She has been in high demand since leaving the villa and has also landed an agony aunt gig on This Morning.

It comes after Maura and boyfriend Curtis Pritchard appeared to quash speculation that they’d split with a romantic date night at Sheesh in Essex earlier this month.

The couple documented their romantic evening on Instagram, before posting hilarious videos from their hotel the following morning.

Their appearances followed Maura apologising to fans for cancelling an appearance at a Birmingham club on Sunday evening.

The brunette was keen to explain why she missed the personal appearance, after she was spotted with botox and fillers doctor Joshua Van Der Aa, at London nightclub Mahiki that same evening.

Maura revealed that she has been feeling ‘run down’ due to her hectic schedule ever since leaving the villa last month and admitted she needs some down days in order to recuperate.

Taking to her Instagram stories, she said: ‘I wanted to come on and say to everyone who was coming to see me at my PA I’m sorry that I didn’t make it. To be honest I am completely burnt out I haven’t had a day off since leaving the villa.’

She continued: ‘I haven’t had any social time or anything, so I need to take a few days off and sort my head out, I’m completely run down and I’ve been in with a doctor.’

However after a good night’s sleep she revealed she was feeling much better, adding: ‘I’m feeling good because last night I got a good sleep and i haven’t had a lot of sleep since leaving the villa.’

‘I do feel bad that I’ve had to cancel some work for the next couple of days. But I need to do it for me because I am just shattered I’ve not had time to do normal day-to-day stuff like go out for dinner or the cinema.

‘I need to, because it’s good for the head to get out and do normal things. It’s a big shock to the system when you come out of the villa and its so hectic. I’ve not had a down day. I just wanted to come on and say that.’

That same night she shared snaps of herself at STK Steakhouse in London, where she was joined by her sister Becki, with the pair eventually making their way to popular nightspot Mahiki.

Shortly afterwards she was seen chatting to Joshua, who has reportedly formed a close friendship with Maura.

Up to that point the Irish beauty had not been seen in the company of Curtis since joining him for a double date with his older brother AJ and girlfriend Abbie Quinnen days earlier.

The absence sparked a sea of speculation from fans that the couple had secretly split, but recent posts from both Maura and Curtis have slammed the rumours.
