She's just like my homie, I feel very connected to her.

Also on Sunday's Aftersun, the six dumped islanders Dennon, Stevie, Dan, Lavena, Nabila and Maria will chat to Caroline about their time in the villa.

While she's winning fans outside of the villa, Maura might be about to make herself unpopular in the villa as she makes her feelings for Curtis Pritchard clear.

When Curtis split with Amy Hart  fans were in uproar.

Now, as his relationship with Maura looks set to intensify, furious viewers are claiming that their flirtation is 'staged and fake'.

"Im 100% convinced Curtis and Maura are actors who have been placed in the villa to mix things up. Too much of what they say and do seems staged or performed. #LoveIsland," one said.

Another commented: "How staged and scripted is this.. so only time Maura is getting airtime is if she says those things about Curtis. As where is her man Marvin he doesn’t even speak #loveisland"

"You can tell this Maura and Curtis situation is staged cos there is no way he is perceived as MANLY #loveisland," a third said.

Finally, one fan questioned Maura: "When Maura called Curtis manly #loveisland#mollymaeface".
