God love her.

Maura Higgins is living everyone’s worst nightmare after her latest injury, managing to land herself in A&E following a very sore sounding incident.

The former Love Island star took to Instagram to tell her followers of her horrifying incident, revealing that she’s had an unfortunate kitchen mishap to deal with.

Sharing a snap of herself in the A&E waiting room to her Instagram stories, Maura wrote: “Ended up in A&E after slicing my finger to the bone… Happy F***ing Monday!!”

While it only shows her glamorous Louis Vuitton slippers and a pair of tracksuit bottoms, we’re delighted she didn’t choose to post a picture of her injury on there too.

Despite her stroke of bad luck in the kitchen, things seem to be looking up for the Longford native, with an array of new projects heading her way.

Jetting off to the Maldives with friends to celebrate her birthday, moved into a new home and managed to snap up a modelling contract with Elite Model Management as well as its sister agency EWG Management in New York and Los Angeles.

Taking to Instagram to announce the news, Maura shared a snap of herself standing outside Elite’s London office wearing an Off White bodysuit and black blazer.

Flashing a peace sign to the camera, she wrote “Here’s to new beginnings.”

Elite Models is one of the world’s best known modelling agencies, representing numerous superstars such as Kendall Jenner, Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer, Naomi Campbell and Linda Evangelista.

The agency’s models feature in campaigns for massive fashion houses like Chanel, Dior and Yves Saint Laurent.

According to MailOnline, Maura had been trying to distance herself from reality TV after her stint on Love Island in 2019 and then her time on Dancing On Ice that same year.

After successful brand partnerships with the likes of Anne Summers, insiders revealed that Maura wanted to keep modelling but take her career in a different direction.
