Maura Higgins and Chris Taylor together? We would 100% go for that.

Rumours of a romance started after Chris, 29, spent the weekend at the Irish model’s home after re-uniting for a meal with Danny Williams and Chris’ flatmates, Jordan Hames and Michael Griffiths.

He was even spied leaving Maura's home wearing the same clothes he arrived in days earlier, which is a dead give away, right? RIGHT?

Sadly, wrong. Despite fans’ wishes, it seems that Love Island stars Maura Higgins and Chris Taylor are just friends.

A representative for Maura told OK!, “Maura and Chris Taylor’s friendship is simply platonic.”

Fans have been wishing the duo to get together ever since Maura parted ways from ex-boyfriend Curtis Prichard in March. In fact, the rumours grew so much that in May, Maura responded to a question about the rumours of her relationship with Chris in an Instagram video claiming that their relationship is entirely platonic.

She said, “We’re in 2020 and a man and a woman still cannot just be friends. Pure sh--e you know.”

Maura and Curtis split up after seven months together, with Maura admitting that the pair “couldn’t make it work”. Their split appeared to be a long time coming with rumours of cheating on both sides of the relationship, Curtis during a night out and Maura with her Dancing on Ice skating partner, Alexander Demetriou.

Chris Taylor, on the other hand, was previously coupled up with Harley Brash but split just two weeks after the 2019 final. In an Instagram post confirming the news back in August, Chris revealed that they had both been “busy with separate opportunities and [hadn’t] had enough quality time for each other.”

The break-up appeared to be amicable with Chris ending his statement with “I will be very proud of everything she has done and everything she’ll do. The future is bright crumpet go get em!”
