Fans hoping to see Maura Higgins on Love Island All Stars will be disappointed.
The worldwide spin-off, in which Islanders from other editions of the franchise compete in various tasks, will air very soon, with Maya Jama front and centre as host.
While the cast for the series has yet to be announced, Megan Barton Hanson and Curtis Pritchard have been rumoured to have joined the show, which will feature past stars from the UK, US, and Australian editions.
When Irish singer Maura arrived on the series in 2019, she quickly became a fan favourite, providing us some of the show’s most iconic moments.
And, despite just being hired as the social ambassador for the show’s US edition, the 32-year-old is over the Love Island experience.
During her latest Instagram Q&A she said: I’m not sure how many times I have to answer this.
‘I’m never going to go back on to Love Island. Like no because I didn’t enjoy myself, it was such an incredible experience, it changed my life, it gave me the platform I have today.
‘But I feel like I’ve done it once and I think once is enough and I’m a bit old for that.’
She continued: ‘I’m not going to go back on the show, I feel like I’m really enjoying what I’m doing… I just don’t really want to go backwards, I want to look forward.
‘Like not saying anything bad about people that would do it again but like each to their own but yeah just not me.’
Lifted Entertainment’s boss stated that he ‘couldn’t wait’ for the spin-off as he teased fans about what’s in store.
‘It has been rumoured for a long now, but we are happy to officially confirm that we are creating Love Island: All Stars early next year for ITV2 and ITVX,’ Mike Spencer said.
‘It’s set to be a must-watch series seeing some of your favourite Islanders from across the years heading back to the stunning South African villa to once again “graft” as their search for love continues. I simply can’t wait.’
Love Island Games premieres on Wednesday November 1 on Peacock.
