Love Island is no stranger to a love triangle but fans are outraged that Curtis Pritchard seems to be trying to have his cake and eat it too by flirting with both Maura Higgins and Francesca Allen.
The 23-year-old Dancing With The Stars professional has had a roller coaster of romances on the hit ITV2 show over the past few weeks – with a passionate, then cold romance with Amy Hart which burned out an left her quitting the show.
Since Amy’s shock exit, Curtis has been attracting attention from both 28-year-old Irish beauty Maura and also drew interest from 23-year-old recent entrant Francesca, from Essex.
Viewers have watched as Curtis has flirted with both women – even giving a topless Maura a deep and powerful massage while flirting with Fran just minutes before.
Now fans the reality romance show are calling Curtis out for being a player as many feel he is now pushing his luck by pursuing both women at the same time.
“Curtis is a right snake lol, you don’t say you’ll get to know another girl than start spooning another one,” one angry fan wrote as they took to social media.
Others fear Curtis’ personality is changing before their very eyes.
“Curtis has got waaay too big for his boots,” one fan commented.
While another asked: “Does anyone else feel like Curtis is turning into a snake. Never thought he would be.”
Curtis himself, however, seemed to love all the attention.
“I’ve never had two girls fighting over me before. I’m not used to it but I’m not complaining,” he said during a chat in the beach hut.
Francesca had earlier declared her intention to become embroiled in a love triangle alongside Maura, arguing she needed to try her best to secure dream man Curtis.
“I do feel like I will possibly be in a love triangle but I made that decision myself and I will have to live with it. If he doesn’t like me, he doesn’t like me,” she said.

However the Essex babe was left unimpressed when Curtis massaged Maura while she was topless right “in front of her face”.
She fumed to other contestants: “I did find it a little disrespectful. I find that quite full on.”
Love Island continues on ITV2 on Sunday night at 9pm – while a recap episode will air tonight at 9pm featuring previously unseen footage.
