Curtis Pritchard has revealed he is happily single and looking to stay that way until he meets someone in person rather than on a dating app. 

The former Love Island star, 24, split with Maura Higgins who he met on the show earlier this year and he admitted he was blindsided when the news went public before he was ready.

He told The Sun: ‘It hurt. I wasn’t ready for everyone to know we had split up — I wanted some time.

‘It was a shock to see that she had announced it on social media hours later.’ 

While Maura has since admitted she would give Love Island another go because she ‘needs a man’, Curtis isn’t planning to sign up to Tinder any time soon. 

He added: ‘I’m very old-fashioned. I don’t actually like talking to people over a mobile phone or laptop.

‘I’m a very sociable person. I like to be with somebody and talk to them.’ 

As well as preferring to speak to people in person, according to Curtis’s brother AJ Pritchard, there is another reason you won’t find him on an app: ‘He’s too lazy for that, honestly.’

Maura had been linked to her Dancing On Ice partner Alexander Demetriou after he separated from his wife of four years, Carlotta Edwards, last month but she rubbished the claims.

During an Instagram Q&A Maura revealed: ‘It doesn’t bother me. We’re in 2020 and a man and woman cannot just be friends… Pure s**te you know.’

Alexander had confirmed his split from Carlotta on social media, writing: ‘I’m sorry I have been quiet on social media recently but it’s been a tough time for me personally.

‘Carlotta and I have separated. Although it saddens me that we can no longer be together, I feel this is best for both of us.

‘I’m looking forward to what the future will bring but in the meantime let’s all say home and stay safe.’
