LOVE Island fans have claimed that Maura Higgins and Curtis Pritchard’s relationship is “fake” – insisting their kisses for the cameras are just for show.
The pair smooched at her Boohoo clothing launch last night, but not everyone was sold on their romantic story – with one fan claiming their lips don’t even touch.

One fan posted: “Ummm sorry but I’ve never seen such a NON KISS ever! Hilarious who are they trying to kid ! Money money money!”
Another announced: “The most awkward kiss award goes to….”
A third joker wrote: “Usually when you kiss someone your lips actually make contact.”
Others chipped in: “Literally zero chemistry between the two of them!” and: “That looks like he’s kissing his mum.”

Last night, 23-year-old Curtis took to Instagram to share how proud he was of his girlfriend.
He said: “Maura I’m here waiting for you, you’re in interviews at the moment and I just want to say congratulations on all the Boohoo stuff and I can’t wait to see you darling,” before making a kissing gesture into the camera.”
He added: “Here she is, beautiful, it’s her night tonight, special night, very proud of you,” before embracing in a brief peck on the lips.”
It is far from the first time their kisses have been slammed as fake by fans.

A third joked: “I’m sorry Curtis looks so much more comfortable kissing and handling Tommy than he does Maura.”
A fourth has said: “Curtis so fake man… dont even kiss her properly. Closed lips..”

The reality stars are currently enduring in a long distance relationship due to Curtis living in London and Maura living in Ireland.
When the show ended last month they only only got to spend four days together.
However, despite the doubts, the two made it to the final and placed fourth, behind winners Amber Gill, 21 and Greg O’Shea, 24, Tommy Fury and Molly-Mae Hague, 20 and India Reynolds and Ovie Soko, 28.
