Maura Higgins’ old job as a ring girl has been revealed with photos emerging of the star posing next to boxer Anthony Joshua.

The Love Island alumna, who also worked as a grid girl, can be seen standing next to Anthony at the boxer’s weigh-in with Russian Alexander Povetkin in 2018.

Wearing a figure-hugging William Hill dress the Irish beauty is also pictured next to 2012 Olympic gold medallist Luke Campbell as he prepared for his rematch against Yvan Mendy.

Not one to hide her light under a bushel, Maura told boxer Tommy Fury about her former profession on Love Island in 2019.

In a subsequently failed bid to impress Tyson Fury’s younger brother she said: “You’re a boxer – you know I’m a ring girl?”

“I’ve only been doing it like two years. Joshua. His last two or three fights in London.”

While Maura may no longer be a ring girl, she continues to carve out a successful modelling career.

Ann Summers made a beeline for the ex- Love Island star, who is now their brand ambassador.

Maura has worked with the brand since 2019 and in August she selected 12 of her favourite Ann Summers looks, which included bodysuits and dresses, two pieces, high necks, and peekaboo bras in rich colours ahead of Autumn.

She also posted a very racy Valentine’s shoot for the lingerie mogul, sending fans into a frenzy.

The Tipperary-native is currently dating Strictly Come Dancing’s Giovanni Pernice.

The pair went Insta official with their relationship in July after they were spotted watching the the Italy Euro 2020 match at Wembley.

Maura posted a sweet snap of the pair with the caption “I’m yours” to which Giovanni responded “You’re mine” alongside an equally adorable pic.

Her followers and friends welcomed the news with one gushing: “Finally a man that kinda matches how hot she is!!!”

Giovanni’s fellow Strictly Come Dancing star friend Neil Jones has high hopes for the pair – and he thinks it won’t be long before they start having children together.

Neil wrote in the comments section of Giovanni’s post: “You two are so cute. Please name your first child after me.”

A source previously told the MailOnline: “Gio and Maura are very much a couple. Everyone know he’s played the field in the past but he is serious about Maura. He’s smitten with her, they’ve become close really quickly and are spending a lot of time together in Blackpool.

“She’s become pals with all of the cast and crew of Him and Me too and they think she’s great. Maura has also met Anton and they got on brilliantly.”
