Maya Jama opens up about her love life – after she was recently linked to Jamie Redknapp

Maya Jama has opened up about her love life, weeks after she was linked to Jamie Redknapp.

The 25-year-old presenter and the former footballer sparked romance rumours earlier this month, when they were spotted filming A League Of Their Own in Germany.

Although fans were hoping for Maya and Jamie to get together, the BBC Radio 1 host has revealed that she’s happy bring single – after splitting from grime rapper Stormzy in August.


Speaking about her love life on The Jonathan Ross Show, which will air on Saturday, Maya said: “I’m not on the hunt. I’m not on any apps, basically. No, I’m not prowling.”

“I’m just living my life. [I’ve just bought my first house] it’s really exciting. I’m trying to make it into MTV Cribs… I want to get a pole from my bedroom down to my front room, that’s part of my plan,” she continued.

“Single life is good. I’m just working.”

During her interview, Maya also revealed her plans to get into acting, and admitted that was nearly cast in popular E4 series Skins when she was a teenager.

Maya explained: “They came to my school when I was 15 and they were scouting for Skins and I got to the final one and it was out of me and this other girl out of all of these thousands of kids and I was really convinced that I was going to get it.”

“I told everyone, ‘I don’t know if I’m going to be able to see you again because I’m about to be really famous,’ and I didn’t get it.”

She continued: “After that, I said forget acting I’m going to do something that’s really easy like presenting. But now I want to venture out and try. I just got an acting agent and I’m watching films more intently and looking at the facial expressions.”
