Before this, the pair classed themselves as best friends for quite some time, but the rumour mill was turning and fans believed more than once that Maura and Chris were a secret couple.

Since confirming the news, the reality stars have been enjoying each other’s company and gushing over each other on Instagram while on holiday in Dubai.

Speculation around the pair's relationship has been growing since May this year, when fans begged the two to start dating after they shared a sweet photo together.

However, Maura has always denied any romance rumours between them until now.

Michael Griffiths

Before Chris, Maura was linked to one of his pals and Love Island star Michael Griffiths after they were spotted having dinner together in Essex, however it seems it was purely friendly.

Curtis Pritchard

Maura and Curtis Pritchard struck up a romance in the Love Island villa, but it came to an end at the start of this year.

The pair’s romance during the series with Maura first taking liking to Tommy Fury while Curtis was paired up with Amy Hart.

Curtis and Maura enjoyed an eight month relationship before calling it quits and announcing the news on social media.

Taking to Instagram, Maura penned at the time: “Curtis and I have made the decision to separate.

"We enjoyed a great experience from our time in the villa and want to thank everyone for supporting our relationship.

"There is no easy way to get through a break-up and no bad feeling on either side. We tried to make it work but it wasn't to be and I wish Curtis nothing but the best for the future."

Speaking about their relationship after it ended, Maura called it "strange".

The two hardly ever had the time to see each other in person, which eventually lead to rumours that they were broken up or even cheating on each other.

She continued: "At the beginning it was very, very hard because I was so besotted with him, and we never got to see each other.

"When we did, it was really nice because you got the time to miss somebody. But sometimes it would be two weeks."

James Finnegan

Before finding fame on Love Island, Maura dated car salesman James Finnegan for nine years.

The pair who met at school were engaged in 2012 but their romance didn’t last.
