Love Island's Maura Higgins has reportedly signed up for Dancing on Ice

Love Island's Maura Higgins has reportedly signed up for Dancing on Ice - replacing her former co-star Amber Gill.

Last month, the Love Island winner was reported to have been scouted for the upcoming season of the popular reality TV show.

However, The Sun report that Dancing On Ice producers met with "several contestants" from Love Island - eventually deciding to sign Maura Higgins up for the series, instead.

An insider said:

Dancing On Ice producers were always going to sign a Love Island star for next year’s series and they wanted a girl this time after having two guys in the past.

“It was looking hopeful for Amber but Maura pipped her to the post with her sense of humour and personality.

“Maura is hoping Curtis can now teach her more moves, even though she will be on the ice.”

It comes as, on Wednesday, the pair spoke about their relationship - and why they haven't gone 'official' yet.

Speaking on This Morning, Curtis admitted he was "caught off guard" by Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby's question.

"I haven't asked her to be my girlfriend," he told the hosts. "I am not going to do it on TV."

However, Maura said that things were going "really, really good" between them - and that things were easier than when they were in the villa.

She continued:

"It's just because we don't put everything on social media. We don't have to prove to other people that we're together.

"We know we're happy, so that's all that matters. A lot of the Islanders have seen each other a lot more."
