Maya Jama to host new Love Island spin-off featuring previous contestants from around the world

Maya Jama has announced that she’ll be hosting Love Island’s international spin-off, Love Island Games, this November.

The spin-off show will bring together former Islanders from the UK, US and Australian series for a second shot at love and to compete to be crowned the champion.

The all-star series will see the returning hopefuls “faced with both team and couples” challenges, all while navigating dating, eliminations, recoupling and dramatic new arrivals.

Jama, 29, will be jetting to Fiji to present the installment which is set to make its debut on Wednesday, November 1 on streaming service Peacock.

No details have been revealed about who will be entering the Fiji villa, but UK and US show narrator Ian Sterling will also join Jama on the spin-off.

Announcing the exciting news, she said in an Instagram video: “It’s going to be amazing!”

It was revealed last October that Jama would succeed Laura Whitmore as the show’s new host, who quit after three years at the helm.

Earlier this year, she made her debut fronting the winter series in the South Africa, not only wowing viewers with her charismatic presenting style, but equally her chic looks when she entered the villa.

Following her first episode, The Independent’s Elise Bell said of Jama that, “Quite simply, it feels like she’s always belonged here.”

She has previously hosted BBC makeup series Glow Up, ITV’s Walk the Line and the BBC’s Crouchy’s Year-Late Euros: Live

Elsewhere, Jama is proving to be hot property having become the new face of Rimmel London, following in the footsteps of “legend” Kate Moss and Adwoa Aboah.

She was also reportedly snapped up as the new face of Italian fashion house Dolce & Gabbana in a deal “worth thousands”.
