Francesca Allen brands Curtis Pritchard ‘disrespectful’ on Friday night’s Love Island after he massaged a topless Maura Higgins infront of her.
The professional dancer, 23, coupled up with the latest bombshell on Thursday night’s episode much to the Irish grid girl’s horror, who had planned to do the same before she was pipped to the post.
And trying to get one up on Francesca after stealing her man, Maura, 28, got Curtis to tend to the knots in her back – but the cosy moment didn’t go unnoticed by Francesca, who fumes to pal Joanna Chimonides.

And Curtis’ flirty moment comes back to haunt him later in the evening when an angry Francesca blasts him for his behaviour.
In a sneak peek ahead of this evening’s instalment, Francesca says while they’re enjoying a meal prepared by the boys: ‘I did find it a little disrespectful. I find that quite full on.’
Before their heated chat, Francesca is seen in the Beach Hut explaining how she believes she and Curtis could be the perfect match.
She shares: ‘I do think our personalities are really similar. I haven’t really found someone before that is as positive and silly and giggly as me.’

Having eyes for both girls, Curtis tells Tommy and Molly-Mae he’s definitely torn between the two girls but doesn’t want to ‘rush’ a decision.
He says: ‘I don’t want to rush it but I know I need to get a move on because I’ll push them both away.
‘I wish one of them was horrible, it would make the decision so much easier!
The trio have become embroiled in a love triangle in recent days when new girl Francesca was given the option to pick first during a dramatic recoupling on Thursday’s episode.
Store manager Francesca, 23, swooped in and revealed that she wanted to couple up with Curtis after being torn between him and their fellow Islander Marvin.
Maura looked crestfallen as Francesca revealed her hopes of getting to know Curtis more after entering the villa just days earlier and enjoying a date with him.

The Irish beauty made her feelings known as during her own recoupling speech, where she chose to pair up with Chris, she said the evening ‘hadn’t gone as planned’.
However moments after being picked by Francesca, Curtis took disheartened Maura aside and reassured her that the ‘door wasn’t closed’ on a potential relationship.
