Love Island’s Maura Higgins tormented by old man taking pics of her through bush

Maura Higgins is tormented by stalkers turning up at her house.

She was especially shaken when one elderly creep got into her garden and started taking pictures of her sunbathing from a bush.

The 2019 Love Island contestant, 30, who has moved from her native Ireland to London, said: “I’ve had groups of people stand outside my window, like groups of young people saying, ‘Maura is in there!’

“I’ve had to close my curtains. I think people have figured out where I live now, which obviously isn’t the best because you lose your privacy then.”

Maura, who is dating her Love Island co-star Chris Taylor, 30, added: “It definitely is scary. Especially with the elderly man, that really scared me.

“I was sitting outside in my dressing gown and I just turned my head and he was so close to me.

“Where my seating area is outside, the bush is right next to it and I looked and saw this man and it was like something from a horror film. He was holding his phone up and I could hear him taking pictures.

“I was like, ‘Oh my God’. That’s definitely one of the downsides to being in the public eye, but the upsides do outweigh the downsides.”

And while it seems some fans are obsessed with the beauty, she's been battling an obsession of her own in recent months.

Maura admitted that she worried she'd gone too far with her fitness regime during lockdown, as it started affecting her periods.

She told the Daily Mail: "I lost my period for four months. Especially at my age, it's obviously not good. I want to have kids someday so I know that's just not a good thing to happen."

Maura and Chris first met on Love Island in 2019 but were nothing more than friends.

Last autumn, though, fans began suspecting they were more than just good pals, and they eventually confirmed they were an item in November.
