CURTIS Pritchard was quizzed by ex Maura Higgins after being booted out of Love Island The Games in a very awkward moment.
The lad, who has just left the spin-off show she works on, broke a deafening silence by asking: "How's the family?"
It was the first time they had worked together since dating for nine months after leaving Love Island in 2019.
Their split in 2020 turned bitter when Curtis was accused of cheating on Maura and she then grew close to her Dancing on Ice partner Alex.
The exes have now had one of the most awkward encounters ever witnessed on TV after she was forced to interview him.
In a clip shared online, Maura and Curtis stumble through their "hellos" before the director shouts "action".

Maura says: "Hello everyone I'm now joined by our next Islander to leave the villa, who is the lovely Lisa's partner, Curtis.
"Long time no see Curtis, yeah I'm good thanks, how are you?"
Curtis said he was "gutted to be out" as Maura continued: "Because you're obviously a competetive person.
"You were coupled up with Lisa, but you were clearly getting to know some of the other girls, a lot of flirting going on."

Curtis said he was keen to meet "the one" and Maura said: "Oh you went in there to find love? Are you gutted you didn't? Or are you kicking yourself for not exploring more?"
"I'm gutted I didn't go in stronger," he replied.
"I didn't have a deep connection with Lisa."
"Oh so nothing is happening with Lisa?" Maura probed.
At one point Maura teased that Curtis “still has no balls”, to which he responded, “You would know!”
He also brought up the issue of his snoring in the villa, asking: "Do I snore?"
"I don't know," she replied. "I mean I can't remember. It's that long ago, honestly."
The new Love Island spin-off show sees past villa legends from around the world coming together for the ultimate reality show.
