WHITCHURCH'S very own reality TV star Curtis Pritchard is set to be back on our screens in just a few weeks' time - and yet again he's looking for love.

The TV personality has been revealed as one of the former Love Island contestants who will be taking part in an 'all stars' competition - Love Island Games - launching on the Peacock channel next month.

Curtis secured the fourth position in the 2019 series with Maura Higgins.

He has since appeared on shows such as Celebs Go Dating and The Greatest Dancer, as well as trying his hand at acting alongside his brother AJ in Channel Four's Hollyoaks soap opera.

Curtus had previously appeared on Dancing with the Stars, Ireland's version of Strictly Come Dancing, of which AJ participated for four series.

The pair also hosted this year's Alderfest in Whitchurch.


But there could be some awkward moments for the 27-year-old when he comes face-to-face with Maura after the Irish beauty was confirmed as a behind-the-scenes presenter for the new Love Island installment.

After leaving the Love Island villa, Curtis and Maura were in a relationship for nine months before parting ways in March 2020.

Maura shared her excitement about being part of the new show on Instagram.

She said: “Back in Fiji.

“Excited to be giving you all the behind-the-scenes gossip for the first ever season of #LoveIslandGames …

“Can't wait for you to see what's in store.”


Nine celebrities from the UK edition of the ITV dating programme will be part of the spin-off series, alongside contestants from America, Australia, France and Germany.

The series is currently being filmed in Fiji and will be hosted by Love Island favourite Maya Jama.

The stars will be confronted with a combination of team and couples' challenges, all while navigating the complexities of dating, eliminations, recoupling, and the arrival of dramatic new contestants.

The show is scheduled to premiere on November 1, and viewers can look forward to new episodes streaming six-days-a-week on Peacock which can be accessed via Sky and NowTV.
