Love Island’s Maura reunites with co-stars Michael, Chris, Jordan and Joe for dinner after she announces she’s taking some downtime from fame

Love Island’s Maura Higgins, 28, is enjoying her time away from the limelight as she met up with some of the lads from the villa for dinner on Tuesday 27 August.

Irish beauty Maura met up with Michael Griffiths, 27, Jordan Hames, 24, Joe Garratt, 22, and Chris Taylor, 29. The group dined in swanky rooftop bar and restaurant Savage Garden in London.

Wearing a green blazer dress and heels, Maura met up with some of the boys from the villa after announcing she’s taking some time for herself due to feeling “totally burnt out”.

The small selection of Love Islanders from this year’s show mucked around while at dinner by attempting to look sexy while eating squid. Chris later then pranked Joe by getting him to eat a slimey-looking white substance, which he spat out.

And the banter didn’t stop there, as after dinner Jordan pranked the group into thinking he was taking a group photo and made the group pose, when he was actually taking a video.

In the video, the islanders and some friends can be seen posing when Jordan says: “it’s a video”, to which the group all shout at him in reaction.

The group were then seen heading to Tape Nightclub in London where they enjoyed the rest of their reunion night.

Chris entertained the group by attempting to juggle ice cubes and a glass, which ended in the glass falling on the floor. Maura mocked him by saying: “Loser,” to which Chris replied: “Ahh it’s hard when you’re p****d”.

Maura and her fellow islander’s night out comes after the Irish lass announced she was taking some time away from fame after cancelling a personal appearance.

Speaking in the video she shared on Monday, Maura said: “I wanted to come on and say to everyone who was coming to see me at my PA I'm sorry that I didn't make it.

"To be honest, I'm completely burnt out – I've not had a day off since leaving the villa and I've not had any social time or anything, so I need to take a few days off and just kind of sort my head out.

"I'm completely ran down, I have been in with a doctor and I'm feeling good because last night I had a really, really good sleep, and I haven't really got a lot of sleep since leaving the villa.

"I do feel bad that I've had to cancel some work for the next couple of days, but I need to do it for me because I am shattered. "I've not had time for just – you know normal day-to-day stuff, like go to dinner or go to the cinema, I've not had that.

"And I need to because it's good for the head to just get out and do normal things. It's a shock to the system when you come out of the villa and you're just so hectic.”

Maura, who is dating professional dancer Curtis Pritchard, 23, from the villa, recently reunited with her beau after the couple were faced with split rumours earlier this month.

Love Island fans speculated that Maura and Curtis had split after not being seen together for some time. But, the pair later squashed rumours with a romantic date night in Essex.

Another islander from last night’s group who’s romance is very much on is Joe. The sandwich company owner confirmed his romance with Cornwall-based surfer babe Lucie Donlan, 21, after they were pictured holding hands.

Revealing their romance was very much on, despite Lucie cracking on with other islanders including Tommy Fury, 20, after Joe left the villa, he shared a photo of him lifting Lucie in the air while they touch noses.

He simply captioned the photo: “#JUCIE,” which was the couple’s nickname, with a red heart emoji.

Meanwhile, Jordan, Michael and Chris are very much single after Michael and Jordan split from their potential flames, Anna Vakili, 29, Amber Gill, 21, and Joanna Chimondes, 23, while on the show.
