Speaking of his relationship with Maura (30), Curtis has said that it “didn’t really end in the best way” on Channel 4'sseries Celebs Go Dating: The Mansion.

“I’ve never ever thought or never wanted to say bad things about anyone, but my previous relationship wasn’t the healthiest I would say,” Curtis confessed on the show.

“With Maura, it just started to go downhill a little bit really.”

“She’s now in a relationship, just recently got in a relationship with her ‘best friend’ who came into Love Island and stated that he fancied Maura.”

Curtis admitted that Maura wasn’t his usual type but described her as “red hot, fiery, attractive.”

It is not yet known when Curtis and AJ will be appearing on our screens in Hollyoaks but filming has reportedly already begun.
