'Love Island' Fans Lose Their Heads As Chris And Maura Recreate 'Crazy, Stupid Love' In TikTok Challenge

'Love Island' Fans Lose Their Heads As Chris And Maura Recreate 'Crazy, Stupid Love' In TikTok Challenge

Love Island fans are losing their minds over Chris Taylor and Maura Higgins' recreation of Crazy, Stupid Love in a TikTok challenge - which ended on the pair appearing to lean in for a kiss.

The ex-Islander duo, who insist they're just best friends, treated fans to the iconic dance lift scene performed by Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone in the original movie - and we think it's fair to say they nailed it.

Watch the video here:

The clip shows Chris persuading an initially sleepy and unenthusiastic Maura into executing the perfect 'lift'.

In a move worthy of The Gosling, Chris even removes his top for the occasion.

Next, the pair appear to lean in for a smooch, just before the camera freezes.

The scene gives a nod to hit rom-com Crazy, Stupid Love, which in turn took inspiration from Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Gray's iconic life in Dirty Dancing.

Chris captioned the video: "Kiss your best friend challenge @maurahiggins.
