Love Island bombshell arrival Maura Higgins has been filmed using the homophobic slur “f****t”.
The 28-year-old, who is entering the villa on Wednesday’s episode, has been warned by show bosses about her language before even appearing on the show after using the word in a video which was reportedly filmed in March.
According to MailOnline, the model and grid girl was quoting the film The Hangover, when she giggles: “Paging Dr F****t!”.
A spokesperson for Love Island has insisted that islanders are warned about using derogatory language during their time on the show.

Speaking before entering the villa, she said: “I would go for personality more than anything.
"I would definitely look for someone who is really honest and a very confident guy, but not arrogant and definitely someone who makes me laugh.
“They have to have banter, without a doubt.”
Maura has previously worked with singer Liam Payne and has revealed she’s always in the presence of top athletes.
She said: “Through my modelling work, I’ve worked with athletes and people who’ve been in the public eye. I did a visual shoot for Liam Payne as well.”
