Love Island BFF’s Tommy Fury and Curtis Pritchard have teamed up for a new ITV show entitled The Boxer and The Ballroom Dancer.
The TV show favourites were rumoured to be pairing up for a reality show after their blossoming bromance in the villa saw them win over viewers.
A filming notice for the show has now been revealed, with the programme set to appear on ITV2.
A fan account name Love Island Guru shared a picture of the notice, which read: “ITV Studios Limited are here today filming a television programme called ‘The Boxer and The Ballroom Dancer’ (working title) for ITV2 and by entering here you may be filmed/recorded and included in the programme.”
According to reports, the show is scheduled to appear on screens before Christmas.
It’s believed the show will see the duo swap careers, with the brother of Tyson Fury taking to the dance floor, while Curtis tries his hand at boxing.
A source told The Sun: “ITV wanted to explore a series for them, but didn’t just want a silly contrived fly-on-wall bromance type of show. Instead, they’ve come up with this career swap.”
The new show comes after even more good news for professional dancer Curtis, after the officially asked Maura Higgins to be his girlfriend.

“He asked and I said yes obviously,” Irish Maura tells us, revealing that she and professional dancer Curtis are finally an 'official' couple.
“He took me away for a weekend break, and he asked me out over dinner in London the next day,” said the 28-year-old, who has landed a rumoured six figures deal with lingerie company Ann Summers, as well as a presenting stint on This Morning since leaving the villa in July.
Romantic Curtis, 23, went on to reveal why it took so long for him to pop the question.
“I want something that's going to last forever. There's no point in rushing thing. We've only known each other a short amount of time,” he said.
Addressing critics of their relationship, the pair, who could barely keep their hands off one another during our photoshoot say, “People say we're opposites. But opposites attract!”
And dispelling any doubt about Curtis' sexuality Maura also said that her new boyfriend was still giving her “f***y flutters!”

Maura, who has recently been confirmed as one of the contestants on this year's Dancing on Ice, revealed that training was "tougher" than she anticipated.
“I keep falling over because I have no balance,” she added. Dancing pro Curtis meanwhile poked fun at his other half, giggling: “Let's just say she's not a professional ice skater!”
And dispelling rumours that he'd been seen cosying up to former Girls Aloud singer Cheryl while backstage at BBC dancing reality show The Greatest Dancer, Curtis said: “I spoke to Cheryl for about five minutes. There's been no messages or anything.”
While Maura chipped in: “I don't care about the stories, they don't bother me. I'm not threatened by Cheryl.”
