Love Island’s Curtis Pritchard admits he and Tommy Fury barely speak anymore

Love Island is famous for not only sparking long-lasting romances, but also close friends, with many stars making friends for life from their time on the show.

But Curtis Pritchard, 25, has revealed that he hardly ever speaks to his one-time bestie Tommy Fury, 22.

Speaking to The Sun, Curtis admitted: “I don’t speak to that many people from Love Island now. I focus on myself and everything that is going on.

“Me and Tommy talk every now and again but I don’t really talk to the other guys.”

He added: “We have gone our separate ways and that’s the way it is.”

The dancer and the boxer's strong friendship won over viewers during the 2019 series of Love Island.

They even had their own reality show, The Boxer and the Ballroom Dancer, after they left the villa.

Last October, Curtis was interviewed by his brother, fellow dancer AJ Pritchard, 26, on their podcast AJ vs Curtis, admitting their friendship had drifted.

AJ asked his younger sibling if he was still in touch with Tommy. A subdued Curtis replied: "If you want the honest honest truth – I haven't spoken to him in ages actually.

"I got a new phone and I lost his number. I have messaged him on Instagram a couple of times but I've been pied off by him.

He continued: "I've messaged Tommy and he hasn't replied. We are friends but we haven't spoken in a while."

Curtis was in a relationship with Maura Higgins, 30, after Love Island but the couple eventually broke up.

Asked how he feels about Maura now dating Strictly Come Dancing's Giovanni Pernice, 30, Curtis said:

“I wish them all the best and we will have to see where that goes. I think it’s great timing for them both, so we’ll see.”

Curtis is still keeping himself busy, though. He's currently helping AJ’s girlfriend Abbie Quinnen, 23, prepare for the London Landmarks Half Marathon, which she is running to raise funds for the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital following her stay there.

Abbie was a patient at the hospital after suffering third-degree burns when an online video stunt with her Strictly boyfriend went badly wrong.

Doctors fought to save her face and arms from severe scarring.
