Love Island’s Curtis Pritchard ‘needs new clothes after gaining weight in the villa’

Love Island producers have reportedly been forced to order Curtis Pritchard new clothes after he apparently gained weight in the villa.

The professional dancer, 23, is said to have gone up two dress sizes during his time on the dating show as he takes a break from his gruelling ballroom training, the Daily Star reported.  

Insiders told the publication that Curtis is used to burning hundreds of calories a day with his active job but is now struggling to fit into his clothes.

A source told the paper: ‘Curtis took some clothes with him and there were also outfits provided by sponsors. But he had to ask for some new ones because he is struggling to fit into them now.’

‘Curtis normally burns off a lot of calories because he’s a professional dancer, but obviously in the villa he’s not been training.’

However, another insider told MailOnline: ‘It is astonishing that there have been calls for body diversity yet an islander who has allegedly put on weight is now being trolled because of it.’

‘It is incredibly irresponsible that any Islander would be body shamed in this way and we would always discourage anyone from making appearance based comments that could be hurtful to the islanders and their families’.

It comes after claims the 23-year-old star’s refusal to have sex in the villa is actually an attempt to secure a long coveted role as a ballroom pro on Strictly Come Dancing alongside his brother AJ Pritchard.

Curtis left Maura Higgins furious and sexually frustrated when he rebuffed her attempts to have sex with him earlier this week.

And fans definitely aren’t buying the dancer’s endless excuses about why he couldn’t sleep with her (which included being too tired, having a headache, two of his best friends leaving the villa, feeling drained and Anna’s comments weighing on his mind).

He told journalists before entering the villa: ‘Joining Strictly is an opportunity that I would never turn down but who knows.’

Curtis also declared he definitely wouldn’t be having intercourse during his time on the show – although things have been steamier than he planned with Maura under the covers thus far.

He explained: ‘I won’t be having sex on TV – that’s a private matter, if somebody does that, that’s what they want to do but it’s not what I would like to do.

‘I feel it’s a very private matter and should be done behind closed doors, not for the world to see. It should be between you and your loved ones.

‘Kisses are fine. Everything further than that, it should be a private matter.’

Switched on viewers also claimed to have picked up on Curtis’ game plan.

One shared: ‘Curtis is only there to win 50k… and maybe get a job on strictly with his brother.’

Another posted: ‘Maura/Curtis date seemed incredibly dull and forceful tbh. It’s like theyre trying to convince themselves they really really like each other but honestly I think Maura is just sexually frustrated and Curtis is eyeing up that 50k and Strictly coaching contract #LoveIsland (sic)’. 

‘Curtis looking for a Strictly spot or something with those dance moves’, another joked as the Islander once again showed off his footwork yet again on his date with Maura. 

Another viewer pointed out: ‘Maura, strictly would never take curtis if he’s hit it on national telly’.

Meanwhile, Curtis’ ex Amy Hart has been reflecting on her former flame’s behaviour since she left the villa in an exclusive chat.

Insisting she had no hard feelings, the air hostess said: ‘I really hope Curtis and Maura are really happy together because at the end of the day, that’s what important…

Reflecting on Curtis’ meddling antics – which caused an explosive row between Anna and Jordan last week – Amy said he needed to stop dishing out advice.

‘Because he acts as the dad of the villa, you forget he’s ONLY 23. Wish he’d stop getting himself in these situations because he is a really good guy’, she said.

Speaking in a new video for VO5, Amy also explained why she had gone for the chop after leaving the villa.

She said: ‘The inspiration behind my new haircut was that my mum said I went in a girl and came out a lady! I just felt like i had changed on the inside and I needed to change on the outside.’
