Viewers admitted that they felt ‘uncomfortable’ watching the ring girl, who has made a beeline for Tommy since arriving in the villa as a bombshell.

On Friday, Maura continued her move on the boxer, but was swiftly rejected by Tommy, who made it clear that he plans to keep his options open by also getting to know Instagrammer Molly-Mae.

Her actions haven’t gone down well with viewers, who have suggested her behaviour is ‘overly sexual’ and is ‘freaking Tommy out’. 

One user pointed out the glaring eight-year age difference between the two contestants, which revealed that Tommy was in school asking his friends about D.T. homework, while Maura attended sultry beach photo shoots.

The tweet with the throwback snaps was captioned: ‘Maura in 2011 vs Tommy in 2011 #LoveIsland.’

The pictures hilariously showed the glaring difference between a 20-year-old Maura and a 12-year-old Tommy at completely dissimilar stages of their lives.  

Another viewer wrote: ‘Watching Tommy and Maura is cringing me out I can’t take another sexual comment or predatory behaviour, can’t believe she’s 28.’ 

During Friday’s episode, Maura had a steamy chat with Tommy. She asked him: ‘Does she turn you on like I do?’ to which a smirking Tommy replied: ‘I’m hugely attracted to you. You know you’re sexy.’

However despite their very cosy chat, Tommy didn’t seem keen to seal it with a kiss in spite of Maura’s repeated requests for him to lock lips with her.

Tommy has had his head turned by ring-girl Maura, but hasn’t made his mind up about whether he prefers her or Molly-Mae.

After the awkward near-kiss encounter, Tommy snuck back into the bedroom and got back into bed with Molly-Mae. 

Maura’s racy behaviour has caused backlash from Love Island viewers. 

Some fans have questioned whether if gender roles were reversed, would Tommy have been booted out for trying to kiss Maura, if she initially clearly told him she didn’t want a kiss.

Maura continued to ruffle feathers at the end of Friday’s episode as she engaged in a very tense chat with Tommy’s current love interest Molly-Mae. 

Later, Molly-Mae asked Curtis for advice as she was confused about whether she wanted to spend time with someone who chose a girl he’d known for ’20 minutes’ over her.

Maura continued to leer over Tommy as he boxes while Molly-Mae commented in the Beach Hut that she will just have to sit back and watch.
