Here’s what we know about Maya Jama, including her age, net worth, dating history and if she's still with former flame Stormzy.
The 28-year-old has worked as DJ, radio host and presenter on primetime TV and has even starred as one of the guest judges on the second season of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK, amongst other huge shows.
But how old is she, what's her net worth and dating history?
Here’s what we know about Maya…
Maya Jama unveiled as new host of Love Island
Maya was born on August 14, 1994, making her 28 years old.
She kicked off her career in broadcasting and presenting at the age of just 16, when she launched her own YouTube channel. At 18 she was hired as a host for The Jump Off.
Maya is a DJ, TV presenter and owns her very own line of face masks.
The Bristol-born star made her acting debut on Netflix’s The Duchess and has hosted a number of shows including The Circle, Don’t Hate The Playaz, and also presented series three and four of Glow Up: Britain’s Next Make-Up Star.
She's now made her debut as the new Love Island host for the 2023 winter series, taking over hosting duties from Laura Whitmore.
According to a number of reports, Maya is worth a whopping £1.5million thanks to her presenter jobs, endorsements and own line of skincare range; MIJ Masks.
Her net worth is sure to soar now thanks o her new presenting role on Love Island, which typically has a six-figure sum attached to it per series.
Maya is 5ft 8 - which is around 173cm.
Since she split from Stormzy back in August 2019, Maya has kept her love life lowkey.
Maya got engaged to NBA player Ben Simmons in 2021 after less than a year of dating, but in summer 2022 it was reported they'd split due to their hectic work schedules and realising 'as much as they love each other, their nonstop careers and endless travel made it incredibly impossible to make it work.'
Rumours surfaced that she was romantically linked to Drake back in July 2020, after he name-dropped the star in his song, ‘Only You Freestyle’, but Maya didn’t address the speculation.
However, she denied the rumours after she confirmed earlier in January 2023 that she is 'really single' at the moment.
