Maya Jama has been confirmed as the host of the first-ever Love Island Games, which is hitting our screens later this year.

The presenter took over from Laura Whitmore on hosting duties of the dating series earlier this year for the ninth and tenth seasons.

Now, it has been confirmed she will be hosting another season of the show; this time it’s the highly anticipated All-Stars spin-off.

The 29-year-old announced the news in an Instagram video, saying: “Hi everyone! I have some very, very exciting news.

“I’m off to Fiji for the first-ever Love Island Games! It is going to be amazing!

“Your favourites from Love Island UK, USA and Australia, plus some more are gonna be over there. So who do you want to come back and snatch the crown?

“I’m off… I will see you on Peacock… Love Island Games!”

The upcoming series is titled Love Island Games and is set to launch later this year, seeing Islanders from the US, UK, and Australia shows come together for a second go at romance.

This time around, the islanders who have already made their name on the show will be faced with team and couples challenges as well as dating, eliminations, recoupling, and new but familiar bombshells.

The Sun has now reported that ITV bosses are considering bringing in a major twist for the show, which would see some brand new contestants being brought in.

A source told the publication: “Love Island bosses want to make sure they’re out of the ratings slump when winter rolls around for All-Stars.”

“They are working out ways to give the show a real kick and to make the format have a lasting impact on viewers.

“At the moment it’s all just an open discussion and there are lots of ideas being put forward. Naturally, there is potential for old rivals to have it out on screen and to put old love triangles back into play.”
