It's no secret how close the Pritchard brothers are. Ever since Curtis Pritchard was confirmed to appear on this year's series of Love Island, Strictly Come Dancing star AJ Pritchard has been fully supportive.

However, after Curtis' head turned in the villa, which led him to breaking Amy Hart's heart, AJ has been on This Morning, condemning his brother's 'brutal' behaviour.

Appearing alongside his mum Debi and his dad Adrian, AJ told Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield, "Maybe he was a little too brutally honest, the way he let her down.

"He could have let her down a bit more gently. He doesn't process things. He just rushed things."

Whilst Curtis' mum thinks his feeling for Amy were real, AJ likened his brother's relationship with Amy to a 'holiday romance'.

He said, “For me I think, Curtis is Curtis. He is so honest, sometimes a little bit too brutally honest the way he let her down. But the thing is, he was on holiday getting sunburned, eating too much and everything is done for him so there was that holiday romance.

"Then when he went into Casa Amor it gave him the chance to act relaxed, give himself a bit more time to think and the opportunity actually was maybe, ‘I’m not feeling the same amount of love for Amy that maybe Amy was.’ He could’ve let her down a bit softer.”

Meanwhile, Love Island viewers were shocked to the core during last night's (Wednesday 10th July) episode when Maura Higgins planted a kiss on Curtis during the hilarious dance challenge.

After the Irish beauty confessed her feelings towards Curtis, it sounds like AJ thinks they would make a lovely pair. Speaking on This Morning, he said, “I think she’s great for him. That smile that we all love of Curtis’ came back last night, definitely.”

With a reocupling set to take place on tonight's show (Thursday 11th July), will Maura choose newly single Curtis?
