Maya Jama wows with glam snaps as Love Island fans beg her to host show

Maya Jama is being positioned to replace Laura Whitmore as the new host of Love Island as she stunned fans with glam snaps of herself.

The 28-year-old is reportedly one of the front-runners to replace Laura, 37, on the hit ITV2 dating show, amid reports she could bring a "cooler edge" as the host.

She is expected to be up against This Morning star Vick Hope, 32, the TV and radio presenter, and former Strictly Come Dancing contestant.

It comes after Irish TV star Laura revealed her shock decision to quit her job after three years on Monday (August 22), blaming, in part, the format of the show for her career choice.

One fan said: "So Laura Whitmore is stepping down from #LoveIsland – can someone clear @MayaJama 's diary for the winter and summer please."

A TV source reportedly told The Sun of Maya and Vick: "They're viewed as two glamorous, fun figures who would also bring a slightly cooler edge to the format.

"Over the past three years they've both seen their careers go from strength to strength, and have the high profile to match that of the hit ITV show."

They added: "It's going to be a close call who ITV bosses will pick in the end."

Maya is the currently the bookies' favourite to present the show. She has previously fronted Walk the Line and Soccer Aid, and has hosted Glow Up: Britain's Next Make-Up Star.

Another contender for the Love Island role is believed to be reigning champion Ekin-Su Culculoglu, 28, who quickly became a firm fan favourite alongside partner Davide Sanclimenti on this year's series.

She has already reportedly signed on the dotted line for a £1million deal with fashion brand Oh Polly.

Laura said of her departure: "There are certain elements of the show I’ve found very difficult that cannot be changed some due to the format, including the flying back and forth to South Africa along with my new conflicting projects."
