‘Finding the perfect partner is never that easy’: Maya Jama references new Love Island cast as she jokes about her own relationship struggles
Love Island’s brand new series kicked off on Monday night and new host Maya Jama certainly made an impression.

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

She quipped, “Remember, finding your perfect match 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.”
It comes after Stormzy previously admitted he blames himself for his split from the brunette beauty.

Still, the chart-topping one believes the experience actually helped him “grow up.”
In an episode of BBC Louis Theroux Interviews, the Vossi Bop hitmaker said: “My breakup was probably the biggest catalyst for growth as a man.
“It was like, ‘OK, you made a mistake and you’re losing someone you loved, someone you cared about, someone you care about especially.
“It’s probably the greatest loss a man can suffer, isn’t it? Aside from someone dying, that’s the greatest loss one can have.

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 at tonight’s 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.
