Chris Taylor has finally addressed rumours he’s secretly dating Maura Higgins.
The Love Island stars recently sparked romance rumours, as they’ve been spotted together on numerous occasions over the past few months.
Speaking to Vicky Pattison on her The Secret To podcast, Chris was asked if there was any truth to the rumours.
Chris bluntly replied: “No. No, we’re not.”
When Vicky said she believes they would make the “best couple”, Chris responded: “Yeah, potentially.”
He continued: “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.”
“I don’t think we ever say anything nice to each other’s faces, but that’s our banter. She’s Irish and it’s the Irish banter and that’s my kind of banter.”
“If you were around us together you’d think, ‘These two f**king hate each other!’ [But] we don’t…”
“We like each other and the thing is, it’s never been something that’s crossed our minds and it wouldn’t happen for the fact that we don’t want to ruin our friendship.”
He added: “We don’t see each other that way. We’re platonic, as they say, platonic friends.”
