Maura told The Sun that she can't understand why anyone would think her romance with Curtis was fake.

She said, 'If I’m not happy I’m just not going to be with that person, and I can’t fake anything because my face will tell it straight away.'

'What are you going to gain?'

It had been reported that they had been keeping up appearances for the sake of their brand.

To this, Maura said, 'I’m my own brand. I don’t need anyone, there’s no point denying it!'

'I just felt like I’m 29 and I want somebody that I can see a future with. I’m not getting any younger.'

Maura said, '[Curtis] is 24 – maybe he did want that, maybe he didn’t, I don’t know, but I just felt it wasn’t going in that direction.'

Life after Love Island

The Irish reality star went on to share how hard it was maintaining a relationship after Love Island.

Maura revealed, 'Curtis and I barely saw each other.'

'At the beginning it was very, very hard because I was so besotted with him, and we never got to see each other.'

'When we did, it was really nice because you got the time to miss somebody.'

She revealed, 'But sometimes it would be two weeks. You know when you’re in a relationship and you know someone’s day to day?'

'We were that busy that we didn’t, and it was strange. When I started on Dancing On Ice, we were doing really well.'

'He was coming to some of the shows and stuff, but we were still very, very busy and it just took a toll on the relationship in the end.'
