Laura expressed her excitement for Maya being the upcoming Love Island host in a comment on the Instagram photo, saying that she would be fantastic in the position. Peter Crouch: Save Our Summer, a sports-comedy game show on BBC One, featured Maya as a presenter alongside Peter Crouch and Alex Home. Additionally, she hosted the game show Glow Up: Britain’s Next Make-Up on BBC Three.

Paul Mortimer, the director of ITV, commented on Maya’s participation in the dating game show and noted that replacing Laura was not at all simple. Paul did, however, add that Maya was a good addition to Love Island because she loved the show and was also gorgeous, endearing, and engaging. Paul said that having Maya on board has made the whole team happy.

On December 18, 2022, NBA basketball player Ben Simmons proposed to Maya. But after a few blissful months as almost-newlyweds, sources claimed in July 2022 that the couple had called off their engagement.
