Love Island host Maya Jama shares snap with rarely-seen mum | The Sun

LOVE Island host Maya Jama celebrated her rarely-seen mum paying a visit as the pair enjoyed a spot of lunch.

The TV presenter, 28 – who this week bagged the iconic ITV2 anchor role after Laura Whitmore quit – was all smiles as she kicked back in her chic white home.

Maya went make-up free as she posed in a snug white top, which matched her parent's all-white tracksuit.

Sadie, who gave birth to Maya when she was 18, was seen munching a sandwich as her daughter celebrated: "Mum's in town."

She posed for another slide on the former Radio 1 host's Instagram feed as Maya could be heard saying: "Yeah you look cute, this is a video."

Maya has previously wowed fans with images of her look-a-like mum.

Last year, she shared a snap showing Sadie joining her on set in Bristol.

Posting a video during a break from filming with Chunkz, an excited Maya told her followers: “Mum’s here”.

Sadie previously appeared alongside Maya in All Round To Mrs Brown’s Boys and once again surprised viewers with her appearance.

Maya admitted they often get mistaken for sisters, adding: "All my boyfriends and friends that were guys fancied her."

Maya is incredibly close to her mum Sadie, who she grew up with in Bristol alongside brother Omar.

Speaking about their relationship previously, Maya told the Evening Standard: "She had me at 18, so our relationship was a bit different. I rebelled less because I was quite free.

"My mum's always been like, 'I want you to have your experiences — just tell me. I’m not going to judge you or shout at you.'"

But she added: "She’s banned from my parties though. She gets too drunk."

Meanwhile, ITV officially announced its new face of the hit dating show this week, weeks after The Sun exclusively revealed Maya had been chosen to front it.

Maya said: “I’ve always been such a massive Love Island fan and I’m so excited to be hosting one of the nation’s favourite shows! I can’t wait to get into the Villa to meet all of the Islanders.”

Director of Reality Programming & Acquisitions and Controller, ITV2, ItvBe & CITV, Paul Mortimer said: “Finding a new host to follow the wonderful Laura Whitmore was never going to be easy.

"In Maya Jama though, we have another high profile fan of the show who’ll be a great addition to the Love Island family. Cool, charming and charismatic, I speak for us all when I say Maya will also bring a unique presenting style to the show, as did Laura and, of course, the very much missed Caroline Flack. We’re very pleased to have her on board.”
