Last year (when times were simpler), the fifth season of 'Love Island' brought us many stars.

While Amber Gill and Greg O'Shea won the competition, it was Maura Higgins who stole the hearts of the nation.

Maura came in fourth place with partner at the time, Curtis Pritchard. But those who watched the series always thought she was better suited to contestant Chris Taylor. The two were often spotted having a laugh together on set.

The two have continued their friendship and been spotted together frequently since the show wrapped. There were plenty of romance rumours but when asked by media, they've insisted they're just friends.

 

Now it seems they're officially an item since both shared this loved-up pic of them in Dubai on Instagram.

While Chris wrote "Turns out I fell in love with my best mate," Maura said: "He's mine."

 

Fellow contestant Molly-Mae Hague shared the pic and tweeted "My heart wasn’t ready😩😩😩"

ITV recently announced they're casting for next summer's season of 'Love Island' soon.
