'She's strong' Maura Higgins weighs in on Love Island's Greg and Amber's split
"She's going to be so successful, she's amazing."
Maura Higgins has weighed in on Love Island winners' Greg and Amber's split, saying that the pair just weren't "meant to be."
The couple split up last week ahead of their scheduled chat on The Late Late Show after Greg allegedly sent Amber a text calling it quits.
Maura appeared on the talk show with Greg on Friday as he attempted to explain what had happened, eventually coming to the conclusion that the relationship had ended over a couple of days and that you "shouldn't believe everything you read."
The former ring girl has since given her two cents on the whole debacle, saying that she was "disappointed" to hear that the winners had split so soon.
"It's disappointing to see anyone part but you know what, maybe the long distance was a problem, I know Amber said she's disappointed but she such a strong girl, she's incredible," she told The Sun.
"She's going to be so successful, she's amazing and you know what, these things happen.
"If it wasn't meant to be it wasn't meant to be but she's strong."
This comes after Amber said that the text Greg sent her signalling their breakup read "OK bye."
She told Loose Women that she still wanted to make things work between herself and the Limerick rugby player.
“There was a call a few days prior, just chatting - not specifically to do with that. But definitely on that day it was like a text," she said.
“We were texting each other, but that’s why I had to cancel."
Greg, on the other hand, appeared to refute that he had done anything wrong, saying that he did not end things by text.
"Me and Amber have been chatting the last couple of days over phone call, this whole thing about text isn't true," he told Ryan Tubridy.
"We're mad about each other, I'm mad about her. She's funny, smart, great personality, the queen of Love Island for a reason.
"But you need to be realistic about the situation. She lives in the UK, every brand wants to work with her, every event wants her there, of course she deserves all of it."
