Love Island’s Curtis Pritchard says he can’t face dating again after split from Maura Higgins following cheating claims | #tinder | #pof | romancescams | #scams
CURTIS PRITCHARD has revealed he is not looking for another relationship after his split from Maura Higgins.
The pair dated for eight months after meeting on last summer’s Love Island, but split in March after a series of blazing rows and public bust-ups. There were also accusations of cheating.
Speaking about the break-up previously, Curtis said: “It hurt. I wasn’t ready for everyone to know we had split up — I wanted some time.
“It was a shock to see that she had announced it on social media hours later.”
Curtis is now content to remain single for the time being — and insists you will not find him on a dating app any time soon.
He added: “I’m very old-fashioned. I don’t actually like talking to people over a mobile phone or laptop. I’m a very sociable person. I like to be with somebody and talk to them.”
When asked if he had signed up for dating apps such as Tinder, Curtis said: “No.” His older brother, who has been with girlfriend Abbie Quinnen, a fellow dancer, for two years, added: “He’s too lazy for that, honestly.”
The Pritchard brothers have revealed their “end goal” is to become a presenting duo to rival Ant and Dec.
And they are keeping their eyes firmly on that prize — with no distractions.
For dance pro AJ, quitting Strictly just weeks before the pandemic hit put a break on his ambitious career plans.
But dancer AJ Pritchard has no regrets — and no plans to ever go back
Speaking exclusively to The Sun, the 25-year-old, who made it to the latter stages of the BBC1 series last year with YouTube star Saffron Barker said: “I made a decision and I’m very happy with that decision.
“I felt like coming out on what was a complete high.
“That last year with Saffron was a fantastic year, and if you don’t move forward and keep striving for what is your end goal, you won’t be able to make that jump.
“To wait another year just didn’t feel right for me. I won’t ever go back.”
AJ was the second big Strictly name to announce their departure this year, after Kevin Clifton quit the show in March.
In his four years there, AJ’s highest finish was fourth with Team GB gymnast Claudia Fragapane in 2016.
However, his most memorable series came the following year with singer Mollie King from The Saturdays, as the pair were rumoured to be getting close away from the dance floor.
TV chiefs are still trying to replace AJ and Kevin for the upcoming series, which is set to go ahead despite the complications from Covid-19.
AJ is backing plans for the show to return, but admits there will obviously be draw-backs.
He says: “There are things you can do to still work with social distancing, whether that be dances like the Charleston or jive.
“You can create routines where you don’t have to be close together. I think the professional group numbers are the one thing that could fall short this year. Usually the professionals learn them as a group.”
And he joked: “You could replay all the numbers from the past few years — and then I’ll be back on the TV.”
‘WE WANT TO BE LIKE ANT & DEC’
In recent months, AJ and Curtis have got a taste of their dream jobs as a presenting duo with an appearance on the BBC’s Big Night In charity appeal for those affected by coronavirus.
But their ultimate aim is to bag a prime-time Saturday night variety show, such as Britain’s Got Talent, which AJ appeared on as a contestant in 2013 with dance partner Chloe Hewitt.
AJ said: “Our aim is to get roles on big shiny floor TV shows and to become a household name as presenters.
“We want to definitely get our own shows commissioned and be like Ant and Dec.
“My first TV appearance was on Britain’s Got Talent. Doing some presenting on a variety show like that would be an absolute dream for me.”
The boys were tight-lipped on whether they had been in any meetings to discuss their own series yet, but did confirm nothing had been commissioned.
Curtis added: “We would absolutely love to be presenters.
“BGT is a prestigious and incredible show so hosting something like that would be a bit of a dream come true.”
‘I NEVER WANTED TO BE LABELLED DYSLEXIC’
But with both boys suffering from dyslexia, reading autocues on live shows can be extremely difficult.
Instead, they have to learn their lines ahead of time.
AJ said: “Reading the full text and learning lines can be difficult with dyslexia.
“We do work that bit harder, but I think that TV producers see that and adapt to work with us.”
The boys, who this month became ambassadors for the British Dyslexia Association, credit their dyslexia with making them creative people and for steering them towards dancing.
But they were not always pleased with being a bit different.Curtis said: “I never wanted to be labelled dyslexic for a couple of reasons.
“I was scared of it and I thought it was a bad thing — that I’ve got a problem or something, when in reality I couldn’t have been more wrong because it moulded me into the person I am today.
“And really it’s actually made me more creative and expressive and more knowledgeable.” With their creativity and upbeat attitude, all the brothers need now is for the TV industry to come back to full strength after lockdown.

“But the entertainment side will bounce back because people need to be entertained and want to have fun.”

- Threat intelligence firm Intsights says criminals are turning to cryptocurrencies in greater numbers in Latin America.
- Mixing services, P2P and unregulated crypto exchanges are the tools of choice to covertly wash and launder illicit funds.
Organized crime and drug cartels in Latin America are increasingly turning to cryptocurrencies to launder money and orchestrate scams, according to the latest collaborative report by threat intelligence firm Intsights and blockchain forensics firm CipherTrace.
The report, “The Darkside of Latin America,” demonstrates how threat finance in Latin America has evolved with the rise of cryptocurrencies and peer-to-peer and unregulated exchanges. Researchers for Intsights say they arrived at their findings from access to “closed-access databases” and “hundreds of underground sources (deep web and dark web),” among other tactics.
The report claims that the region’s countries “top the list of the world’s worst money laundering nations,” and organized crime and cybercriminals are turning to cryptocurrencies to move money and to hire hackers. The report also highlights the fact that extreme political corruption in the region helps criminals operate without much resistance.
One way criminals are specifically using cryptocurrency is through “mixing services” to obfuscate “potentially identifiable or ‘tainted’ cryptocurrency funds with others,” according to Intsights. Once “washed” through mixing services, criminals continue to trade their crypto on other exchanges to profit.
Further, criminals are laundering money through the many unregulated exchanges through Latin America, which lack the know-your-customer (KYC) and anti-money laundering (AML) policies that are commonplace in more developed countries. Criminals use these exchanges to trade Bitcoin for altcoins to further obfuscate and profit from their illicit funds. According to the researchers, they estimate that 97% percent of washed cryptocurrency ends up in places like Latin America that have “extremely lax KYC/AML regulations.”
To compound this, criminals also turn to peer-to-peer exchanges (P2P), which remain the preferred way for criminals to exchange crypto to fiat money. The report cites P2P exchanges such as LocalBitcoins, which has relatively high trading volume in Latin America, as favorites for criminals to launder money because they ”typically lack AML programs and perform little or no KYC due diligence.”
In recent months, P2P exchanges like Paxful and Local Bitcoins have stepped up their regulations to combat this reputation.
The report cites the case of the now notorious Panamanian payment processing firm Crypto Capital as a prominent example of how criminals use crypto. The alleged operators of the “shadow bank” are charged with aiding drug cartels with money laundering operations between Latin America and Europe, among other misdeeds.
It’s a problem that’s unlikely to be resolved any time soon, according to the researchers, given Latin America’s lack of established anti-money laundering laws and poor enforcement of the laws that are in place.
Nevertheless, the report recommends firms that want to combat cybercrime in the region to “collect, monitor, and analyze cyber crime intelligence,” learn and “follow best security practices.”

Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson has revealed that his hopes of signing Kyle Walker-Peters have reached an impasse.
The Tottenham Hotspur right-back has failed to feature on a regular basis for the first team this season despite playing the first three Premier League matches of the campaign under Mauricio Pochettino before suffering a hamstring problem.
Hodgson claimed last week that Palace were working hard on trying to bring the 22-year-old to Selhurst Park and was optimistic that an agreement would be reached (Football London).
Despite the 72-year-old’s previous hopes the deal has now stalled and left Hodgson suggesting that Spurs have not decided whether they will allow Walker-Peters to leave North London this month.
Following the summer departure of Kieran Trippier to Atletico Madrid, Spurs only have Serge Aurier and Walker-Peters within their ranks as senior players who primarily operate on the right side of defence.
Palace are said to be keen to strengthen at right-back following the summer sale of Aaron Wan-Bissaka to Manchester United.
“[There is] no update,” Hodgson told the Evening Standard.
“There was initial contact I think between the clubs and the suggestion was made and one I was behind.
“It would have been a good move for us I think, but as far as I know nothing is happening and I’m not sure what Tottenham’s intention with Kyle Walker-Peters is.”

The Greek chapter of the Anonymous hacker collective has claimed to have infiltrated state broadcaster ERT, but the channel has denied there was any attack at all.
The bizarre incident allegedly occurred on Monday night when, according to Anonymous Greece, ERT’s databases were hacked in response to the state broadcaster’s decision not to cover Sunday’s Thessaloniki ‘Macedonia’ rally live.
Sixteen ERT databases containing 60 gigabytes’ worth of data were attacked, the group claimed. They even posted a screengrab of the ERT webpage during the alleged hack on their own Facebook page.
The hacking collective said that by refusing to cover the rally against the use of Macedonia in FYROM’s name in the northern Greek city, ERT “cheated the people who supported it a few years ago”.
This was a reference to the crowds of Greek citizens who flocked the ERT building in Aghia Paraskevi in the summer of 2013, when the conservative government of the time decided to pull the plug on the public broadcaster.
A few hours after Monday’s alleged hack was reported, ERT’s IT head, Nikos Michalitsis, denied the incident, according to a report by LiFO free press; “We have seen no hack in our databases in the last few days,” he was quoted as saying.
According to Michalitsis, the only hacking incident reported by his technicians in the past month was 20 days ago, when a group took control of ERT’s New Media webpage. Even then, there was no database hack, he added.
Anonymous Greece have claimed various hacks in the past, including one of classified Bank of Greece documents in September 2017, plus home foreclosure e-auctions as well as Turkish state webpages.

A 72-year-old Plymouth man’s computer was hacked by someone who threatened to report him as a terrorist sympathizer unless he paid money, a police report said.
The victim told police he received several telephone calls Nov. 21 after his computer was hacked. He said the caller demanded $300 for three years of computer protection or $2,000 for lifetime coverage.
The caller became aggressive, the report said, threatening to contact the U.S. president and the CIA to accuse the victim of supporting a terrorist network.
The victim notified police and no money was lost.
A 51-year-old Plymouth man notified police after he was twice awakened by someone pounding on his door and leaving behind a smashed pumpkin on his driveway and a plant dumped on the windshield of his Ford Fusion, a report said.
The man said the knocking occurred about 2:30 a.m. Nov. 23 and then an hour later. He called police both times, but the prankster had fled when officers arrived.
The incident occurred in the 1000 block of Quail Circle. The windshield of the Ford Fusion sustained some damage when the plant was dumped on it.
Plymouth Township police arrested a 36-year-old Westland man after he crashed his 2013 Ford Econoline into a building at 14937 Northville Road, a report said.
Police cited the man for operating while impaired and his vehicle was impounded.
The crash happened just before midnight Nov. 21, near Northville Road and Five Mile, the report said. The driver was bleeding from the head and mouth and was taken to St. Mary Mercy Hospital for treatment, the report said.
The suspect told police another vehicle cut him off and caused him to crash into the building after he left a bar, the report said. Police got a search warrant to have the man’s blood drawn to test for blood-alcohol level.
A 43-year-old Canton woman called police after her purse was stolen by someone who smashed out her car window while she was parked at Applied Fitness Solutions on Ann Arbor Road in Plymouth, a report said.
She said the incident happened between 6:45 p.m. and 8 p.m. Nov. 9. She said she had tried to hide her purse under the back of the passenger seat, but apparently it was still visible.
She said she locked the doors, but the intruder broke out the rear passenger window. She told police the purse contained credit cards, $30 in cash and her driver’s license.
A 34-year-old man told Plymouth Township police $500 was stolen from his bedroom closet while he was out of town, a report said.
He told police he returned Nov. 12 to his home in the 2300 block of Hackberry to find that five $100 bills had been stolen from his closet. He said he locked the house before he left.
He told police the money had been given to him as a family gift.
