Maura has signed to London fashion powerhouse Elite Model Management and their sister agency EWG Management in New York and LA.
Since leaving the Love Island villa, Maura has had brand deals with major brands such as Ann Summers where she is the face of the brand.
The news comes swiftly after tabloids caught wind that Maura had sacked her reality TV agents.
Maura revealed: “I’m so excited about this new chapter in my life, working in TV alongside modelling has always been one of my biggest passions and I can’t wait to share some of the projects I’m going to be working on”
An Elite spokesman added: “We’re thrilled to sign Maura. Elite prides itself on working with a variety of different talents who are at the forefront of their careers.”
Before Love Island, Maura worked as a pit girl for car races so is definitely comfortable in front of the camera.
The move comes after sources claimed to MailOnline the former islander now wants to keep her personal life out of the spotlight after having relationships, including break-ups from Giovanni Pernice, Chris Taylor and Curtis Pritchard, playing out in the public.
They said: “They have supported her from the beginning but now she’s ready to start a new chapter in her career and wants to focus on modelling.
“She’s desperate to move away from reality TV – she wants a new challenge and has always thrived off her fashion and beauty campaigns.”
Maura is following in the footsteps of Love Island best friend Molly Mae Hague, after she has also worked to distance herself from reality TV focussing on her passion for fashion in becoming creative director for global brand Pretty Little Thing.
