Maura Higgins suggested being “friends with benefits” with Chris Taylor, as they addressed romance rumours on Thursday’s Love Island: What Happened Next.
Over the past few months, the Love Island stars have been plagued by rumours that they’re secretly dating – despite insisting their relationship is strictly platonic.
During the episode, Maura said: “I do receive a lot of messages and so does Chris. It’s always, ‘You and Chris would make a perfect couple, why don’t you get together?'”
Chris then said: “Some people might think me and Maura are a really good pair, and we are, we get on really well…”
“We’ve got similar personalities, similar banter. We hang out all the time. I think to find someone you can be really comfortable with is really rare.”
Maura then jokingly said: “Maybe someday we might be friends with benefits? Who knows!”
