He went from a professional ballroom dancer to reality star and has now tried his hand at presenting.

The Love Island star, 23, faced an awkward run-in with his ex Amy Hart, who requested a private conversation with the star, shortly before acerbic Piers Morgan branded all stars of the show 'brain dead zombies' - to which he agreed.

Shine bright like Amy in a dress by Style Cheat

Winter is approaching, which means it’s time to stock up on party dresses.

In our opinion, nothing beats a sequin mini and Amy Hart’s version by Style Cheat ticks all the boxes. The sexy number is guaranteed to flatter every figure thanks to its wrap neckline and tie-waist, while the silver embellishment makes it perfect for a special occasion. Bravo to her stylist, Jeff Mehmet, for creating this look!

Curtis shot to fame on this year's Love Island alongside Amy, who he left heartbroken when he decided to call their romance off, leading her to sensationally leave this year's Love Island prematurely, and his romance with Maura Higgins. 

As he held his red carpet interviews, he grabbed Amy for a chat - during which she said: 'I need to ask you something later actually, in secret!'  

Curtis the asked her if she knew what Palooza meant, to which she said: Palooza, party, of course! Of course it’s correct, I am always correct!'

After the interview, Amy told The Sun: 'He grabbed me for an interview because he's working the red carpet. I fumbled my words because I didn't expect to see him.

'It was a bit awkward. It always is when you bump into an ex - never mind getting interviewed by them!' 

The former flight attendant, 27 - who was last pictured with the dancer at the ITV2 series' reunion special in August - revealed she fumbled her words as he approached her for an interview at the event.

Far from his run-in with Amy being his only red carpet woe, he then chatted to Piers, who told him he calls all Love Island people braid dead zombies.

Chatting away: Curtis also interviewed his girlfriend Maura

Clearly staggered by the rather harsh yet hilarious review, Curtis said: You know what, I’m going to agree with you!' 

In what was undoubtedly another awkward twist, Maura was also in attendance and put on a cosy display with Amy on social media.  

Amy was left devastated after Dancing With The Stars pro Curtis revealed he had considered severing their relationship to re-couple with model Jordan Riane, prompting her to cut short her time in the Love Island villa. 

Oh dear! As he held his red carpet interviews, he grabbed Amy for a chat - during which she said: 'I need to ask you something later actually, in secret!'

Reflecting on the experience, she recently revealed it toughened her up and made her realise that she will never find the perfect man - because he doesn't exist. 

Speaking to Badoo podcast The Truth Flirts with Mel B, the star explained: 'When I was in the villa, and it went wrong for me and Curtis it was (Islander) Michael (Griffiths) who said to me, "the thing is you’ve got 80% of what Curtis wants... 

'Jordan’s got the other 20%, so he’s got to decide whether he wants the 80% or the 20%, because nobody in your life is ever going to have the 100% of what you need."'
