Maura Higgins has shared sultry beach snaps as she returned to work following a mystery illness.

The 31-year-old claimed she lost a stone in weight after she was struck down with an illness that left her exhausted and bedbound.

Taking to Instagram, the model shared two snaps as she posed in a white bikini on a beach.

The snaps, captioned ‘wet weekends’ show off Maura’s washboard abs as she poses for the camera.


On her Instagram stories, Maura asked fans for help picking a lingerie set for an Ann Summers reel she plans to film.

Sharing a previous reel she created for the brand, she also asked for inspiration for the type of video she should create.

“Also… any creative ideas you guys have… I wanna know.”

With her busy work schedule back in full swing, it appears as though the former Love Island star is feeling alot better following her illness.

In February, Maura revealed to fans that was “living off cereal” after she became unwell.

“I don’t think I have ever been so unwell,” she said.

Posting a snap of a bubble bath she added: “After three full days in bed, I finally have the energy to wash myself. (Disgusting I know).”

She took to social media to explain why she had been so quiet online and asked her followers what she should eat while being stuck at home alone with her illness.

Posting a picture of a bowl of cereal in bed she asked: “For those of you who live on your own, what do you eat when you are too ill to cook?”

“I’ve been living off cereal.”
