Love Island SPOILER: Maura Higgins promises to quit if Curtis Pritchard pursues newcomer Francesca Allen

She won't stand for it

On Wednesday's episode, the Essex lass chose Curtis for a picnic date along with basketball pro Ovie.

During tonight's installment, Ovie gets a text that reads: "Islanders. Tonight, there will a recoupling in which the girls will decide who they want to couple up with.

"The boy not picked to be in a couple will be dumped from the Island. #everymanforhimself #taxiforone."

If I choose him to couple up with and he still gets to know her, I swear to God I will pack my bags.

And just like air hostess Amy Hart, it seems Maura doesn't see a future for herself in the villa without Curtis.

She tells the other girls that she will quit if Curtis says he is still interested in getting to know shop manager Francesca even after being chosen by Maura in the recoupling.

According to OK! magazine, she says: "If I choose him to couple up with and he still gets to know her, I swear to God I will pack my bags."

In earlier scenes, Curtis and Maura chat about his where his head is at.

The dancer reveals: "Francesca is a lovely young lady. It'll be nice to get to know her. Is anything going to come of it? I quite like talking to you."

Maura, clearly after a straight answer, asks if he wants to get to know Francesca. He admits he doesn't know, but won't lie to her.

It follows Amy's shock exit from the villa on Monday, with her emotional departure aired in full during Tuesday's episode.
