What is Curtis doing now?

In January 2020, Curtis replaced Amelia Wilson as the new receptionist on series two of BBC’s The Greatest Dancer, after quitting Ireland’s Dancing with the Stars.

“The BBC and Simon were keen to get involved in the frenzy that is Love Island and thought Curtis went down well with viewers,” a source told The Sun back in July 2019.
