Love Island fans convinced Maura and Chris’ shock relationship ‘is a prank’

THE REAL DEAL?

LOVE Island fans are convinced Maura Higgins and Chris Taylor's shock relationship could be 'a prank'.

The former villa stars, who went public with their romance yesterday, have sparked speculation their relationship may be a joke.

Chris, 30, has spent recent months entertaining his followers with a series of hilarious pranks and challenges on TikTok.

The couple previously appeared in one together, with Maura pretending to perform a sex act on Chris.

The Irish stunner, 30, left Chris' mind racing as she kneeled down in the clip - only to pull out the TV remote control.

But it appears their love of pranks has left some fans wondering if their romance is the real deal.

One wrote: "Omg wait is this real? Please tell me they aren’t pranking us."

A second said: "Omg if this is a joke I'm going to be actually annoyed. Some good news in 2020 finally!!!"

Another added: "They better not be f**king with us."

Following their announcement, Chris' Instagram followers also rocketed to one million.

The pair, who have always denied romance rumours, embraced in a photo on Instagram last night as Irish stunner Maura told fans: "He's mine".

Chris, from Leicester, melted hearts by posting the same photo from their recent trip to Dubai, and penned: "Turns out I fell in love with my best mate."
