MAYA Jama’s celebrity friends have warned contestants after she took over hosting the show – heads will be turning.
Loose Woman Judi Love has said the contestants are at risk of falling for the presenter, who is single after high-profile relationships with Ben Simmons and Stormzy – and it could spell trouble at the villa.
Judi, 42, said: “I’m just looking forward to the drama of the contestants falling in love with Maya.”
The comedian added: “I’ve never seen the end of the show where the winners are asked if you guys are staying together?
And they say, “Actually … I want to meet the presenter,” Judi told the breakfast show Capital Extra.
It came as viewers claimed one person “stole the show” on last night’s debut as ten sexy singles were linked.
Five boys and five girls were together on the Maya Jama-hosted Love Island launch show – which saw Kai Fagan dump Olivia Hawkins after she stole him from Anna-May Robey.
However, despite all the new glamorous contestants, fans claimed that host Maya Jama should get all the attention.
One fan claimed on Twitter, “Can’t lie… Maya Jama just stole the show from everyone.”
A second added: “Maya Jama really got on the show on the first night and stole the entire show.”
Although her arrival was threatened by a violent storm, she risked her grand entrance.
But as she entered the mansion, she issued a stern warning – admitting that finding a partner is “never that easy”.
Maya could have been referring to her roller coaster relationship with rapper Stormzy, with whom she recently rekindled her relationship.
The Sun revealed Maya would replace Laura Whitmore as presenter last year.
It came after Celebrity Juice team captain Laura, 37, opened up about how she left the role of the high-profile presenter after three series.
