Maura Higgins has a very busy few months coming up and she filled her followers in during an Instagram Q&A.

The former Love Island star caught up with her followers this weekend and let them know what she has been up to, from shows she has turned down and what her plans are for the future.

Maura has recently taken a step into presenting after making her debut on Love Island in 2019, last year presenting Glow Up Ireland, and receiving rave reviews.

It looks like we can expect to see her a lot more on TV soon, “I am filming a TV show in April. Pretty much all my April is full of filming. It’s very exciting, I’ve lots of stuff coming up,” she said.

How exciting!

Although she told fans that they won’t be seeing her on any more dating shows anytime soon, “I actually turned down Celebs Go Dating a couple of times, only because I feel like one dating show is enough.”

Speaking of dating shows, Maura also won’t be returning to Love Island anytime soon. She has recently spoken out against the rumours that she will be replacing Laura Whitmore on the new series, telling The Sun, “I see Laura getting s**t online. I don’t agree with people saying: ‘It’s not Caroline [Flack].’ She’s a different person and she’s very good at her job.

“I don’t feel it’s fair to come online and say all that s**t. She’s a lovely person and nobody deserves that,” she said.

Continuing, she explained, “There are always so many people on Twitter saying: ‘Oh, I’d love Maura to be the presenter,’ but people don’t understand that they loved me on Love Island because I was so outrageous – the stuff that I would come out with was so vile. If I’m presenting, I can’t do that. I would have a script.

“I’m not going in there as ‘Outrageous Maura’ and to start ranting and raving. I’d be going in there to be a professional presenter and it would be completely different. I do think people are a bit shocked when they meet me because I do actually have a soft side.”

We can’t wait to see what is next for Maura and see her back on our screens…watch this space!
