Look Island 2023 first look: Maya Jama seen hosting ITV2 hit for the first time as she thrills fans in new trailer | The Sun01/01/2023
LOVE Island fans got their first look at Maya Jama as host in a new trailer to air on ITV tonight.
The 28-year-old star is taking over from Laura Whitmore as presenter when the show returns later this month.
It's not known whether Maya will have a beefed-up role compared to Laura, but ITV described the star today as "our official love motivator".
The ninth series of Love Island takes place in South Africa for only the second time since the series began.
A special trailer will air on ITV tonight in the ad break for James Bond film No Time To Die.
Appropriately, it sees Maya in darkness before being illuminated, Bond girl style.
