Maura Higgins enjoyed a much needed night off work on Monday, after admitting she feels “burnt out”.
The Longford native went on a date with her Love Island beau Curtis Pritchard, and the pair both shared photos and videos from their romantic dinner date on Instagram.
The couple went for dinner at Sheesh Restaurant in Chigwell, Essex – which is a well-known celebrity hotspot.
The news comes after Maura was forced to cancel a number of work gigs, to protect her own mental health.
On Monday afternoon, Maura apologised to fans who were left disappointed when the star cancelled a PA at a nightclub in the UK.
Fans were left annoyed when the reality star cancelled due to illness, but was seen partying in a London venue with her sister.
On her social media, Maura expressed her apologies, and explained that she has not had a single day off since leaving the villa.
She said: “So I wanted to come on and say to everyone that was coming to see me at my PA, I am so sorry that I didn’t make it.”
“To be honest, I am completely burnt out, I’ve not had a day off since leaving the villa and I’ve not had any social time or anything, so I need to take a few days off and just sort my head out.”
“I’m just completely run down, I have been in to a doctor and I’m feeling good because last night I had a really good sleep and I haven’t had a lot of sleep since leaving the villa, but I do feel bad obviously that I’ve had to cancel work for the next couple of days, but I need to do it for me because I am shattered.”
She continued: “I’ve not had time for normal day to day stuff… and I need to because it’s good for the head.”
“It’s just a big shock to the system when you come out of the villa and you’re so hectic and I’ve not had a down day.”
Maura finished her story with a big thank you to fans for their love and support.
