Ben Simmons’ Ex-Fiancee Maya Jama on Being Confirmed As The New Love Island Host

Maya Jama has replaced Laura Whitmore as the New Love Island host and she’s overly excited and can’t wait to start her hosting duties.

According to the Daily Mail, she is hosting the first of two series which will be filmed in South Africa, in early 2023.

Maya said in a statement: ‘I’ve always been such a massive Love Island fan and I’m so excited to be hosting one of the nation’s favourite shows! I can’t wait to get into the Villa to meet all of the Islanders.’ Both Maya and Love Island shared a video of herself scrolling through stories about her being the rumoured presenter on various media outlets. The Love Island account shared: ‘Okay, the rumours are true Say hey to your brand-new #LoveIsland host @mayajama!’

Maya wrote in the comments section: SO BLOODY EXCITED. GET ME ON THAT ISLAND. ❤️’

Fans seemed to think she was the perfect choice to replace Laura. They took to Twitter straight away and wrote: ‘Maya Jama will be a great love island host.’ ‘Maya Jama hosting love Island is excellent news!’

‘Maya Jama hosting Love Island and she’s gonna be hotter than any of the girls on the actual show.’ ‘I love how the whole of Twitter asked for Maya Jama to be the new host of Love Island and ITV delivered.’

‘Maya Jama being the new host of Love Island! Our prayers have been answered!’ Director of Reality Programming & Acquisitions, Paul Mortimer said: ‘Finding a new host to follow the wonderful Laura Whitmore was never going to be easy.

‘In Maya Jama though, we have another high profile fan of the show who’ll be a great addition to the Love Island family. ‘Cool, charming and charismatic, I speak for us all when I say Maya will also bring a unique presenting style to the show, as did Laura and, of course, the very much missed Caroline Flack. We’re very pleased to have her on board.’ Laura announced in August this year that she was quitting the show and would not be returning to host the next series of the ITV2 dating show.

The Irish presenter, 37, joined back in 2020 and has hosted the hugely popular reality programme and its spin-off Aftersun for three series.

Ben Simmons blew it.
