DJ and TV presenter Maya Jama is reportedly set to become the new host of ITV’s hit reality show Love Island.

Jama will takeover from current presenter Laura Whitmore who stepped down from the show following the latest summer series, finding “certain elements of the show very difficult”.

According to an ITV source via the Sun, “Maya was ITV’s dream option.She is fun, beautiful and a brilliant presenter.”

Jama has reportedly been in the eye of ITV execs for a while and was also “discussed as a possible replacement for Caroline two years ago”.

“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.”

A spokeswoman for ITV said: “Our new host will be announced in due course.”
