Curtis spoke candidly on the subject of his ex to love gurus Anna Williamson and  Paul Carrick Brunson, after sharing a kiss with Kesia earlier this week.

Explaining that he has a ‘block’ in his head, Curtis said: ‘I’ve never ever thought I wanted to say bad things about anybody but my former relationship wasn’t the healthiest shall we say.’ 

He said: ‘She wasn’t my usual type, dead hot, fiery character and behind closed doors I’m a fiery character – in dance you have to be – and in the bedroom and stuff I am like that a little bit you know.’

Curtis and Maura dated for nine months after meeting on the show but went their separate ways in March last year.
