Molly-Mae Hague has congratulated her friend Maura Higgins after the Love Island star landing a gig hosting Ireland’s version of hit make-up reality show Glow Up.

Sharing the news on her Instagram page, Maura, 30, who recently sparked romance rumours with Strictly professional Giovanni Pernice after a Cornish hotel stay, wrote: “say hello to THE PRESENTER of Glow Up Ireland coming soon to @rte2 #GloUpIrl.”

Molly, 22, reposted the announcement on her own Instagram Stories and wrote alongside: “Oh Miss Higgins. Proud of you my darling,” with a white love heart emoji.

She also commented on the post: “SO PROUD OF YOU MY DARLING.”

Other stars also rushed to the comment section to congratulate the former Love Islander. Lucie Donlan wrote: “THATS MY GIRL SMASHING IT! So proud.”

Shaughna Phillips said: “This is everything!!!!!! Congratulations my girl you deserve it ALLLLL.”

Olivia Bowen added: “AMAZING! Congratulations you should be so proud! Can’t wait to watch,” while former TOWIE star Lauren Pope said: “Amazing, I LOVE Glow Up.”

Megan McKenna wrote: “Congratulations Maura!!!” while Lauren Goodger commented with a series of clapping emojis.

In a statement, Maura said: "I'm so excited to be the presenter of the first-ever Glow Up Ireland.

"Having watched the last few series of the show in the UK, this is such an amazing opportunity and the fact that this is my first presenting job and it's in Ireland is so overwhelming.

"It's such a pinch-me moment to be doing this back in my home country.

"I actually can't believe it. Obviously, we're expecting a very high standard of Irish talent to come forward."

She added: "Applications are now open so get in touch to be in with a chance of landing one of the top ten coveted spots on the show."

The reality show, which sees budding make-up artists take on a series of weekly challenges and battle it out for the crown, premiered in the UK on BBC Three in 2019.

It was previously hosted by Stacey Dooley before Maya Jama took over for the third series.
