The ITV2 show’s new presenter Maya Jama, who has replaced Laura Whitmore, stars in the 30-second teaser, riding a velvet-adorned bronco.

Are you ready? The first full-length trailer for Love Island’s winter 2023 series has been unveiled, starring new host Maya Jama
The new hostess looks incredible in a plunging jumpsuit embellished with sparkling stars and moons as she expertly takes on the bull.
With record-breaking viewership, the final Love Island series, which aired in summer 2022, became the most watched series of all time on the ITV Hub with over 269 million streams.
The first winter series aired in January 2020 – just before the COVID-19 pandemic – and was won by Paige Turley and Finn Tapp.
Plans for a second winter series have been shelved in 2021 due to concerns about the pandemic.

Paul Mortimer, Director of Reality Commissioning and Controller, ITV2, said: “Love Island has once again proved to be the nation’s favorite topic of conversation all summer long and we are continually amazed by the show’s enduring impact and talkativeness with our younger audiences .
“So instead of just serving up a Summer of Love, we thought we’d make 2023 the Year of Love with two full series of the show.”
This Winter Love Island series will also see a new host after Laura Whitmore stepped down from the show, with Maya confirmed as her replacement.
Maya said in a statement: “I’ve always been such a huge Love Island fan and I’m so excited to host one of the nation’s most popular shows! I can’t wait to get to the villa and meet all the islanders.”
The stunning Winter Love Island villa was unveiled back in November.
Sources told MailOnline at the time that the South African mansion was the “best villa” yet.
It was reported at the time that show bosses made the safety of the islanders their top priority after intruders wormed their way into previous mansions.
The oversized luxury eco-retreat offers stunning mountain views and is nestled in a ‘conserved area’ in the heart of the Franschhoek Wine Valley on South Africa’s ‘Millionaire Row’.
The largest of any series to date, the villa features a huge pool, is surrounded by palm trees and typically costs around £430 per night per room.
It’s also eco-friendly as the property is 100 percent off the grid, allowing it to generate its own electricity, water and numerous food sources.
It was revealed last month by MailOnline that Casa Amor is on the same site as the main villa.
The start date of the series will reportedly be Monday, January 16th.
Congratulations: While Winter Love Island was shelved amid the pandemic, the summer series aired this year to a whopping 3.4million viewers to see Ekin-Su and Davide win
