We might have all been delighted when Love Island's Maura Higgins and Chris Taylor announced their relationship last week - but one person who certainly wasn't pleased is Maura's ex, Curtis Pritchard, who has said 'the signs were bloomin' there' (his words, not ours) all along.

Speaking out about the couple's romance in a scathing interview, he told The Sun he felt 'stabbed in the back' by his ex-girlfriend and his former friend Chris (who unfollowed Curtis online after he split from Maura). 'I feel betrayed by them both — two people I was very close to,' the dancer told the paper. 'When I saw the pictures, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t feel hurt. I was upset. How long has this truly been going on for?'

When Curtis and Maura split, seven months after appearing on Love Island, he was accused of cheating - and he says last week's news has made him question whether Maura stayed faithful. 'At the time I was accused of cheating, but I never did. I was always faithful to Maura,' he said. 'If you look back on everything — and I am looking back on it now — I’m like, "Curtis, all the signs were bloomin’ there, why didn’t you realise then?"'

The former islander also said Chris told him he fancied Maura while they were on the show - and revealed that Maura and Chris used to stay with each other. He added: 'When we were on Love Island, Chris was upset in the villa a lot. I supported him and backed him up. I was a really good person to Chris — and he told me then that he fancied Maura. But later on it all disappeared. He unfollowed me online, then Maura unfollowed me too. I was accused of cheating on Maura by someone online but when that happened, Maura was in a club with Chris. He was pouring drinks into her mouth, and Maura’s pouring drinks into Chris’s mouth — and they were staying together too at times like that.'

Well, as Curtis is set to appear on next year's Celebs Go Dating, let's hope he finds someone to forget all about it.
