Maura Higgins and Chris Taylor share a kiss in sweet new photo

The couple recently went public with their romance


Love Island star Michael Griffiths has posted a sweet photo of his pals Maura Higgins and Chris Taylor sharing a kiss on board a yacht.

The reality stars are currently on an extended break in Dubai, where the couple have been flaunting their new romance.

Taking to his Instagram Story, Michael shared an adorable photo of Maura and Chris kissing at sunset.

He captioned the post: “Swear I take the best candid photos @maurahiggins @christophertaylorofficial.”

Following months of romance rumours, the Love Island stars finally confirmed their relationship last week.

The day before Maura’s 30th birthday, the couple decided to go public with their romance by sharing the same loved-up snap on Instagram.

Chris wrote: “Turns out I fell in love with my best mate ♥️”, while Maura said: “He’s mine❤️”

After the photo was shared, a host of Love Island stars took to the comment section to show their support, with Greg O’Shea writing: “This is what 2020 needed ❤️❤️”

Laura Anderson wrote: “Why am I crying 😭 #bestnewsever ❤️”, while Molly-Mae Hague commented: “😭😭😭😭😭 Everything and more.”

Maura and Chris met on the 2019 series of Love Island, where they struck up a close friendship – which has since blossomed into romance.

The news comes after Maura’s ex Curtis Pritchard said he felt betrayed by her romance with Chris.  

Speaking to The Sun, he said: “When I saw the pictures, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t feel hurt. I was upset. How long has this truly been going on for?”
