Maura Higgins breaks silence after Joey Essex snog by licking a pal | The Sun

MAURA Higgins has broken her silence after her snog with Joey Essex by cheekily licking a pal in a social media post.

The former Love Island star – who rose to fame alongside best pal Molly-Mae Hague in 2019 – took to her Instagram stories with a video clip of her licking her friend to "greet her".

Maura, 31, was pictured kissing Dancing On Ice's Joey Essex at the Pride of Britain Awards, before heading home in the same taxi.

The reality TV star had kept quiet on social media about the kiss – finally breaking her silence this afternoon with a cheeky video.

Maura shared a series of clips showing off her bright yellow ball gown that she wore for the red carpet event last night.

She then went on to repost a video of her licking the face of her friend and make-up artist Krystal Dawn at the event.

Maura could be seen leaning in towards Krystal in the video, before sticking out her tongue and pretending to lick her pal's cheek.

"She's a licker," Krystal captioned the video alongside a shrugging emoji, with Maura jokingly adding: "It's how I greet people."

It comes after Maura was seen locking lips with Joey, 32, inside London's Grosvenor House before leaving the venue in the same taxi.

The former Towie star pulled Maura in towards him and held her close without caring people were watching.
