Maya Jama's New BBC Series Is Giving Us Serious 'Love Island' Vibes

If, like us, you're looking to fill the gaping Love Island-shaped hole in your life, then Maya Jama's new BBC series could be just what you're after.

Coming to BBC Three at the end of June, Ibiza Dreams looks like it will offer the same sunny escapism we got from the Love Island villa.

Voiced by Radio 1 favourite and all-round joker Maya, the series will jet us over to the White Isle.

There, we meet a group of bright-eyed young Brits hyped to spend a summer of a lifetime spent living, working and playing in the clubbing destination.

Expect a hot serving of Love Island-worthy ingredients: wanderlust, relationship dramas, blossoming friendships - and abs that look like they were carved out of stone, of course.

Unlike the Islanders - whose main responsibilities included topping up their tans or nailing a 'salmon dive' into the pool - Ibiza Dreams brings a work element into the picture.

As the summer unfolds, the cast experience highs and lows as they pursue their dreams of carving out a career in the holiday destination, and have their entrepreneurial spirits tested.

We know what you're thinking: who's in the cast?

Well, in episode one we'll meet 18-year-old Max, who's looking to earn a living as Ibiza's top iPhone repairman. Fair play, who knows how many of those things end up smashed on the floor of Pacha?

Next up, we have Liam, Callum and George, who've traded in their uninspiring 9-5 jobs in the UK to start a business creating promo videos for Ibiza's bars and restaurants with no prior experience.

The hopeful lads are set to produce content for mega club brands like Wayne Lineker's Ocean Beach, but are they up to the challenge?

Meanwhile, party girl Harriet - who worked as a spa therapist before she came to Ibiza - is yet to find a job on the island.

Tragically, she's spent the summer trying to get over the death of two friends. With her pals in town, the lure to go out raving is irresistible - until her money runs out.

Not forgetting Sanchez, who has big dreams of making it as not only a VIP Host but a respected DJ too.

No pressure then eh, Sanchez?

In these challenging times, Ibiza Dreams is the sun-splashed fantasy we're after - the TV equivalent of an all-inclusive getaway with your best mates.
