Love Island’s Maura Higgins and Chris Taylor seen in UK for first time since confirming romance

New couple Maura Higgins and Chris Taylor were spotted stepping out in London on Monday, in their first public sighting since confirming their romance.

The Love Island stars, who on Sunday returned from a month-long break in Dubai, revealed they were dating at the end of last month following relentless speculation.

And Chris and Maura, both 30, looked as loved up as ever as they hit the streets of the English capital, with the tattooed hunk planting a kiss on his girlfriend’s head.

Maura looked casually cool for the outing, wearing a baggy grey tracksuit under a darker quilted coat, which she teamed with Yeezy Boost 700 Wave Runners.

With her brunette locks tied back, the Irish beauty adhered to COVID-19 safety guidelines by donning a protective face mask.

She chatted away with her beau, who sported black skinny ripped jeans with a longline white T-shirt and a black bomber jacket as he carried a Nando’s bag. 

They looked relaxed and happy as they settled back into London life – and the new Tier 4 restrictions – following their month-long trip away together.

Late last month, the photogenic twosome took to Instagram to post identical loved-up snaps, taken by the pool in Dubai.

Maura, who celebrated her birthday on the trip, and Chris gazed lovingly at each other in the photo, smiling contently, with Maura captioning her post: ‘He’s mine!’

Chris followed suit, writing: ‘Turns out I fell in love with my best mate!’

The loved up pair looked the picture of happiness – Maura in a champagne satin mini-dress and Chris in his trademark jazzy shirt and ripped skinny jeans.

Maura and Chris have fuelled rumours for months with their close friendship but denied they were an item as far back as July.

They first caused tongues to start wagging after making fun TikToks together, getting cosy over games of Twister, going on nights out and wearing one another’s dressing gowns.

But Chris, who was coupled up with Harley Brash on the show, and Maura  constantly denied the rumours in the months following her split from Curtis Pritchard.

When it was put to them that they’d make the perfect couple Chris replied: ‘Yeah, potentially. We’ve never really thought about it like that, we’re just super close mates.

‘We care about each other, we look out for each other, we basically bully each other.’
