MAURA Higgins has been one of the most entertaining contestants in Love Island history with an army of fans who wanted to see her win.
So when she came in fourth place with her partner Curtis Pritchard, many were left disappointed – and apparently no one more than Maura herself.

Fans noticed the feisty ring girl appeared to be “raging” when the results were announced, with some guessing she may have rowed with Curtis.
The Irish stunner, 28, was described as looking a little “frosty” as she sat next to Curtis for their exit interview with Caroline Flack.
“Maura is secretly raging that she lost,” one viewer wrote.
Another added: “I feel that Maura and Curtis have had an argument before this. She is very frosty.”

During her chat with Caroline, Maura surprised fans, and Curtis, when she revealed she initially fancied Michael the most in the villa.
“Michael was the guy I wanted to go for straight away when I went in,” Maura said.
“But I had a better connection with Tommy.”
She then added: “I always go for what I want. I didn’t give up.”
Maura later gifted fans another classic look – this time of disbelief – after Amber Gill and Greg O’Shea were crowned the surprise winners of the show.
After host Caroline Flack announced their names, beating long-term favourites Molly-Mae Hague and Tommy Fury in the process – the camera panned to the couples who finished in third and fourth place.
While Ovie Soko whooped and cheered, and Curtis Pritchard clapped happily, Maura clapped haphazardly, while her face recorded a look of disbelief and relative bemusement at the result.
It didn’t go unnoticed by eagle-eyed viewers at home either, as they took to Twitter in hysterics at Hurricane Maura once again.
One wrote alongside a grab of the moment: “Fix your face hun.”
Another tweeted: “Anyone else see Maura’s face when amber and Greg won, she didn’t look to impressed.”
A third wrote: “Maura made it very clear who she wanted to win.”
Meanwhile a fourth agreed, writing: “anyone peep maura’s face when amber & greg were announced as the winners lmao was she confused or….?”
The comments kept coming, as another viewer tweeted: “It’s not Molly’s reaction that bothers me at least she’s happy for them. Look at Maura.”

While Maura, tried to get her head around the news, Amber, 21, and Greg, 24, went crazy when their name was called.
There were then tense scenes as they were forced to open the golden envelopes revealing whether either of them would attempt to steal the £50,000 prize.
However, the nation breathed a huge sigh of relief when they opted to share the cash.
One fan raved: “Yessssss Amber & Greg. So deserved. She’s a diamond and he’s a gent!”
The result is a huge upset for the show, with Molly-Mae and Tommy having been tipped as the winners for weeks.
