Fans are thrilled to see Maya Jama hosting the summer series once more as Love Island UK Season 11 gets underway on Monday. But who is this adored TV host?

This year, the popular ITV reality series Love Island is returning for a second season in the summer of 2024. A fresh cast will be joining the villa to try to find love and stand a chance to win £50,000.

After three seasons of presenting the dating program, Laura Whitmore gained recognition as its presenter. She assumed the post after the untimely death of Caroline Flack in 2020. However, Laura said in 2022 that she would be leaving her position as the highly acclaimed series’ host.

Soon, rumors began to circulate regarding Laura’s replacement. It was revealed a few months after the 2022 season concluded that television personality Maya Jama will be presenting the show’s winter version at the start of 2023.

Here’s all you need to know about Maya, who is back for her fourth season hosting Love Island.

Who is Love Island UK’s Maya Jama?

Bristol native Maya Jama, 29, is a well-known television and radio broadcaster with experience that spans several popular shows. Her credentials include hosting “The Circle,” “Glow Up: Britain’s Next Make-Up Star,” and her own BBC Radio 1 show, “Maya Jama.”

To the joy of fans eager to see the performer take on the significant job, Jama was revealed as the next Love Island host in October 2022. Additionally, the TV personality has been presenting the dating series since 2023 following her enormous success in the show’s winter season.

“Once you start doing TV, you meet a lot of producers, through different shows, and the heads will be aware of talent,” Jama said in a 2023 interview with The Times. Isn’t it strange to refer to oneself as talented? I work as a speaker. It’s not exactly ballading or tap dancing all over the place.

“So I think I’ve always been in their eye line, but I was super young when the presenter shifts were happening in the past.”

Jama went on to reveal that she didn’t have to audition for the role of Love Island host, and that she said yes “straight away.”
