Inside Maura Higgins trip to Disneyland as she surprises family with incredible getaway

Maura Higgins has enjoyed a fun trip to Disneyland Paris with her family after surprising them with a holiday to the French capital.

Taking to her Instagram earlier this week, the former Love Island star, 32, posted a series of sweet snaps from her time in the park.

One of the snaps showed her wearing a Varsity style jacket and hoody with Mickey Mouse on it and pouting as she stood in front of the Magic Kingdom castle.

In another photo, she looked glowing as she stood on Main Street smiling for a selfie with her Minnie Mouse ears on.

Other pictures from the photo slideshow showed her on a carousel and standing next to a Disney plaque. She swept her brunette locks into a high ponytail and completed her casual look with a pair of jeans.

Maura looked to be embracing the Disney magic and loving spending quality time with her family, including her niece. She captioned her post: "Disneyland" with a series of emojis.

Disneyland was the first stop on their surprise holiday organised by Maura, who decided to treat them to business class tickets on the Eurostar. She wrote: “Surprised my family with a trip to Paris… first stop Disneyland."

It comes as Maura had a very 'awkward' reunion with her ex, Curtis Pritchard, on Love Island Games after he was the third contestant to be sent packing from the villa.

Maura, who first shot to fame on the 2019 series of Love Island, is currently the social media ambassador for the spin-off show.

Love Island Games brings together 26 former Islanders from both the UK and international versions of the show for 'another shot at love', taking part in a number of fun challenges. The show, hosted by Maya Jama, was filmed in sunny Fiji and kicked off on November 1.

Curtis, 27, is the latest star to be dumped from the spin-off, following Lisa Celander from Swedish Love Island and Steph Blackos from the French series.

But things got a tad more uncomfortable for Curtis when he had to do an exit interview with Maura, his ex-girlfriend from the 2019 series of Love Island.

The pair called it quits in 2020 after just seven months together, with Maura revealing that she no longer saw Curtis as her "future husband."

In the tense exchange, Maura was tasked with getting Curtis to open up about his experience inside the villa in the aftermath of his eviction.

"Long time no see, Curtis," the 32 year old sayid, prompting the former Dancing With the Stars contestant to laugh. After exchanging social pleasantries, Maura got down to the nitty gritty of her ex-fling's time on Love Island Games.

"It's a bit weird to be out," Curtis told her, before revealing he's "gutted" to have left so early and wished he was "still in" the contest. Maura then challenged him on his flirtatious behaviour with the other women in the villa, despite being matched with Lisa.

"You were coupled up with Lisa, but you were clearly getting to know some of the other girls," she said. "There was a lot of flirting going on. But you always seemed to gravitate back to Lisa. Why do you think that was?"

Curtis appeared to try to break the awkward silence by enquiring after Maura's loved ones. "How's the family?" he asked, to which she replied: "Good, yeah, good."

"Curtis Pritchard got dumped 3rd on Love Island Games… Maura (his love island ex) is the spinoff show host…" one person wrote on X, formerly known as Twitter. "It's about as awkward as you'd expect."

Another said: "I’ve second hand embarrassment watching this," while a third said: “How’s the family” sent me immediately."

Other Love Island stars equally felt the cringe as Jack Fowler wrote: "Looooool this is awkward."

And Eyal Booker wrote: "We’ll this is b*****y awkward isn’t it."

"This interview was so awkward yet I still saw some flirtation going on am I delulu?" one viewer posted online. Others are hopeful that the pair might rekindle their romance, with one person writing: "Still hoping they'll get back together and it lasts!" Another smitten fan said, "These two have unfinished business."
