It comes after Curtis lashed out at ex-girlfriend Maura and his ‘close’ friend Chris after learning of their new romance.
Romance: Maura and Chris recently confirmed their romance on Instagram after months of speculation
The dancer, 24, dated Maura for seven months after meeting her on the 2019 series of Love Island, where Chris was also a contestant.
And while his romance with Maura came to an end in March, he has now revealed that he feels ‘hurt’ and ‘betrayed’ after she shared news that she’s now moved on to start dating Chris.
Speaking to The Sun, he said: ‘I feel betrayed by them both — two people I was very close to. When I saw the pictures, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t feel hurt. I was upset. How long has this truly been going on for?’
Denying once again that he was ever unfaithful during his time with Maura, Curtis went on to suggest that Chris was waiting in the wings for the chance to date Maura.

He explained: ‘If you look back on everything — and I am looking back on it now — I’m like, “Curtis, all the signs were bloomin’ there, why didn’t you realise then?”
‘You just don’t when you are in that situation. You trust what they say. Now her true colours are shown. They said they would never ever be together, and here they are.’
Curtis added that he was particularly hurt by Chris because he ‘supported’ and was ‘a really good person’ to him during their time together in the Love Island villa.
MailOnline has contacted representatives for Maura and Chris for comment.
