Love Island's Curtis Pritchard is slammed by viewers after he 'RUINS' Maura Higgins' birthday surprise for her brother in Ireland on live TV

He dramatically boosted his profile over the summer, when he competed on the most recent season of Love Island, eventually placing fourth with Maura Higgins.

But Curtis Pritchard risked incurring her wrath on Friday, when he revealed during a live appearance on Good Morning Britain that she was paying a surprise birthday visit to her brother in Ireland — before she'd even arrived.

Appearing on the ITV show alongside his dancer brother AJ, the reality star, 23, made the revelation while talking about his relationship, prompting viewers to slam him for 'ruining' his 28-year-old partner's big surprise for her sibling.

After being asked about his romance, Curtis told the hosts: 'Things are incredible, I’ve been very fortunate with things to do with work, things to do with Maura.

‘[It’s] fantastic, so good. She’s gone to Ireland, I believe. I can’t say what for, because it’s a surprise. I don’t want to say it just in case her brother’s watching…’

Despite not being prodded by hosts Ben Shephard and Kate Garraway, he revealed: ‘It’s a surprise birthday party for him. I’m hoping he’s not watching right now.’

Within moments, viewers took to Twitter to complain about his loose-lipped antics, with one writing: 'He is useless at keeping a secret.'

'As if Curtis just revealed live on TV that Maura has gone to Ireland for her brother's SURPRISE party,' stated another on the micro-blogging site.

Apparently a little more horrified than the others, a third ranted:' WHAT A COMPLETE MUPPET!!! Just ruined a SURPRISE birthday Party? Disown the p***k.'

Strictly Come Dancing star AJ said: 'I’m so excited to go on that tour. It’s, as a dancer, what you dream of doing. It’s still going to be called AJ Live, I’m sorry Curtis.'

Curtis responded: 'I will feel better if we can go AJ/Curtis Live. It’s a dream come true. I’ve always wanted to do a tour and be the lead with my brother. That’s special, we're creating it.'

Added AJ: 'We've always danced together so to produce and create your own show is amazing.'

With dance being the main topic of discussion, the brothers naturally took to the studio floor to teach some dance steps to the hosts, with Curtis guiding Kate, while AJ joined forces with Ben.

Curtis and Maura met over the summer in the Love Island villa, where they finished in fourth place during the grand finale.

Although their co-stars have gone on to either make things official, or break up, Curtis revealed he's in no rush to 'put a label' on their relationship.

The couple, who have been dating for more than two months now, are yet to call each other boyfriend and girlfriend, and the rumour mill has gone into overdrive that they secretly split.

However, Curtis rubbished claims that they aren't together, musing: 'It’s weird, everything is fantastic with us.'

Defending their decision not to make things official, he continued: 'I’m very old fashioned. I believe don’t rush things in life, think of the longevity, think of the long term.

'Things have a plan. If you are with someone… its back to labels again, everyone labels things these days. But if you are seeing someone, you don’t go out and do something with anyone else, you just focus on them.'

Curtis has spoken about his disdain for labels in the past, opting not to put a label on his sexuality after he revealed that he would be open to dating men in the future.

Asked whether he feels a responsibility to discuss his sexuality in the public eye, the former Dancing With The Stars professional mused: 'Love Island does reach out to a lot of people, and if you use it properly it can be a platform and can support people.'

He continued: 'My goal in this life is to be happy. And whatever makes you happy you should do, whether it’s this, that, whatever it is.'
