"I’m ready for it, the fans are waiting, there's lots of anticipation and I can’t wait to meet this year's islanders. Love Island is the official start of summer," she said.

Maya added: "I’ll be honest, I’m hoping for drama. I want loads of love and happy couples at the end, but I do want to be entertained, so I’m hoping for lots of fiery moments."

On her Instagram Stories on Sunday (June 2nd) Maya shared she was "nervous" about her hosting gig, despite this being her third time at the helm.

She said: "I'm so excited but I also get a bit nervous," she told followers before saying it felt like "an inside scream."
