Maya Jama has spoken out about her split from Stormzy, saying it was so difficult because people just saw it as "entertainment".
The Radio One presenter broke up with the rapper in August after four years together and everybody had something to say about, with rumours swirling over the reason.
In a candid interview with the Evening Standard, the 25-year-old said: "I used to read magazines when I was little and see all these Hollywood people break up and they didn't feel like real people."
However when it was her turn, she said it felt so real.
Maya added: "And then when you're in that position, you're like, 'Oh s***, it's very real.'"
And while Maya made the decision to split with the grime singer, who she'd met back in 2014 at the Red Bull Culture Clash, she said she was "scared" of dating.
"I haven't been single in so long, how the f**k do you flirt anymore?! I've been basically with my friends 24/7," she added.
And while she found being in the public eye tough, Maya managed to move past the comments.
"People find something else to talk about," she said.
The presenter has been loving single life, spending it eating, drinking and chatting with her pals in her apartment. A girl after our hearts.
"I was like, 'I miss this a little bit,'" she added. "I'm having fun. I live on my own now. Solo bitch."
"I've got this little flat that reminds me of a Sex And The City apartment. But without the sex.
"I feel like the world's my oyster."
But when asked about using dating apps, Maya scoffed at the idea responding: "Can you imagine?".
We suppose that would be a little tricky being a celebrity and all that.
Maya has other things on her mind though other than dating, now hoping to break into acting and she has a very specific role in mind.
She said: "[I would like to be] a Bond girl, but a feminist one. Not the typical damsel in distress.
"It would be like, I'm the bad bitch here. Maybe even a female Bond. Those kind of roles. Powerful."
We're all for a female James Bond - we need to make this happen.
