LOVE Island’s Maura Higgins has revealed she had a secret breakdown in the villa and even threatened to leave after storming out – but it was NEVER shown on screen.
The feisty finalist has given away behind the scenes moments from the ITV2 show as she launched her brand new boohoo podcast Get The Scoop.

Answering questions from fans, Maura talked about her best and worst moments from her summer of love – including missing her sister Lousie’s wedding.
“My best moment in the villa was finally finding a man,” exclaimed Maura.
“My worst was missing my sister’s wedding and missing my niece’s birthday, oh my God I cried that day.
“It was also my best friend’s two-year anniversary while I was away. I cried so many times.

“You have a lot of good moments, but then you have a lot of bad moments in there too because things get very heightened.
“I’m so proud of the fact I didn’t give up because I was going to.
“I actually stormed out of the villa and said ‘I want to go home, I can’t do it anymore, I can’t find a man’.
“But I’m so proud that I got the strength to stay and carry on… and now look, I’ve got a man!”
Maura has been open and honest about her emotions since becoming a favourite on the show.
Within three weeks of the finale, Maura was forced to take a step back from the spotlight after becoming overwhelmed.
She explained on the podcast: “I had to take a few days off. I couldn’t deal with everything, it was all a bit too much. I couldn’t cope, I needed a break to process everything.”
