Maura Higgins was visibly shocked when Greg O'Shea and Amber Rose Gill were crowned the winners of Love Island 2019 as she was convinced that Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury 'had it in the bag'.

Following Monday night's live final social media was awash with memes and clips of Maura's confused expression when Caroline Flack declared Greg and Amber triumphant. 

Explaining her animated demeanor Maura told the Press Association that she was "without a doubt shocked" and even though she "loves Greg and Amber to bits" she thought Molly-Mae and Tommy "had it in the bag."

The Longford native also dispelled rumours that Molly-Mae was faking her feelings for Tommy in order for them to win the show.

"Molly-Mae is the most genuine girl I've ever met in my life. She's amazing. 

"She is without a doubt besotted by Tommy. And vice versa. They are the perfect couple."

Maura coupled up with Dancing with the Stars professional dancer Curtis Pritchard

Maura coupled up with Curtis Pritchard after pursuing the professional dancer following his split with 'half-girlfriend' Amy Hart, who then quit the show.

He said: "Amy is a fantastic young lady but I am very, very happy with Maura and she has brought out an amazing side to me.

"I can't wait to see a future with her and just spend time with Maura on the outside.

"We are obviously going to be working quite a lot but I can't wait to do something together with Maura. Plan first dates, do some wild things, go out for a drink."
