Love Island 2019: Curtis Pritchard and Maura ‘staged’ romance takes drastic step

Love Island fans were sent into meltdown this week when the Casa Amor twist brought a recoupling which saw Amber Gill standing solo while Michael Griffiths chose newcomer Joanna Chimonides.

Taking to Twitter to give their views, one fan said: “So Curtis dumps Amy when 24 hours before he wanted a future with her. Now Maura is cracking on with him when we’ve never seen them have a conversation before. And Amber wants to get back with Michael after how he treated her? And it’s not staged? Hmm #LoveIsland.” 

Someone else wrote: “I’m sorry, but some of these scenes have to be staged!!! #LoveIsland.” 

“Sorry am I supposed to believe that Maura is into Curtis now…K if this is what’s happening on tonight’s ep then I believe everyone who says #LoveIsland is fixed,” a tweet read. 

Another added: “Is it just me, or is this all starting to feel completely staged and fake? Something is really off key about all of this. #LoveIsland.” 

“Just seems more fake every day man. How does Curtis go from ‘I can see a future with Amy’ to ‘I can’t see myself marrying you’ overnight? Just seems so staged,” a viewer suggested. contacted ITV for a comment on these claims and they said: “The show is not fixed”.

She said: “I had a chat with Curtis today, just a causal chat. It’s just weird now because he’s single. 

“I look at him and think he’s obviously gorgeous, his smile is like f***** hell and he’s just very manly and I love that. I love the fact that he’s funny. He’s nearly the whole package for me. 

“I swear it’s really weird, so many times I’ve wanted him to teach me how to dance, so I might just like say ‘Curtis can you teach me how to dance?’” She continued. 

Lucie remarked: “Even during the kissing challenge you were like ‘Curtis is the best kisser’. Oh my god it adds up now!” 

Some of these scenes have to be staged.
