Love Island fans demand stunning TV presenter replaces Laura Whitmore – and she almost got the gig before | The Sun

LOVE Island fans are desperate for Maya Jama to replace Laura Whitmore on the show.

Laura, 37, announced she had quit last night after presenting just three series – and viewers already know who they want to replace her.

Maya, 28, was previously tipped to host the ITV2 show in 2019 after Caroline Flack stepped down.  

The presenter, who is engaged to Ben Simmons, admitted she nearly had to jet home early from holiday to take over – but the role was filled by Laura Whitmore.

She said at the time:  “You’re just kind of like, “Oh, that’s nice.” It’s a nice feeling that people want you to do something and it’s nice that people trust that you would be good at doing your job on such a big platform, so it’s flattering.”

And now fans are desperate for her to finally step into the host’s shoes.

Taking to Twitter to discuss it, one person wrote: “There’s only one person good enough for the @LoveIsland job and that’s @MayaJama.”
