Maura Higgins recalls steamy fling with woman before Joey Essex kiss

Maura Higgins has recalled a steamy fling she had with a woman before she was seen enjoying a cheeky kiss with Joey Essex earlier this week.

The 31 year old confessed all about her rendezvous as she spoke about her love life on ITV2 show Shopping with Keith Lemon in an episode airing tonight.

Maura is seen in the episode going on a toiletry shopping dash with host Keith as she opens up about her fling on the show.

When asked by Keith if she’s “been with a lady", Maura replied: “I actually have. It was years and years ago and it was just a drunken night thing."

After reflection, she added: "I am more…man."

Keith then asked Maura if it felt different kissing a woman, to which she responded: "It was but I was very drunk, you know."

Maura’s revelation comes after she was pictured kissing TOWIE star Joey, 32, at the Pride of Britain Awards on Monday 24 October.

The awards were attended by several celebrities as they gathered to celebrate the nation’s every day heroes.

Maura had been seen earlier that evening arriving at the event looking glamorous in a canary yellow gown, while Joey looked dapper in a black suit and red tie.

The reality show pair were later spotted getting close as they enjoyed a smooch before leaving the event together in a cab.

Prior to their steamy kiss on Monday, Joey told OK! he was "more single than ever".

Along with this, he said: "But at the same time, I've been there and done that with having girlfriends and minor flings now.

"If I'm going to have a proper serious girlfriend in the spotlight now, and she's going to be welcomed into my family and my life, she has to be 'it'. She's got to be The One."

Joey has a string of famous ex-girlfriends, after previously dating Sam Faiers, Rita Ora and Stephanie Pratt, among more famous names.

Maura had a well-publicised relationship with Strictly Come Dancing professional Giovanni Pernice, before the pair split last October.

She's since been rumoured to have dated Milton Keynes Dons footballer Connor Wickham and Roman Kemp, though she has not gone public with any suitors, up until now.
