Maura Higgins arrived in what many viewers have complained is a stagnant Love Island villa.

No more.

The 28-year-old ring girl pulled more than a few of the women’s tails when she fed Michael Griffiths, who was partnered with Amber Gills, and later shocked viewers by inviting boxer Tommy Fury into bed with her – in front of his lady, Molly-Mae Hague.

Ah, reality TV – so real. So authentic. So not orchestrated in any way.

After the women in the villa watched her date with Michael and jeered, she told him, “I’ll give them something to talk about,” and then proceeded to feed him a slice of banana.

She went on to flirt her way through a dinner date with Tyson Fury’s 20-year-old brother, and later told fellow newbie Elma Pazar that, when she saw Tommy eating in the kitchen, “I wish he was eating me.”

Fury even said his head has done a "560 degree turn" because of Maura, so um, expect Exorcist vibes in the upcoming episodes?

Drama-hungry viewers are loving it.

One viewer gleefully wrote: “Maura has been rushed to hospital tonight with severe back pains after carrying the entire series of #LoveIsland 2019.”

People are here for the chaos the Irish Maura reigns over

"Absolute marmite"

"Let the games begin"

Fans are high-fiving the producers, basically
