Speaking about the rumours Curtis was unfaithful to Maura, the insider insisted they were untrue.

They said: “They toured together without any form of spark, it was only afterwards that this occurred.

“Any suggestion otherwise is just a smear campaign by Maura to cause harm to Curtis and cause him further upset and hurt.

“The truth will all come out in time, but we all back Curtis and support his version of events. Those in glass houses shouldn't throw bricks!”


Maura and Alexander denied they were romantically involved earlier this year, after Alexander, 28, was photographed leaving the brunette’s apartment in March – shortly after her split from Curtis.

She wrote to her 154,000 Twitter followers: “2020 & yet again a man & woman can not be friends!

“Me & Alex are friends + joe and I are friends! YES I have more male friends than female! GET OVER IT!!!” [sic]

Later, Alexander said his close friendship with Maura left his wife Carlotta Edwards jealous.

Speaking to The Sun, he explained: “I think Carlotta found it hard to see me close, yet so professional, with Maura. It had an impact on her.

“I told Carlotta we needed a break but I knew it was for good. I didn't want to lead her on any more. She was shocked at how ­serious it was.”
