Curtis Pritchard could step in to replace Amber Gill on RTÉ’s The Late Late Show, following reports that Amber has split from Greg O’Shea.

Just hours before their scheduled appearance on the show, The Sun reported that the pair have called time on their romance – just five weeks after winning Love Island.

The winning couple were set to appear on the show with fellow Love Island star Maura Higgins, who has been dating Curtis since the pair coupled up on the ITV2 dating show over the summer.


The pro dancer jetted into Dublin this morning to visit Virgin Media’s retail store in Blanchardstown, and plans to spend the weekend with Maura in Ireland.

This means Curtis would be available to appear on the show with her, technically filling Amber’s place.

Speaking to the Irish Sun today, Curtis said: “Me and Maura are fantastic. She’s actually coming to Ireland tonight, she’s on the Late Late Show tonight so I’m going to spend some time with her later on.”

“And then tomorrow, I just want to go around Dublin and not do anything in particular, just walk up Grafton Street, walk around, just do some random stuff.”

“It’ll be nice to just spend some quality time in her home country actually, but yeah things are great with Maura.”

He continued: “We’re very lucky, we’re very fortunate that we’re quite busy so we don’t get to spend every second of the day together, which has been nice actually because it makes it into a real life relationship.”

“In the villa, you spend all your time together and it’s not real. So it’s been nice to come out of the villa, we both work – therefore we don’t see each other, so therefore we miss each other, therefore we can’t wait to see each other.”

“So sometimes we’re not seeing each other for like three or four days but our relationship is good, so yeah so I can’t complain. I’m happy and I believe she’s happy – fingers crossed,” he added.
