Maya Jama is reportedly in talks to host the BRIT Awards in February 2023.
The presenter, 28, could be ready to take the helm, it has been claimed – after impressing bosses as a reporter at the event earlier this year when comedian Mo Gilligan was hosting.
It’s been a busy month for Maya, who has just been confirmed as the new Love Island presenter, replacing Laura Whitmore.
Big career moves: Maya Jama is reportedly in talks to host the Brit Awards in February 2023 (pictured at the NTAs last week)
If selected, Maya would become the first solo female presenter at the annual music awards held in London since Cat Deeley presented them in 2004.
A source told The Sun: “Maya Jama has proven to be a really confident and competent host and young people love her which is key at an event like the Brit Awards.
“Since helping out earlier this year, her star power has increased and she’s had talks about hosting the show herself.
Kind! It’s been a busy week for Maya, who has just been confirmed as the new Love Island host, replacing Laura Whitmore
“There are many candidates vying for this year’s job as the show’s host and nothing has been signed yet – but Maya has made it clear that she would love to take on the role.”
However, the BRITs, which take place on February 11, could clash with South Africa’s winter series Love Island, which she will host in the new year.
Maya representatives have been contacted by MailOnline for comment.
Amazing: If selected, Maya would be the first female solo presenter at the annual music awards held in London since Cat Deeley presented them in 2004 (Maya at the Brit Awards last year).
Last year, The Masked Singer judge Mo took over as host from Jack Whitehall, who resigned from the BRITs after four years presenting the awards show.
It comes after it was revealed Maya will host the first of two series of Love Island to be filmed in South Africa from early 2023.
Maya said in a statement: “I’ve always been such a huge Love Island fan and I’m so excited to host one of the nation’s most popular shows! I can’t wait to get to the villa and meet all the islanders.”
Both Maya and Love Island shared a video of themselves scrolling through stories about being the alleged presenter on various media outlets to confirm the news.

The Love Island account shared: “Okay the rumors are true. Say hello to your brand new #LoveIsland host @mayajama!”
Maya wrote in the comments section: SO FUCKING EXCITED. BRING ME TO THIS ISLAND. ❤️’
Fans seemed to think she was the perfect choice to replace Laura.
They immediately took to Twitter and wrote, “Maya Jama will be a great host of Love Island.”
‘Maya Jama to host Love Island is excellent news!’
“Maya Jama is hosting Love Island and she’s going to be hotter than any of the girls on the actual show.”
Director of Reality Programming & Acquisitions, Paul Mortimer, said: “Finding a new presenter to follow the wonderful Laura Whitmore has never been easy.
“However, in Maya Jama we have another high profile fan of the show who will be a great addition to the Love Island family.
Oh no! However, the Brits, which takes place on February 11, could clash with winter series Love Island in South Africa, which she will host in the new year
“Cool, charming and charismatic, I speak for all of us when I say Maya as well as Laura and of course the much missed Caroline Flack will bring a unique presentation style to the show. We are very happy to have them on board.”
Laura announced in August this year that she was leaving the show and would not be returning to host the next series of the ITV2 dating show.
The 37-year-old Irish presenter joined in 2020 and has hosted the hugely popular reality program and its spin-off Aftersun for three series.
Yay! It comes after Maya was confirmed as the new presenter and will host the first of two series to start filming in South Africa from early 2023
