Love Island’s Maura fumes as Francesca couples up with Curtis while Marvin is dumped from the villa


LOVE Island’s Maura Higgins looked furious as new girl Francesca Allen coupled up with Curtis Pritchard before Marvin Brooks was dumped from the villa.

The 26-year-old grid girl expressed her interest in the 23-year-old professional dancer as soon as he dumped air stewardess Amy Hart following Casa Amor.

However, her grafting was rocked when Francesca entered the villa earlier this week and also started to crack on with the newly-single hunk.

Tonight’s re-coupling ceremony saw the bombshell get to select her male partner first – and she decided to steal Curtis from under Maura’s nose, leaving the Irish beauty livid as she rolled her eyes at the decision.

Maura ended up selecting new boy Chris Taylor, and her fellow single girl Amber Gill entered a friendship coupling with single man Ovie Soko – sealing Marvin’s fate as the last remaining single boy.

Elsewhere, Anna and Jordan made their partnership official, and Michael and Joanna, Tommy and Molly-Mae, and Anton and Belle continued with their romances.

Speaking after getting the boot, Marvin gave his thoughts on the newly-formed love triangle –  confessing that Maura won’t make things easy for the new coupling.

He explained: “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 was dumped from the Island

Earlier in tonight’s show, Maura was visibly gutted when Curtis admitted that he wanted to get to know Francesca more.

Insisting that he “didn’t want to lie” to Maura, he confessed that he was open to broadening his horizons following his brutal split from Amy.

He told her: “Francesca is a lovely young lady.

“It’ll be nice to get to know her. Is anything going to come of it? I quite like talking to you.”

Speaking in the Beach Hut afterwards, Maura ranted: “Curtis is having more conversations with Francesca, so that’s great.

“I do like the guy, but what can I say?

“I don’t own the man, he can do what he wants.”

She later told the girls that she would QUIT the show if she were to couple up with Curtis and he still cracked on with Fran.

She seethed: “If I choose him to couple up with and he still gets to know her, I swear to God I will pack my bags.”

The beauty has been unlucky-in-love since entering the villa as a bombshell part-way through the series.

She first set her sights on Tommy Fury, who ultimately pied her in favour of his now-girlfriend Molly-Mae Hague.

Maura then coupled up with Tom Walker, but was left disgusted when he made a series of disrespectful remarks about her.

She brought back Marvin from Casa Amor before things quickly fizzled out – with the romance ending when she and Lucie Donlan broke up with their respective hunks in a brutal double dumping.
