Every year, during Love Island, the country comes together online.
The running Twitter and Instagram commentary is often the best part of the show,and the memes just the icing on the cake. This year was particularly good, because it wasn’t just us layman’s narrating the ridiculous drama of the season but also celebrities – in particular, about their love of Maura Higgins.
Maura received the celebrity seal of approval from Lena Dunham, Amy Schumer as well as a whole host of British TV personalities. And while we may have got to witness her entire Summer in painful detail, we never got to see her reaction to the hilarious memes that will likely follow her entire career. That my friends, is the true let down of Love Island.
That’s why when we had a chance to meet Maura and get her on video, we decided to show her all of our favourite memes from this season of Love Island and capture her raw, unfiltered reaction. Surprisingly, she hadn’t seen any of them – not the Lena Dunham love, nor the hilarious image of Curtis looking terrified as he enters an Irish pub for the first time, not even when B&Q roasted Tom Walker.
So strap in folks, here’s Maura’s first reaction to all the hilariously savage things you guys tweeted about her and Curtis Pritchard. Plus, her adorable laugh at pretty much all of them.
So there you have it, she has no words for Lena Dunham (we’re not convinced she knew who she was, to be honest) and doesn’t believe she had any sort of Danny from Grease impact on Curtis. Our favourite reaction? Her seeing Tom advertising plumbing products. We want to have it framed too, Maura.
