Maura also has a Snapchat account which you can follow her on.

Her username is: maurahiggins.

Claim to fame

She once did a shoot with Liam Payne and we've just discovered that she also met Ariana Grande.

The pair bumped into each other at last year's VMAs and it honestly looks like Ariana met Maura, rather than the other way around!

She shared her experience at the VMA's online and it looks amazing.

The Irish beauty watched Shawn Mendes as he performed In My Blood live at the event.

Relationships

Maura describes herself as a 'relationship girl' and is in the villa to find love.

She's recently out of a relationship and before that was with her last boyfriend for nine years.

She's honest, caring and a 'good girlfriend' but can also talk over people.

And Maura already has something in common with Tommy, she can't cook either!

It's the Weekend

A post shared by MAURA HIGGINS (@maurahiggins) on

She rates herself a seven out of ten on looks and likes her eyes.

Her ideal guy is someone who is honest and confident.

Maura wants someone who can make her laugh and has good banter.

An immediate turn off is arrogance or someone who changes around their friend

Maura will 'go extreme' to get a guy

Maura says she would 'go extreme' to get a guy in the villa.

"It can obviously be hard because you could be really close with one of the girls but you’re in there to find love at the end of the day."

Would rather be @cafedelmarmalta

However, Maura respects official labels.

She says, "If there is a girl and a guy in there and they’ve put a label on it, I would never go there and I would hope that no one would do it to me."

She'll be joined by another new girl named Elma Pazar from Essex on tonight's episode. Learn more about her here.

Love Island returns tonight at 9pm on Virgin Media Two.
