Maura Higgins wants to let people know that she and Chris Taylor are just friends.
It comes after the former Love Island stars are said to have spent the weekend together in their apartment.
Since the separation from Curtis Pritchard earlier this year, it was fairly certain that Maura Higgins would be associated with most of the men she came into contact with.
But let's make it clear, guys, their latest romance with Chris Taylor, the villa's co-star, is purely "platonic".
The 29-year-old reality star and Chris are only friends, according to Maura's representatives, although they have reportedly spent the weekend together in their apartment.
A representative of the former Love Island star said to OK !: "The friendship between Maura and Chris Taylor is just platonic."
The two who first made friends on the ITV2 dating show were seen eating with Chris' roommates Jordan Hames and Michael Griffiths last week.
And the fun certainly didn't stop there, and the couple are said to have returned to their Essex apartment afterwards.
They say they "chatted" on Maura's terrace on Sunday (June 14), and Chris left later the next day - in exactly the same clothes!
"Chris looked cloudy, but he definitely had a feather in his crotch. He jumped to his car," said a viewer of the release.
Since then, the two have been sighted together on Instagram in the past few days. Sounds pretty cozy to us!
Chris had split up with Harley Brash a few weeks after leaving the villa, while Maura quit Curtis in early March.
The professional dancer recently opened their breakup and said he was disappointed, the news went public so quickly.
"It hurt. I wasn't ready for everyone to know we split up - I wanted some time," the 24-year-old told The Sun.
When Curtis spoke of whether he was ready to meet again, he insisted that he wouldn't try romance until the pandemic ended. "I'm very old-fashioned," he said. "I don't really like talking to people on a cell phone or a laptop. I'm a very sociable person. I like being with and talking to someone."
Maura shared the news of their separation on Instagram Stories in March. At that time she wrote: "Curtis and I made the decision to separate.
"We have had a great experience of our time at the villa and would like to thank everyone for supporting our relationship."
She added: "There is no easy way to get through a separation and no bad feeling on either side. We tried to get it going but it shouldn't be and I wish Curtis the best for her Future."
We are sure that you both will find your perfect match soon.
