MAURA Higgins has finally confirmed Chris Taylor is her BOYFRIEND after months of speculation.

Gemma Collins said: “I’m so happy for you ???”
And Love Island fan Jacqueline Jossa penned: “Thank f**k!”
Last week the pair drove fans wild when they tool part in the ‘Kiss your best friend’ challenge on Instagram.
It looked more than a little romantic, with Chris, 29, whipping his shirt off, before lifting her above his head.
Chris and Maura have been linked for months, after she split from fellow Love Islander Curtis Pritchard.
But she had insisted they were not dating, telling fans: “We are the best of friends.”

She recently said, when asked during a Q&A video: “This was the first question that came in and I’m not even a bit surprised.
“No, we’re not dating. We are the best of friends. We just get on really well. We got on really well in villa, but not a lot of that was shown.”
In August, The Sun revealed Maura had spent the night at Chris’s house after the pair went on a night out bowling and ice-skating together.
