Maya Jama stole the show when Love Island launched on Monday night.
After strutting into the villa in a gorgeous flowing green dress, Maya introduced the new contestants including Haris Namani, Kai Fagan and Shaq Muhammad before they coupled up with the girls such as Lana Jenkins and Olivia Hawkins.
Fans may have been tuning in to get to know this year’s line-up, but it was Maya who they couldn’t stop talking about; the 28-year-old seemingly stole the spotlight with her epic entrance and effortless hosting.
“Might as well just show an hour of Maya every night tbh,” one person commented on Twitter, as another said she should even win the series’ prize: “Give her the 50k please.”
“THE choice for new presenter. Natural, effortless and clearly loving the job. Keep her out in SA so she can be on screen throughout,” tweeted a third.
“Best decision you’ve ever made,” said someone else, as another dubbed the show is “officially Maya Jama Island.”
Monday’s launch show saw the boys enter the villa first, stepping forward for each girl who arrived after.

The series returns to South Africa after three years from when the winter version of the show debuted.
Love Island will now be on twice a year, kicking off with the winter edition and returning in the summer for its usual series.
Maya took over hosting the job after Laura Whitmore stepped down after series eight, saying she found elements of the show ‘very difficult’ including its format and flying back and forth to South Africa.
