LOVE Island star Maura Higgins dodged a question about whether she loves Curtis Pritchard on Celebrity Juice.

Keith Lemon interrogated the Irish beauty, 28, about her relationship with her boyfriend Curtis, 23.

The provocative comedian asked: "Are you still in love?" to which Maura replied: "Yeah, we're still together."

Keith pressed: "But is it loving?" and Maura doubled-down: "We're together."

"Are you happy together?" Keith asked, with Maura saying they were.

He then followed it up with: "How long do you have to stay with him, contractually?"

Maura kept dodging the question on the show

Maura says: "Not everyone's still together, you don't get told [how long to stay together]."

Team captain Holly Willoughby jumps to her defence, pointing out that the winners Amber Gill and Greg O'Shea aren't together.

Both Curtis and Maura have insisted they want to take their relationship slowly.

The pair only just made their relationship official, after Curtis whisked them away on a romantic trip away to ask.

Curtis and Maura have now become official

Despite officially becoming boyfriend and girlfriend, the fledgling couple are struggling to find time for each other.

In fact, their work schedules are so busy Curtis can't take Maura on holiday until next year.

Speaking to The Sun Online, Curtis said: "We would love to go on holiday together but it's not happening.

"Maura has Dancing On Ice and hopefully she makes it to the final. And then I'm working solidly up until July.
