LOVE Island’s Maura Higgins has been slammed by fans for her awkward ‘jealous’ jibe at Molly-Mae Hague.
The two women were locked in a fight for Tommy Fury’s affections last week, with the 20-year-old boxer choosing to recouple with Molly-Mae in the end.
While Maura, 28, quickly turned her attention to new boy Tom Walker, 29, it’s clear she’s still holding a candle for Tommy.
Last night, when Molly-Mae revealed she had finally kissed the hunk, Maura sang “jealous” before quickly adding: “Just kidding”.
As the girls stood in their dressing room, Molly-Mae didn’t really react to Maura’s comments, but viewers at home did.
Taking to Twitter, one wrote: “Maura shouting girl code and then saying ‘I’m so jealous’ when Molly got her first kiss with Tommy #hypocrite #LoveIsland.”
Another added: “Maura replying ‘jealous’ to Molly-Mae about the kiss then saying she was joking LOLLLL no you’re raging sorry #LoveIsland.”
A third agreed, tweeting: “How is maura chatting about girl code to elma and then making a joke about being jealous of molly & tommy a DAY after trying to crack on with tom”.
Others shared gifs and memes to illustrate the awkward moment, with one viewer sharing a picture of an unimpressed kid and writing: “Maura when she awkwardly laughed after saying jealous after trying to go in on Elma for f*** all.”
Another shared a gif from the Fresh Prince of Bel Air of Will Smith looking confused and wrote: “When Maura said she was jealous when Molly was talking about her kiss with Tommy.”

Maura was also accused of being two-faced by Elma Pazar on last night’s show.
The two women went head-to-head over Tom, after Maura discovered the model had Elma in his sights as well as her.
But after confronting Maura and claiming she had broken girl code by showing interest in Tom, Elma replied: “You were saying that you wouldn’t have done this to me but you literally did that to Molly.”
