Maura Higgins has landed a major modelling contract with an international management agency.

The former Love Island star signed a contract with Elite Model Management in London, a brand owned by Elite World Group.

Elite Model Management currently represents numerous high-profile models such as Adriana Lima and Kendall Jenner.

Taking to Instagram on Sunday to reveal the exciting news with a photo inside Elite’s London office, Maura tagged the agency and wrote: “Here’s to new beginnings.”

The Longford native told The Sun: “I’m so excited about this new chapter in my life, working in TV alongside modelling has always been one of my biggest passions and I can’t wait to share some of the projects I’m going to be working on.”

An Elite spokesman added: “We’re thrilled to sign Maura. Elite prides itself on working with a variety of different talents who are at the forefront of their careers.”

It comes after Maura reportedly left her former management company Off Limits Entertainment – who she has worked with since leaving the Love Island villa in 2019 - last week in the hopes of taking her career in a new direction.

“Maura has left the management company she signed with after coming out of the Love Island villa,” a source told MailOnline.

“They have supported her from the beginning but now she’s ready to start a new chapter in her career and wants to focus on modelling.

“She’s desperate to move away from reality TV – she wants a new challenge and has always thrived off her fashion and beauty campaigns.

“It’s important for Maura to claim back some of her personal life, her recent breakup from Giovanni hit her hard and she knows for her next relationship to work she will need to keep it private.”
