LOVE Island’s new contestant Maura Higgins has been tipped to pick Tommy Fury at the next recoupling despite the boxer already being with Molly-Mae.
The stunning model made it clear over dinner she’s interested in the 20-year-old and it’s now emerged she was previously a ring girl at fights for Anthony Joshua and Amir Khan.
The sexual tension was palpable last night when Tommy and County Longford-born Maura met for the first time on their date.
And it’s not just the physical attraction that’s clear, the pair have a lot in common thanks to the Irish beauty’s connections.
A ring girl at high profile boxing matches, Maura met former World Heavyweight champ Anthony during a rematch fight between David Haye and Tony Bellew.
She posted a photo on Twitter, writing: “#Bellewhaye2 @anthonyfjoshua.”
And two months before entering the Villa, she worked as a ring girl at Anthony’s fight against Joseph Parker.
Considering her ring girl past, fans are hoping the brunette stunner will pick Tommy if she gets the chance.
One tweeted: “Maura Higgins is definitely going in there and making a b-line to Tommy Fury, Mollie Mae watch your back hun you don’t wanna f*** with a ballymahon sham #loveisland.”
A second added: “Praying that Tommy couple’s up with Maura so I can laugh at Molly going from 3 guys to 0 #LoveIsland”
While a third chimed in: “Tommy and Maura suit so much can he PLEASE dump Molly Mae off the island #loveisland”
And a fourth wrote: “I ship Tommy & Maura..she gives him what he needs #LoveIsland”

Chatting over dinner during the episode, the two quickly hit off discussing their Irish heritage and Maura’s career as a ring girl.
Tommy was blown away, commenting: “You look absolutely stunning.”
Meanwhile, Maura wasted no time letting boxer Tommy know that she found him attractive, showering him with compliments and sharing flirty banter.

Before getting to know the 20-year-old she said to fellow new girl Elma Pazar: “They look so f*****g fit. I’m having fanny flutters I’m not joking.”
When the Essex girl commenting on Tommy eating in the kitchen, Maura cheekily said: “I wish he was eating me.”
As Maura and Tommy got to know each other over a cheese sandwich, the ring girl asked if he’d kissed Molly-Mae yet.
When she learned he hasn’t, she playfully told him: “I would have jumped on that.”
And after the date was over, Tommy told Anton about Maura: “I could look into those eyes all day.”
