Curtis Pritchard and Emily Barker

Not only does Curtis have a famous older brother, but he is also has a famous ex-girlfriend, Emily Barker.

The pair are both pro-dancers on Dancing with the Stars Ireland and were together for over two years before splitting in late 2018.

Speaking about their long term relationship in his pre-Love Island interview Curtis said:

My ex-girlfriend was my dance partner. We danced with each other from when we were twelve until we were fourteen, we were the champions.You’re always in a close proximity so it would be weird not to get feelings even if it’s just to be a best friend or if it’s to fall in love.”
