Maura Higgins has admitted she was “struggling to keep a rough over her head” this time last year.

The Longford model went from a relatively unknown ring girl to one of the most famous TV stars of 2019 – thanks to her long stint on Love Island.

Since leaving the villa Maura has signed lucrative deals with Boohoo.com, Ann Summers and just started on ITV’s Dancing on Ice.

Taking to Instagram Maura said she is feeling more grateful than ever before.

“I honestly can’t put into words how incredible my 2019 has been, to think this time last year I was so unhappy and struggling to keep a roof over my head,” she wrote.
