Irish star Maura Higgins is speculated to be in the running to replace Caroline Flack on Winter Love Island.

In the comments section, a follower wrote: “Please be standing in for Caroline Flack.”
“Hopefully she’s the new love island presenter…would be AMAZE£ said another.
“Guess we know who’s hosting the next series of love island then” said a third.
However, Maura is currently signed up to star on the upcoming season of Dancing On Ice, which begins airing on Sunday, January 5th.
With Winter Love Island due to begin at the same time, it is unlikely that Maura would be able to juggle both commitments.
