Maura Higgins looked red hot in a sexy Santa outfit that she slipped into to show off Ann Summers' latest festive lingerie range. 

The former Love Islander appeared in a video for the launch in which she roller blades through a room full of models and TOWIE's Chloe Ross, who also stars in the campaign.

Maura (30) posed in a figure-hugging body suit with sheer and criss-cross ribbon detailing, before changing into a sexy Santa outfit.

She wore her brunette tresses in a crimped style and wore a festive slick of red lipstick to complete the look.

Maura recently hit back after some of her Instagram followers claimed that she photoshopped an image of herself.

The Longford native shared a stunning snap of herself wearing hot pink Tom Ford trousers paired with a black crop shirt to show off her abs.

While many fans praised the beauty for how well she looked, others were quick to question if the image was altered.

“I love this sis so much but that waistband is fishy, I’m sure she’s fit af even without whatever edit she used there,” one said.

“Is that a bad photoshop job on the waist? Stunning girl with an amazing body, no need to edit if it is,” added another.

Another fan suggested that her abs were thanks to make-up tricks: "wonder who drew on her six-pack?”

Soon after the image was shared, Maura took to Instagram Stories to set the record straight.

“Nahhh my dms are full… ‘too much photoshop’ proud to say no hunnys this is me & my raw camera roll from last night,” she said, hitting back at the claims.

She then shared a screen-recorded video of her camera showing various images taken that showed her waist looking the same in all the snaps.

“Just brightened and sharpened… sue me,” she added.

Maura split from dancer Giovanni Pernice after just four months together. It had been reported that Pernice was the one to end things, citing his commitment to the BBC dancing competition.

Rumours began to swirl that they called it quits after they deleted all traces of one another from social media.

Confirming the end of their romance, Giovanni said: "Firstly, great relationships with great people can come to a natural end. This has been the case for me recently. There was absolutely no wrong-doing and this should be the end of any speculation.

“The show has highlighted many important conversations for different communities and increased representation. These are the conversations which deserve the time, energy & recognition.”

Maura previously dated fellow Love Island star Curtis Pritchard, with whom she came fourth on the reality dating show.

Before her relationship with Giovanni, Maura was in a relationship with her “best friend” Christopher Taylor who also appeared on the TV show.
