LOVE Island star Maura Higgins has branded herself "fantastic" as she hit back at trolls who claimed she had photoshopped her pictures.
Maura posted then deleted a smouldering thong bikini selfie after her comments were bombarded with allegations of photoshopping the snap.
She then took to Instagram stories to admit she "couldn't be dealing with the s**t" and to prove it wasn't fake, she shared a behind-the-scene video.
"So my recent post that I just uploaded, yeah I've deleted it," she said, "I just couldn't be dealing with the s**t, I just actually couldn't be dealing with the s**t."
Mimicking the comments, she quipped: "'Oh that's so photoshopped, uhhhhh'."
"Get over it! And by the way, it's not actually photoshopped, yeah there's different lighting on it because I put a filter on it and just to prove you are wrong, I'm going to upload the video on my story, just to prove that I actually am fantastic."
Maura, who found fame on the 2019 series of Love Island, then shared the Boomerang video before returning to filming her message, retorting: "I cannot stop laughing.
"I feel like lockdown is sending us all crazy. It's just not like me to delete a photo just when I get some abuse so yeah I'll put it back up and deal with the abuse – I always have done.
"It's just the lockdown, we're all losing our marbles, but send the hate my way."
The Love Island beauty had slipped into the leopard print two-piece and took a cheeky mirror shot.
The sexy shot comes after Dancing On Ice pros Carlotta Edwards and Alex Demetriou split up — after he became close to celeb partner Maura.
The professional skaters are said to be “taking a break” from their four-year marriage but pals fear it is all over — amid claims that Alex, 28, is in constant contact with Maura, 29.
Carlotta, 30, has taken off her wedding ring and flown back to her native Canada while Alex — who removed his band in January — has remained in the UK.
The couple’s relationship started to crumble as Alex danced with Maura on the ITV series earlier this year.
