Love Island star Maura Higgins is prepared to miss her sister’s wedding, as she tries to find love in Mallorca.
According to The Sun Online, the Longford native’s sister Louise is getting married in three weeks – meaning Maura might miss the celebrations, as the show’s final isn’t for another six weeks.
A source said: “Louise got engaged in 2016 and the wedding was planned over a year ago. So Maura would have known that when she applied for Love Island.”
“But Maura and Louise are very close and her sister fully supports her decision to go on Love Island.”
“In fact she’s happy for Maura and is delighted she’s been given an amazing opportunity to find love and further her career.”
In a strange turn of events, it’s believed Maura’s ex-fiancé of nine years James Finnegan will be at her sister’s wedding.
The ring girl got engaged to James back in 2013 when she was just 23, but the pair eventually split in 2017.
The source continued: “James will be at that wedding too cause he’s good friends with Louise’s fiance. To be fair they were set to be brothers-in-law.
“It was a tough decision for Maura and no doubt she’ll be gutted not to be there.”
“But her family will be rooting for her either way and want her to make it through to the Love Island final,” they added.
