Sure, Maura Higgins may count Lena Dunham and Amy Schumer as fans, and Lucie Donlan has actual Spider-Man Tom Holland liking her posts.
But Curtis Pritchard is making just as many starry connections in the UK now that he’s left the Love Island villa.
The ballroom dancer is moving up in the world, getting a shout-out from Cheryl after joining The Greatest Dancer team.
Cheryl, 36, tagged the 23-year-old in her latest Instagram post, after he accidentally photobombed her fierce posing session backstage.
The Let You singer was looking all kinds of fire in a pair of pale pink latex leggings teamed with a khaki jacket and furry heels that Elle Woods would kill for.
Cheryl leaned up against a wall in between The Greatest Dancer filming in Birmingham for a sultry shot – however, the show’s newest addition Curtis could be seen in a room at the end of the corridor, getting his hair and make-up done.
Chezza tagged the Love Island star in the picture on Instagram and captioned it: ‘Oh hi Curtis 🙋🏻♀ don’t mind me @greatestdancer.’
And fans of both Cheryl and Love Island were into the mash-up, with one person commenting: ‘Curtis has made it in life. Being tagged in one of your posts already.’
Curtis came fourth in the Love Island final with Maura Higgins, but as well as bagging appearances on every morning chat show going, he has already nabbed two high-profile jobs.
The star will appear alongside his brother, Strictly Come Dancing’s AJ Pritchard, on RuPaul’s Drag Race UK, and he has joined The Greatest Dancer team as a receptionist, who will greet hopefuls ahead of their auditions.
And he’s been rubbing shoulders with the show’s hosts Jordan Banjo and Alesha Dixon, and judges Cheryl, Oti Mabuse, Matthew Morrison and Todrick Hall while the show films in Birmingham.
As Anton showed with Molly-Mae, it’s perfectly fine to unfollow your friends
Love Island’s Maura Higgins and Curtis Pritchard finally reunite and it’s pretty cute
But he has made time to reunite with Maura, having shared adorable snaps with the 28-year-old after she flew to the UK from Ireland.
Everything’s coming up Milhouse – er, Curtis.
