Former Love Islander Curtis Pritchard says Dublin and Amsterdam are 'countries' on last night’s episode of Celebs Go Dating: The Mansion.

The professional dancer (25) played a game of 21 Questions with date Sophie (25) on an episode of the reality show yesterday evening.

Sophie grilled Curtis on his likes and dislikes, asking him what his favourite colour is and whether he prefers beach or skiing holidays.

She then asked, “Best place you’ve ever been to? Best country?”

“So, it’s either Amsterdam – I have a very big passion for Amsterdam, I don’t know why – or Dublin,” replied Curtis.

Comedian Rob Beckett chimed in on the voiceover, remarking: “Neither of which are countries.”

Curtis’s geography mix-up left viewers in fits of laughter as they ‘cringed’ at his mistake.

One user took to Twitter to express his disdain, asking: “Does Curtis not know what a country is?”

Others were unimpressed by Curtis and Sophie’s awkward interaction and deemed it cringeworthy. In another hilarious voiceover moment, Rob Beckett parodied the famous James Bond line “The name’s Cringe: Curtis Cringe.”

“21 Questions and 0 Sparks,” one of the tweets replying to the official Celebs Go Dating Twitter read.

Curtis is appearing on the E4 reality dating show to find love after split from ex and fellow Love Island contestant Maura Higgins, who is now in a new relationship. However, luck did not seem to be on his side last night when Sophie revealed that she was not interested in pursuing things further with him.

There has been lots of support for Curtis since last night’s episode Twitter. One fan tweeted, “@CurtisPritchard is such a sweety, I really hope he finds someone who loves him for who he truly is.”

Celebs Go Dating: The Mansion airs Sunday to Thursday at 9pm on E4 and can be streamed on free catchup service All 4.
