Maura Higgins has been living it up in sunny Dubai for the past few weeks as she continues to post holiday snaps on her social media account.

The Love Island star has been spending time with her new boyfriend and fellow co-star Chris Taylor.

Maura's good friend Molly-Mae Hague and boxer Tommy Fury have also joined the loved-up couple on their lavish getaway.

After a strong friendship, the two revealed that they were together last month after they both shared a snap on Instagram cuddled up in the United Arab Emirates.

Yesterday, the Longford girl posted a funny selfie of herself and Chris cross-eyed with the caption: "Good morning… yes we are still in Dubai."

The Irish beauty has posted multiple snaps of her trip in Dubai as she enjoys herself in restaurants, on the beach and sunning herself on a boat.

In one snap, she wears a white swimsuit with gold detailing, with a cream sun hat while Chris sits beside her. She captioned the image: "You, me, and the sea."


Maura has shown off an array of swimsuits on her grid, including a high-neck purple floral dress and a denim look with a puff-sleeved white top.

Donning a blue floral bikini in one image on Instagram, the 30-year-old captioned it: "I'm a long way from Tipperary." Here, the TV star is referencing a blunder she made on Michael McIntyre's new show The Wheel.

She has called herself an "idiot sandwich" after losing €10,000 for a contestant after getting an Irish geography question wrong.

On the show, Maura had to help contestant Barry with the question: "Geographically speaking, from which of these Irish counties would it be most accurate to say 'It's a long way to Tipperary'?"

The options were Limerick, Donegal, Cork and Dublin, but the Longford native said Cork.
