Good for her: she toasted her success with sparkling wine
The former Radio 1 DJ quipped: “Don’t forget that finding your perfect partner is never that easy – trust me, I know.”
Maya and Stormzy dated for four years, from 2015 to 2019, and although they were rumored to have rekindled their romance, she insisted she was “really, really single.”
During Love Island, Maya, who bowed her mansion after replacing Laura Whitmore, introduced the ten new contestants to each other and they were asked to pair up.

Ellie Spence, 25, and athlete Tom Clare, 23, competed to earn a spot at the mansion. But it was the semi-pro who ultimately got the chance.
Tom now has 24 hours to get to know the girls before he has to choose one of them.
Maya made quite an impression on the show, leaving fans stunned as she strutted her stuff in a form-fitting number as she entered the mansion.
During the sexy slow-mo clip, viewers went wild as she looked incredible in the dress, which was adorned with cut-out details on the chest and stomach.
Leaving little to the imagination, the dress reached her thigh – where it featured a slit that went down her leg.
Maya also added inches to her incredible figure in a pair of strappy heels.
She received unanimous praise from viewers as she arrived in a sweeping gown with plunging detail that accentuated her cleavage.
