LOVE ISLE HOST: Maya Jama set to replace Laura Whitmore on Love Island 

MAYA Jama is replacing Laura Whitmore on ITV2 dating mega-hit Love Island next year.

A source told The Sun: “Maya was ITV’s dream option. She is fun, beautiful and a brilliant presenter. She was discussed as a possible replacement for Caroline [Flack] two years ago — but now the time is right.

“They think she’ll make the show her own and carry on from where Caroline left off.

“They’re just in the process of finalising the last few details — but barring any huge surprises she will be announced formally very soon.

“They are just dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s.”

An ITV spokesperson told Politicalite: “Our new host will be announced in due course.”

Laura replaced late TV presenter Caroline Flack and hosted the show for three series.

However, she quit ‘Love Island’ in August, hinting at some issues behind the scenes.

She said: “I hate having anything I’m not allowed to say. I couldn’t ask Love Islanders if they were OK.”

“It is hard. Your face is the front of the show but I am one tiny person and have no producing role so I couldn’t say if I didn’t think something was OK.”
