LOVE ISLAND 2019 star Maura Higgins has divided the hearts of the nation during her time in the villa. However, one moment from tonight’s Unseen Bits episode left viewers reeling as Maura was caught up in an unfortunate blunder.
Maura, 28, has found herself at the centre of yet another romantic dilemma on Love Island, having recently voiced she has feelings for Curtis Pritchard, 23.
After Curtis’ former half-girlfriend Amy Hart, 27, left the ITV show earlier this week, Maura was sure to begin making her moves on the ballroom dancer.
Shortly after Amy’s departure from the villa, two new bombshells arrived in the form of Francesca Allen, 23, and Chris Taylor, 28.
Curtis and Maura were both picked by the new islanders to join them for a date just hours after their arrival and although viewers watched the romantic escapades unfold, they weren’t shown what happened beforehand.
Tonight’s episode of Love Island Unseen Bits saw a compilation of highlights from the week’s drama fans haven’t yet seen on the show.
One such moment was Maura and Curtis walking in slow motion towards the meeting place where they would have their dates with Francesca and Chris, respectively.
However, Maura unfortunately lost her footing at one point, falling to the floor with Curtis helping her get back on her feet.
Watching at home, viewers couldn’t believe the moment was missed from the main show and took to social media to voice their opinions on the unseen blunder.
One viewer posted on Twitter: “HOW DID MAURA FALLING OVER NOT MAKE THE MAIN SHOW?!?! Best moment of the series so far ngl #LoveIsland #UnseenBits.”(sic)
Another added: “Maura falling over whilst slo mo walking is just a permanent mood. #LoveIsland,” whilst a third wrote: “Wait did Maura actually just fall #loveisland.”
A fourth remarked: “Maura is my actual queen and seeing her fall and goof around with Curtis and Chris just made me love her more #LoveIsland.”
Maura’s antics weren’t the only moments to shock viewers tonight as during a conversation with the boys, Anton Danyluk, 24, was tested on knowledge about his partner, Belle Hassan, 21.
It emerged Belle’s name isn’t really Belle and when asked what her real name was, Anton was left stumped.
As much as Anton was perplexed, viewers were also confused with one commenting: “To be fair I thought Belle was just called Belle #LoveIsland.”
Things could be on the rocks for the couple following Anton’s actions in last night’s episode as he gave a shopkeeper his phone number whilst out getting ingredients for the evening’s meal.
Anton and Belle and currently in second place to win the show in latest odds from bookmakers Coral as fans of the reality programme put their support behind their favourite couples.
The duo are sat at 8-1, just behind front runners Tommy Fury, 20, and Molly-Mae Hague, 20, who are storming ahead at 1-8.
“Tommy and Molly-Mae have been the favourites to win Love Island from very early in this series and they are now streets ahead of the rest of the couples in the betting,” Coral spokesperson John Hill said.
With the final just two weeks away, will Tommy and Molly-Mae reign supreme, or can Anton and Belle take the crown?
Tomorrow night’s show will see one more couple dumped from the island, but could Anna Vasili, 29, and Jordan Hames, 24, be in hot water?
