Maura Higgins and Curtis Pritchard entered the new year in very intimate style as they shared a hot and soapy bubble bath together – and shared a saucy snap with fans.
Taking to Instagram Stories on New Year’s Day, Maura effectively welcomed her fans and followers into the bath with her as she sat opposite her hunky boyfriend and raised a glass of red wine to the camera.
Curtis flashed a devilish smile as Maura clicked and took a photo showing him completely naked and gazing back at her – while the knees of the Irish reality star hid Curtis’ modesty.
“Happy New Year,” Maura captioned the moment – while Curtis, sharing the same image on his own social media feed, joked: “At a quick glance your legs look like mine.”
Maura later shared a video of post-bath Curtis wearing a fluffy onsie and opening an advent calendar that he had left at his girlfriend’s house over the festive season.
“Curtis left his advent calendar in my house and he’s opened them all up and I’ve ate them all,” Maura revealed as the camera showed a slightly disappointed Curtis opening empty doors on his calendar.
“You’ve got two. Three? He’s got three. Not too bad,” she chuckled.
Curtis noticed that Maura had carefully re-sealed many of the doors after she had raided all the chocolates from the novelty calendar, and she laughed: “Yeah. I hid the evidence.”
The playfully loved up moments came as Curtis admitted it has been hard work finding time to be with his girlfriend as commitments have kept them both busy.
Maura is hard at work preparing for her upcoming participation on Dancing On Ice, while the pair are often found on opposite sides of the Irish sea.
Curtis made his remark while discussing the upcoming debut season of Winter Love Island – which is due to kick off later this month, without show host Caroline Flack.
“I don’t know if I’m going to watch it, not because I don’t want to but my time has been very limited recently so whenever I can relax it’s really with Maura and my mum and my dad and my friends, I don’t watch too much TV anymore,” he said.
