Love Island star Maura Higgins has celebrated her “new beginnings” after signing up with top modelling agency Elite Model Management.
The agency also has the likes of Kendall Jenner, Abbey Clancy, and Lucy Watson on the A-list agency books, meaning we could soon be seeing the reality star on the runway.
Maura teased the news on Instagram alongside a photograph of herself at the Elite Models chic-looking offices.
In the picture, the 30 year old struck a pose as she flashed a peace sign while wearing leather trousers, a white top coupled with a black blazer, and heeled combat boots.
She captioned the post: “Here’s to new beginnings”.
Maura has since added Elite Models to her Instagram bio, too.
OK! have contacted Maura’s representatives for comment.
Maura has been inundated with congratulations from her fellow celebs.
Best pal and fellow former Love Islander Molly-Mae Hague wrote: “Proud of you”, while Amber Gill posted two clapping hands emojis.
Lucie Donlan echoed similar sentiments stating how proud she was of Maura, as Shaugna Phillips branded her a “boss”.
Maura’s exciting news comes after the Irish beauty split with Strictly Come Dancing’s Giovanni Pernice.

Maura is yet to address the pair going their separate ways, but Giovanni spoke about it and insisted that there was ‘no wrongdoing’ from either parties.
He wrote on Instagram in October: “Hey guys – I hope everyone had a great Monday. Going into another wonderful training week – thank you so much for your amazing messages & your support this weekend.
“I get to live my dream every single day because of you – so thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I wanted to say a couple of things…”
“Firstly, great relationships with great people can come to a natural end,” Giovanni then explained. “This has been the case for me recently.
“There was absolutely no wrong-doing and this should be the end of any speculation.”
While Maura and Giovanni have already called it quits, Maura’s ex-boyfriend Curtis Pritchard admitted he didn’t even know the two were dating.
He told OK!: “I didn’t even know they were in a relationship – I didn’t really know they were or weren’t really. I don’t take too much notice on it.”
Addressing his own relationship status, Curtis added: “I am single and there’s nothing out there at the moment. I’m focusing on myself at the moment.”
