Although they were only ever in a brief friendship couple whilst in the villa, Maura Higgins and Chris Taylor have been growing closer and closer in recent months and we're starting to seriously doubt the ex-Islanders' claims that things are totally platonic between them!
Maura and Chris were spotted heading into Chris' place after an evening out having dinner, bowling and ice skating together - all classic date activities. The 'pals' then made a brief stop at Maura's to pick up her overnight bag before heading back to Chris' house just after 11pm…
Chris was previously spotted leaving Maura's flat after seemingly spending the night there back in June and the pair have been rumoured to be in a relationship ever since, with one source describing Chris as 'besotted'.
However, both Chris and Maura were still insisting as recently as last week that there was nothing more than friendship between them. Maura has described them as being 'like brother and sister' and Chris said making things romantic between them has 'never been something that’s crossed our minds and it wouldn’t happen for the fact that we don’t want to ruin our friendship.'
Meanwhile Maura, who recently claimed to not have slept with anyone in six months due to the pandemic, was said to be enraged last week when her ex Curtis was spotted kissing the dancer he was rumoured to have cheated on her with, Amber Pierson.
