Following former presenter Laura Whitmore, the 28-year-old has won a legion of new fans as the face of the dating series for its latest winter edition, with some even calling for her to win the show.
“Love island producers escorting me off the premises after i refuse to couple up with anyone other than maya jama #loveisland,” one person joked on Twitter humoured, while another added: “Just give maya jama the 50k now #LoveIsland.” Jama’s standout “Love Island” outfits have also been cause for celebration, with another tweeting: “Maya jama looks like an absolute GODDESS the boys are all shook 😭😭 respectfully i also screamed at the TV she looks phenomenal.”
