The 28-year-old is busy preparing for her next TV challenge - appearing on the celeb skating competition.

She was spotted in black leggings, black boots and a warm white puffa jacket as she showed off her long slender legs.

The beauty wore her hair tied up in a bun with no make-up as she made her way into a taxi from the ice rink.

Maura is joining the likes of former chat show host Trisha Goddard and telly veteran Michael Barrymore.

Irish beauty Maura, 28, has only skated twice in her life and has admitted she is likely to "throw a strop" if she finds the training too difficult.

The brunette said she required someone firm to keep her in place. She said: "I need someone strict to keep me in line. Otherwise I’ll just throw a strop and lay on the floor."

Presenter Joe Swash is set to join her on the ice skates this January plus 23-year-old Perri Kiely who is hoping to skate his way to success with his moves.

Brave Model Caprice will be back on the tele after surviving a brain tumour in 2017 while Ian 'H' Watkins is also on the lineup in a bid to make a big showbiz comeback.

While Maura hasn't been at the rink, her and former Love Island partner Curtis Pritchard have JUST made their relationship official since getting together on the reality show in the summer.

The former grid girl, 28, told OK! Magazine: "He asked and I said yes obviously.

"He took me away for a weekend break and he asked me out over dinner in London the next day."

Revealing why he took his time, Curtis, 23, added: "I want something that's going to last forever. There's no point in rushing things. We've only known each other a short amount of time.”

Viewers were surprised when the pair got together saying they were too different - but they've defended their pairing saying: “People say we're opposites. But opposites attract!”

Maura went onto have a relationship with Curtis Pritchard after he dumped fellow Islander Amy Hart.
