Maura originally joined season 5 of Love Island UK as a bombshell and was an instant hit with viewers, even though she didn’t end up winning. However, Maura won’t be a bombshell this time, though, as its official Instagram page announced that Maura will be the new social ambassador for the fifth series of the US adaptation.

“This just in… @maurahiggins will be your social ambassador this season bringing (sneaking) you the BTS scoop all summer! #LoveIslandUSA,” the announcement read.

Maura also made her own Instagram post, where she wrote: “I’M BACK!!!!!!!!! Bringing you all the behind the scenes gossip live from Fiji for @loveislandusa.”

Fans were ecstatic hearing the news, but also slightly disappointed that Maura wasn’t joining as a bombshell.

One person commented on Instagram: “Don’t scare me I actually thought she was gonna be a contestant and almost lost my shit.”

Another person wrote: “Idk why y’all are complaining. Maura is a Love Island ICON! We could use some of their spark because the US version is okay at best.”

“Yum yesss! The most excited I’ve ever been for Love Island US,” a third said.
