Curtis Pritchard and Maura Higgins, who met on Love Island, split after seven months together in March 2020.
Since then Curtis, who is starring on Celebs Go Dating, which started on E4 this week, has been linked to a string of women.
Soon after his split Curtis was seen cosying up with gorgeous dancer Bethany Hall, who he performed with on his brother AJ's live tour, but he denied reports that he was dating her.
His rep told The Mirror: "Curtis isn't looking for a relationship right now – he's focusing on his career and he's spending time with his family."
He also dated Amber Pierson who he performed alongside with in AJ Live in August last year.
The pair's romance "fizzled out" after four weeks and it would have been "unfair" for him to have continued in the relationship, MailOnline reported.
Meanwhile, it is believed that Curtis and Maura split because of their busy schedules.
Previously talking about their relationship on Steph’s Packed Lunch, last month Curtis said: “We did have lots of good times — one of the highlights was when I asked her to be my girlfriend at Port Lympne Safari Park in Kent. But we were spending a lot of time apart. I was on The Greatest Dancer and she was training for Dancing On Ice from December.
“I went to her first three shows, but after that she asked me not to come. She said she had terrible nerves and it was easier without me there. I just accepted that.

"I wasn’t concerned about there being anything romantic between her and Alex [Demetriou – her dance partner on the show].
“But as the weeks went on our relationship deteriorated, and then at the beginning of March we agreed to go our separate ways.
"It hurt. I wasn’t ready for everyone to know we had split up — I wanted some time. It was a shock to see that she had announced it on social media hours later."
Before Maura, Curtis only had one serious relationship – his former dance partner Emily Barker.
Emily Barker, 22, is a professional dancer and choreographer from Nottingham.
Curtis, who appeared on Dancing with the Stars Ireland, dated his co-star Emily for two-and-a-half years.
They had been dancing partners since the age of 12.
Speaking about Emily on Love Island, he said: “My ex-girlfriend was my dance partner. We danced with each other from when we were 12 until we were 14, we were the champions.
“When we got older, we both ended up doing Dancing with the Stars in Ireland and got into a relationship.
“You spend a lot of time with each other when you’re dancing together.
“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.”
Although he is still single, in a clip for Celebs Go Dating he said he hopes to "push boundaries" by getting to know more women on the E4 dating show.
Curtis started spending time with fellow dancer shortly after his split from Maura in March 2020.
A source at the time told The Sun that the blonde beauty had been "just the pick-me-up he needed".
However any romance was denied by his rep, who said: "Curtis isn't looking for a relationship right now – he's focusing on his career and he's spending time with his family."
