Regardless, show bosses won't tolerate any sort of offensive language in the Mallorcan villa.

A spokesperson for the show released a statement to MailOnline:

'We do not tolerate any offensive language in the villa and we speak to all of the islanders to remind them of what we condone to be acceptable behaviour during their time on the show.'

Get to know Maura

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

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."

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."
