Ovie is not the only star of the show to nab a This Morning role, as Maura Higgins made her debut on This Morning on Monday, before which she cheekily quipped she’s got the ‘flutters’ about the position.

The grid girl, who made the final with her beau Curtis Pritchard, had the backing of the nation on Love Island thanks to her no-nonsense attitude and fiery nature.

 Maura, 28, won praise when she starred This Morning for a special segment called ‘Maura Than Meets The Eye’ where she dishes out her straight-talking advice.

She was left flustered as host of the show Eamonn Holmes touched on one of her crude catchphrases by asking if she was ‘fluttering’ during Monday’s episode of the magazine show.

Maura was making her debut on the ITV show after landing a presenting gig, when her infamous ‘f*nny flutters’ catchphrase came up.

During a chat with Ruth Langsford and Eamonn, the fellow Irish presenter asked her: ‘Are you fluttering at the minute?’

Maura took the cheeky comment in her stride as she responded: ‘It’s a dream of mine. I’m pinching myself. It’s amazing. I never would have thought I would have got this amazing opportunity.’
