Maura Higgins had an awkward run-in with ex Chris Taylor’s housemates Michael Griffiths and Jordan Hames.

The Love Island star, 30, who has been linked to Strictly professional Giovanni Pernice, was attending the reopening of London In the Sky at The O2 on Wednesday evening when the “uncomfortable” encounter happened.

An onlooker told OK! : “Michael and Jordan were already at the bar together when Maura walked in with her friends. They didn’t even acknowledge her and she seemed really uncomfortable.

"They didn’t speak all night.

"It was strange to say they’re supposed to be friends and she spent a lot of the time at the house when she was with Chris.”

Maura and Chris, 30, announced their shock split in May.

The pair confirmed their break-up after six months together in separate statements on their Instagram Stories.

Maura wrote: “It breaks my heart to even type this.

"But I wanted to let everyone know that myself and Chris have made the joint decision to end our relationship.

“There is no wrong doing on either side… We still love, care and respect each other deeply. From the minute we met each other we’ve been very close friends and that will never change.

“There is no regret. Life is about taking chances. We wanted to make this work but we have realised we work better being friends.

“Whilst I appreciate people may speculate or create false stories, this is the truth. I wish Chris nothing but the best and I will always be one of his biggest supporters.”

The star added: “Thank you for all the love and support.”

Chris wrote: “Hey guys. After some very heartfelt conversations over the past few days, myself and Maura are very sad to announce that we have decided to part ways.

“We are both still on very good terms and this was a mutual decision where nobody had done anything wrong. We will remain friends, as we have been since day 1 and I will always be in Maura’s corner and have her back.

“We are both going through a very tough time with this atm, so please take any speculation with a metric tonne of salt, cos this is the only truth (and as always, trolls can kindly f*** off).

“Thank you for all the love and support you’ve given us, it’s truly been appreciated.”

Maura has since been linked to Giovanni after they previously sparked rumours of a romance when they appeared to enjoy a Cornish getaway together.
