She said she doesn't owe Amber an apology

Maura Higgins has hit back at the suggestion she owes her Love Island co-star Amber Gill an apology for her friendship with Greg O'Shea.

Maura, 28, was recently accused of flirting with Greg on the Late Late Show just hours after it emerged Greg had dumped Amber by text.

A source alleged to The Sun that the pair "were all over each other".

However, Maura has now blasted the claims, insisting they're just friends. She also said she doesn't need to apologise to Amber because she hasn't done anything wrong.

She told the publication at her Boohoo launch in London: "It's 2019. Just because I'm photographed doesn't mean I'm flirting or sleeping with him.

"If I was photographed with a girl nothing would be said about it. It's a bit ridiculous. I'm with Curtis, as everyone knows, and Greg is a friend."
