As quoted by The Sun, Curtis allegedly says, "Looking back now it reminds me of Love Island because when the dogs are in season they go crazy, there was bi***es running around left, right and centre."

"They were trying to ride each other non-stop, it was wild."

It's reported he also joked that the girls are like cars.

"You’ve got all these different shapes and sizes in front of you, take it for a spin, take it for a test drive and if you don’t like it, you send it back," Curtis allegedly said.

During a chat about his upcoming performance, the reality star told The Sun, 'There was lots of comedy elements in that.'

'Comedy’s meant to be edgy, pushing the boundaries and at the end of the day, it’s meant to be just good fun and enjoyment for everyone that’s going to listen.'
