Maya Jama has enjoyed a blossoming career over the last few years or so as she continues to impress Brits with her bubbly personality and drop dead gorgeous looks.
Although she first aspired to become an actress, the 27-year-old star soon realised her love for presenting.
In 2014, Maya appeared on Maya's FIFA World Cup Cities for Copa90. Not long after this, Maya landed her role with MTV as a presenter for The Wrap Up in the same year.
But the brunette bombshell became loved by fans across the country when she presented Channel 4's The Circle and Peter Crouch: Save Our Summer.
And let's not forget her publicised relationship with chart-topping rapper Stormzy and her tantalising pics that leave her fans wanting more.
Daily Star has taken a look inside Maya's life as she prepares to announce the winner of Simon Cowell's new ITV talent show Walk the Line this evening (December 17).
Curvaceous babe Maya has previously been very open about her sex life and what she enjoys in the bedroom.
Earlier this year, the confident lass had fans in a frenzy when she confessed that she loved a certain sexual position.
While appearing on ITV's Celebrity Juice in May, Maya admitted that she likes participating in "69" during one of the show's challenges.
Celebrity Juice team captain Emily Atack and guest Joe Swash had to guess what sexy word the others were re-enacting while jumping on a trampoline.
But Maya quickly guessed that Joe was saying the number "69" while on the trampoline.
Maya shouted in glee: "I love a 69!"
Amazed by her admission, viewers at home rushed to Twitter to share their thoughts.
One viewer penned: "One of the funniest episodes I’ve seen in a while.. Joe swash was hilarious.. And Maya Jama loves 69…. who’d have known."
But this isn't the only sexy confession that the star has made, as she previously admitted to openly watching pornography.
While on Celebrity Juice, Maya said: "I went to a lot of gymnasiums. And I saw a lot of porn! I usually go to orgasm editing, but that’s another day’s story."
Brunette beauty Maya has had a fairly publicised love-life as her relationships have often played out under the scrutiny of the public eye.
The presenter first became known to fans for her relationship with British rapper and song writer Stormzy.
The gorgeous couple dated for four years before parting ways at the end of 2019.
Fans were definitely surprised by their abrupt split and wondered what led to the cause of their breakup.
The couple's split appeared to have taken place just a few days after Stormzy attended Maya’s 25th birthday celebrations in East London.
Not long after their break up was revealed to the public, the pair initially claimed to have ended things on good terms so they could focus on their careers. But the rumour mill went into overdrive when Maya unfollowed Stormzy on social media.
Many fans believed that Stormzy had cheated on Maya, but the rapper came out to defend himself and denied the cheating claims.
Stormzy said: "I didn’t cheat. What I did was a big disrespect, what I did was very inconsiderate.
"It didn’t need to be cheating for it still to be a disrespect. But I thought now is a good time to say I didn’t cheat on my ex."
Following on from her relationship with Stormzy Maya was linked to several other stars including Canadian rapper Drake. But the former Radio 1 presenter continually squashed the rumours.
She also warned fans to stop linking her with people she didn't know.
On social media the star said: "Hey, my friends just rang me, 'Are you seeing so and so,' somebody I don't know.
"It's not the time of day to talk about it. I can't be bothered."
She added: "But please, people, girls and boys, stop saying you're s***ging people, stop saying you're seeing people that you're not, because when it comes back around, and the information gets back to the person, it is so embarrassing for you."
Last month, rumours regarding Maya's love life emerged once again but this time it looks like things are official.
Maya was pictured locking lips with her basketball player boyfriend, Ben Simmons, during a Wimbledon match in July.
In May, a source said: "Things are hotting up for Maya and Ben. They are really into each other and the fact she flew to Philadelphia to be with him says a lot.
"They had a fun two weeks together. It's nice to see her so happy."
Basketball player Ben was previously linked to model Kendall Jenner.
Strained relationship with dad
Brunette bombshell Maya has an estranged relationship with her father who was in and out of prison since she was two-years-old.
Maya's father Hussein was previously arrested for glassing a man with a bottle in 1996 and was sent to jail for twelve months when Maya was a toddler.
In 1999, Hussein went back into prison again, leaving Maya's mother Sadie alone with daughter and Maya's younger brother.
Years later, Hussein who originates from Somaliland, previously appeared on a 2017 Channel 5 documentary about families whose dads go to prison to hopefully reconnect with Maya.
Talking to The Sun, the father-of-two said: "I agreed to go on the programme because I wanted to reconnect and show I had changed. She promised that we could be together again if I sorted my life out and stopped going to prison.
"I was good to my word and kept out of trouble, but I haven’t spoken to her since. I have tried to contact Maya and just want to be in touch because life is too short.
"I’d love to take her out for a meal to put my side across and explain that I never meant to hurt her."
Maya most definitely had a year like no other in 2020. In fact, things went so well for the young star it led her to become a millionaire at the age of 26.
In December 2020, it was revealed the Maya had become a millionaire thanks to her presenting roles, a new fashion line, her range of skincare masks and her clothing collections with PrettyLittleThing and JD Sports.
Not only this but Maya also accumulated large fees from modelling with Maybelline and Adidas.
Talking to Evening Standard about her millionaire status, Maya appeared to be very happy but told the publication she had already crossed the millionaire mark two years prior.
