Love Island bombshell Maura Higgins might be heading into the jungle for the next season of ‘I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!’

The bets are on for the Longford lady who shot to fame as a fan favourite on Love Island to go Down Under.

Ladbrokes announced today that Maura is priced at 5/1 to take on a new reality show.

"Love Island fans have long been campaigning for Maura Higgins to do a stint in the jungle,” Nicola McGeady of Ladbrokes says.

"Being no stranger to a trip or two abroad in the name of reality TV, the odds suggest that Maura could finally appear on I’m A Celebrity later this year!”

Maura is a well known Irish icon amongst Love Island fans since her time in the villa.

She finished in fourth place after a shock recoupling with pro-dancer Curtis Pritchard in the final days of the 2019 season.

The couple split shortly after.

Maura had a high profile break-up with Strictly Come Dancing pro Giovanni Pernice last year.

The pair said their relationship had reached a “natural end” in a joint statement posted on their social media accounts.

‘I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here!’ hosted by duo Ant and Dec returns to the jungle this year ahead of an all-star season in 2023.

Fan favourites from the last two decades of the show will appear for a special series in South Africa.
