Maura Higgins has revealed she’s tormented by fans showing up at her home in the UK.
The 30-year-old relocated from her native Longford to London in 2019, after she shot to fame on Love Island.
Speaking on her Instagram Story, Maura confessed: “I’ve had groups of people stand outside my window, like groups of young people, saying, ‘Maura is in there!'”
“I’ve had to close my curtains. I think people have figured out where I live now, which obviously isn’t the best because you lose your privacy then.”
The reality star also recalled the moment she spotted a man taking photos of her in her garden.
“It definitely is scary. Especially with the elderly man, that really scared me,” she said.
“I was sitting outside in my dressing gown and I just turned my head and he was so close to me.”
“Where my seating area is outside, the bush is right next to it and I looked and saw this man… it was like something from a horror film.”
“He was holding his phone up and I could hear him taking pictures. I was like, ‘Oh my God’.
“That’s definitely one of the downsides to being in the public eye, but the upsides do outweigh the downsides,” she added.
Maura shot to fame almost two years ago, when she appeared on the 2019 series of Love Island.
The Irish beauty, who hails from Co. Longford, is currently dating her former co-star Chris Taylor.
The couple went public with their romance in November, following months of speculation.
