Taking to Instagram, she wrote: ‘I didn’t want to speak out about this, but I feel I have to as I have been receiving a few abusive messages recently regarding what’s been in the papers.
‘To be very clear, Curtis and I have never been together. We are simply friends and dancer partners! There are 13 dancers going on tour, and I am one of them.
‘The ‘cheating’ allegations this week are out of the blue and complete lies.
‘I wanted no part in this but what I will say is Curtis is genuinely a lovely and talented guy, who doesn’t deserve any of this. Hope that’s set the record straight and we can move on. Amber x.’

Curtis and Maura found love towards the end of the 2019 ITV series and continued to date for eight months after their exit before their relationship came to end in 2020.
It was claimed at the time the couple rowed over her friendship with her Dancing On Ice partner Alexander Demetriou.
The Sun reported that Alex’s friendly relationship with Maura caused arguments with his Dancing On Ice skater wife Carlotta Edwards.
Carlotta and Alex have since announced the break down of their marriage, but Maura has always insisted she is just friends with the professional skater.
