Amy Schumer comes out in support of Longford's Maura Higgins

Not what we expected to be hearing this Sunday morning, but there you go.

Actress and comedian Amy Schumer has come out in support of Longford's Maura Higgins - who is a contestant on Love Island - and described her as her "homie".

The Hollywood star is a huge fan of the reality TV series and has now thrown her support behind the Longford model.

In a video message due to be broadcast on Sunday, Schumer said: "I'm loving this season of Love Island.

"I want to give a shout out to Maura. She's just like my homie, I feel very connected to her."

Higgins has caused quite a stir since her introduction into the Love Island villa a number of weeks ago and also caught the attention of Lena Dunham who stated she was on "Team Maura".

Schumer's message will be broadcast in full during Sunday's Love Island: Aftersun at 10pm on ITV2.
