LOVE Island’s Maura Higgins and Curtis Pritchard finally reunited for a cosy red carpet display at the Animal Hero Awards last night.
The united front comes just days after 28-year-old Maura revealed that she hadn’t seen her 23-year-old beau for two weeks due to their busy schedules.
The two stars looked more loved-up than ever, with Maura wrapping her arms around Curtis‘ waist as she showed off the extravagant beaded back of her chic white jumpsuit.
She had her long, dark hair tied up into a high ponytail, and accessorised with a pair of delicate earrings.
Professional dancer Curtis looked dapper in a black tuxedo, and both he and his partner fought off the rain with huge Union Jack umbrellas.
Curtis also shared a selfie from inside the ceremony, with he and Maura cheek-to-cheek as they posed for the camera.
The proud star went on to film the moment that Maura presented an award on stage.
Last week, the Irish beauty shocked when she confessed that Curtis still hasn’t asked her to be his girlfriend – and that they’d spent a fortnight apart.
Addressing their manic schedules since finding fame as reality stars, Maura insisted: “I mean, it’s not hard. I don’t find it hard because I’m kept busy and he is too.”
Touching on how long it has been since they last saw each other, she added to the Irish Mirror: “Obviously it’s very different after coming out of the villa where you were with each other 24/7.
“But coming out, it’s a whole new relationship. You’re not going to see each other every single day.”
She then admitted that she and Curtis haven’t made their romance official yet, explaining: “We haven’t seen each other in two weeks but that’s because of our hectic schedules, but I mean, I’m happy with the pace we’re going and i think he is as well.”
It was also recently confirmed that Maura will be taking part on Dancing On Ice early next year, with the programme known to trigger relationship break ups.
