Speaking to The Sun newspaper, he spilled: "I’ve been with women and I’m with a woman now. You can never put a label on anything. It’s a cliche to say, but love is blind. I can never ever say what will happen in the future. I wouldn’t rule anything out."

Meanwhile, speaking on Monday's Lorraine, Curtis added: "I’m happy with Maura I’m happy with how things are going with her and I can see a future with her. That’s that.

"We’ve both said the same thing sort of. That’s that really. Maura’s head is clear and my head is clear on where we’re going.

Chris and Kem's ITV2 show, 'You Vs. Chris & Kem', aired last summer and saw the pair travel across the UK to take part in a number of challenges sent in via social media.

Curtis and Tommy, 20, shared an emotional chat, culminating in a warm embrace and a kiss during the show.

Meanwhile, the choreographer admitted he decided not to get intimate on screen with Maura in front of the cameras and save the moment until after they left the villa.

And although he admitted it was difficult to control the urge to get steamy under the sheets with the Irish beauty, he insisted there was no pressure from the show to have sex on screen.

He told The Sun: "It was worth the wait. I’m glad we did it away from the cameras, but that’s all I’ll say, as a gentleman never kisses and tells.

"I never felt pressured to have sex on TV. I didn’t want to show off Maura to the world. I was absolutely fine talking about sex, but actually performing it in front of people was next-level stuff."

Curtis said Maura "understood that and said we were lucky that I have a strong willpower".
