The brand new series of Love Island kicked off on Monday evening and new host Maya Jama certainly made an impression.

The beauty, who has previously dated hitmaker rapper Stormzy, brought up her past as she addressed the new islands.

She quipped: ‘Don’t forget, finding your perfect match is never that simple – trust me, I know.’

Maya and Stormzy dated for four years from 2015 to 2019 and while it’s been rumoured they had rekindled their romance, she insisted she’s ‘really, really single’.

It comes after Stormzy previously admitted that he blames himself for his split from the brunette beauty.

Despite this, the chart-topping rap star believes that the experience actually helped him to ‘grow up’.

In an episode of the BBC’s Louis Theroux Interviews, the Vossi Bop hitmaker said: ‘My break-up, that was probably the biggest catalyst for growth as a man.

‘It was like, OK, you made a mistake and you lose someone you loved, someone you cared for, someone who is special to you.

‘That’s probably the biggest loss a man can have, isn’t it? Away from someone passing away, that’s the biggest loss you can have.’

During Love Island, Maya, who made her villa bow after replacing Laura Whitmore, introduced the ten new contestants to each other, and they were asked to couple up.

Ellie Spence, 25, and 23-year-old sportsman Tom Clare went head-to-head to earn a place in the villa. But it was the semi-pro footballer who was ultimately handed the opportunity.

Tom will now have 24 hours to get to know the girls, before he has to choose one of them.

During the sexy slow-mo clip, viewers went wild as she looked incredible in the dress which was embellished with cut out details around her chest and stomach.

She left little to the imagination as the dress reached her thigh – where it featured a slit going down her leg.

Maya also added inches to her incredible frame in a pair of strappy heels.
