Maura Higgins cosies up to rich New York toyboy in Mexico after Joey Essex fling | The Sun

MAURA Higgins was most recently romantically linked to Joey Essex – but it seems she has moved onto pastures new.

The brunette beauty, 32, shared a passionate snog with Joey at the Pride Of Britain Awards but things fizzled out as quickly as they had begun.

Maura has now set her sights elsewhere and has been spotted cosying up to a rich American toyboy while on holiday.

The former Love Island star was seen hanging out with 24-year-old Yisroel Solomon during a recent trip to Tulum in Mexico.

Yisroel is said to be a high-earning transfers manager who works in New York. He is originally from Los Angeles, where he graduated from high school in 2015.

During Maura's Mexican holiday, she was snapped cuddling up to him while enjoying a glass of red wine.

The pair were on the beach at the time and Maura even reposted a pic of Yisroel on her Instagram Stories.

Maura's rep has been approached by The Sun Online for comment.

In October last year, Maura was snapped snogging Joey at the Pride Of Britain Awards in London.

The Irish star wore a stunning canary yellow gown and was seen locking lips with Dancing On Ice's Joey inside the Grosvenor House Hotel.

They later left in the same taxi, smiling and chatting as the driver headed off into the night.

However, Joey is believed to have now fallen for his professional Dancing On Ice skating partner Vanessa Baeur.

The pair have grown close since being partnered together for the ITV contest in November but have remained coy about their relationship.

On Sunday night, DOI host Phillip Schofield quipped about their rumoured romance after Joey and Vanessa performed.

As they waited for their scores – which were the highest of the series so far – Joey told Phillip and Holly Willoughby that he's "fallen in love with ice skating".

Phillip cheekily responded: "With ice skating…"

Joey smiled, saying: "I've fallen in love with Paso."

But Phillip continued to quip, "Anything else?" to which he replied: "Umm, no just the ice."

Joey may be remaining tight-lipped about Vanessa, but he wasn't so shy when speaking about Maura.

Last month, in an interview with Heat magazine, the former Towie star was asked what had happened at the Pride Of Britain Awards.
