Molly-Mae Hague recognised Maura Higgins when she walked in the 'Love Island' villa.

The 23-year-old star and Maura, 31, both appeared on the show in 2019, and Molly-Mae admits that she'd previously come across the brunette beauty at the Cove Beach Club in Dubai.

In a vlog post, Molly-Mae shared: "Fun fact, this is the beach club in which I first saw Maura before we even knew who each other were.

"Then when she came on the show I was like, 'I recognise you. I saw you at Cove Beach Club' and she was like: 'Oh my gosh, I saw you too! I recognise you as well'.

"And the rest is history really. But that was about four years ago now."

Maura actually threatened to put a spanner in the works of Molly-Mae's burgeoning romance with Tommy Fury at one point in time.

But the blonde beauty previously revealed that she discussed the issue with Maura and they're now "best friends".

Molly-Mae said in her memoir: "Of course on 'Love Island' she was interested in Tommy for a bit, but there is no issue there.

"After Tommy started getting closer with me, she said to me: 'Look, I'll never go near him again in that way, you know', and ever since then we've been best friends."

Molly-Mae and Tommy met on the hit TV show, and she recently admitted that she hopes to marry the 23-year-old boxer - who is the half-brother of world champion Tyson Fury - one day.

Molly-Mae made the confession after she was mistakenly introduced as "Mrs Fury" by an interviewer.

She said: "It's fine. Don't worry. Maybe soon [we will get married]. Hopefully."
