Maura Higgins has showed her loyalty to fellow Love Islander Lucie Donlan amid her resurfaced feud with Yewande Biala.
The 30 year old, who recently clapped back at trolls who accused her of editing her photos, sent blonde beauty Lucie a bouquet of gorgeous flowers alongside a small teddy bear and a rose-themed card.
Sharing a clip of the display, the surfer chick wrote: “Love you @maurahiggins,” followed by a red heart emoji. She added: “Miss you so much, just want to give you the biggest cuddle!” with a sunflower emoji.

Lucie, 22, claimed Yewande had “bullied” her e in a series of old Instagram comments, which were unearthed on Reddit. In a comment on one of her Instagram photos, Lucie was asked by a fan: “How do you feel about Yewande saying you’re a horrible person?”
To which Lucie, who recently said she was insecure and unhappy in her teens, said: “She’s always bullied me. I’m not bothered about her opinion… makes her look bad. Not sure where she said that though!”
The fan then responded to Lucie’s comment with: “living in their head rent free,” [sic] followed by a winking emoji before adding: “keep winning”. Lucie replied with two heart emojis to show her appreciation to the fan.
Since then, the TV personality has spoken out about the old comments, begging fans to simply “move on” as she revealed she’s been sent death threats over the ordeal.
“These are really old comments dug up purely to incite a row between two females,” she told MailOnline.
Lucie, who recently showed off her toned body in a new sustainable Ann Summer campaign, continued: “In this day and age and with everything going on in the world, we should all be sticking together not attacking each other.
“I’ve been sent death threats which are incredibly scary as you can imagine.
“I said on the show I had trouble pronouncing Yewande’s name, it’s just what I’m like. And I asked if I could use a shortened abbreviated version of her name instead as a term of endearment – there’s nothing sinister to it.
“I regret how just a few old comments sent 18 months ago has snowballed like this and got out of hand, and drummed up some needless negativity.
“Can we all just move on from this please?”
Yewande, 25, was quick to respond to the initial resurfacing of Lucie’s claims with fury as she hit back on Twitter.
The stunning star wrote: “You refused to call me by my name because it was too “hard to pronounce” now you wanna say I bullied you !! Bullied,” [sic] followed by an angry face emoji.
