LOVE Island’s Maura Higgins asks Curtis Pritchard to sneak into her bed as she battles it out with Francesca Allen for his affections.
The 26-year-old Islander was left furious when the bombshell stole Curtis from under her nose in tonight’s re-coupling ceremony, which saw Marvin Brooks get dumped from the villa.
In a preview for tomorrow night’s episode of the show, fans will see that the Irish beauty has far from given up as she continues to crack on with the 23-year-old professional dancer.
The sneak peek shows Maura asking: “Do you want to sneak into my bed when she falls asleep?”
Curtis bites his lip to conceal a grin as he sheepishly looks away having previously confessed that he hoped to keep “getting to know” both women.
Maura was seen rolling her eyes before breaking down in tears when Francesca got first dibs on the men during the re-coupling, securing Curtis as her partner.
Maura, 26, was the last girl to choose and was forced to pick between new boy Chris Taylor and Marvin.
She selected Chris so that he could “have a chance” in the villa, with Curtis later reassuring her that he still wants to “get to know” her more – despite being partnered with Francesca.
Upon his exit, Marvin gave his thoughts on the newest Love Island triangle, explaining: “I feel Francesca is more Curtis’ type and I think their romance will blossom.
“But it won’t happen easily because Maura will definitely have her say in the matter.”
Marvin got brought to the main villa by Maura following last week’s Casa Amor twist.
Maura was single at the time, but it didn’t take long for things to fizzle out – with she and Lucie Donlan breaking up with their respective Casa Amor hunks in a brutal double dumping.
Addressing his brief romance with the popular contestant, Marvin suggested that she lost interest in him because Curtis had become single.
He said: “I have no idea why it fizzled out! We just went our separate ways and I think that may have been because of the problems Amy and Curtis were having, who she had her eye on.
“She gave me the opportunity to come into the Villa and in this re-coupling, she gave someone else an opportunity by coupling up with them.”
Despite his short time on the ITV2 dating show, the star went on to insist that he stayed for “longer than expected” as he praised the friendships that he made in the villa.

Meanwhile, Maura previously threatened to QUIT Love Island if she got to couple up with Curtis and he continued to flirt with Fran.
The Irish beauty has insisted that she fancied Curtis from her first day, but steered clear because he was Amy’s “half boyfriend” at the time.
However, when he brutally dumped the air stewardess, Maura was quick to make her move – asking him for dance lessons as she openly swooned over the Dancing With The Stars’ performer.
Amy eventually quit the villa as she struggled to cope with her heartache, but Maura’s optimism was short-lived when bombshell Francesca joined the show and also set her sights on Curtis.
