Maya Jama has entered the Love Island villa for the first time as the show's host and fans can't get enough.

The TV presenter and DJ, 28, made an epic entrance as the winter series returned to South Africa on Monday, January 16.

ITV viewers are set for a winter of the same muggy behaviour and jaw-dropping twists that we've come to expect from the reality dating series.

For the show's ninth series, we have also been treated to a brand new villa and a new batch of singletons.

Maya Jama takes over as Love Island host as ITV series returns

Jama was confirmed as the new host of Love Island in October 2022 after former host Laura Whitmore stood down from the role after three years in August last year.

Speaking to ITV about her new role, Jama said:"It feels amazing, it’s really, really exciting. It’s been a weird feeling because you find out and then it’s the wait and the build up.

"I just can’t wait for it to start. I’m counting down the seconds and the days to get to South Africa."

The Glow Up: Britain's Next Make-Up Star presenter will also be hosting the debrief talk show Love Island: Aftersun which returns on Sunday.

Jama will appear alongside The Morning After podcast hosts Made in Chelsea star Sam Thompson and ex-islander Indiyah Polack.

The panel will also be joined by two special guests - last year's runners up Tasha Ghouri and Andrew Le Page.

ITV viewers have been reacting to Jama's debut on social media as she arrived in the South African villa by helicopter.

One fan joked: "I’m sorry but I could not go on a love island hosted by Maya Jama bcos pls, who the f*** is looking at any other girl when Maya Jama is in the room?? Like let’s be for real now."

A second person chimed in: "Watching Love Island for a compelling dating show < watching Love Island for Maya Jama."

A third user posted: "Don’t know about anyone else but I am ready for 7 weeks of Maya Jama."

While a fourth added:"Maya Jama already is the bombshell."

With another person commenting:" The only reason I’m watching #LoveIsland is for Maya Jama."

Love Island continues at 9 pm on ITV 2 and ITV X on Tuesday, January 17.
