TV execs are thought to be keen on ‘revamping’ the show for 2022, and are eyeing a number of new faces to take the helm of the hugely popular ITV2 dating series.
According to The Sun, Maya Jama, who proved to be a hit when she starred on BBC One’s Crouchy’s Year-Late Euros, is being considered, alongside Love Island 2019 breakout star Maura Higgins.
Maura has more recently proved her presenting chops when she was named as the host of beauty and make-up competition Glow Up Ireland.
“Producers are keen to keep the show fresh and are keeping their options open,” a source said.
“They have been impressed with both Maya and Maura, and think either could bring the necessary pizzazz and sexiness to the role.
“They want someone who is fun and can connect with people. Maura has obviously taken part in the show herself and knows it inside out so could easily relate to contestants and what they are going through.”
Elsewhere, a petition launched by fans to make TOWIE legend Gemma Collins the new host of Love Island has also gained traction.
However, ITV has dismissed all speculation that they may be looking to replace Laura, who took over hosting duties of the show from the late Caroline Flack in 2020.
In a statement to HuffPost, a Love Island spokesperson said: “This is not true.
Tyla has contacted ITV for comment.
This year’s Love Island concluded earlier this month, with Millie Court and Liam Reardon being announced the winners after beating favourites Toby Aromolaran and Chloe Burrows in the final.
A reunion episode will be broadcast on Sunday 5th September at 9pm on ITV2.
Love Island is available to view on the ITV Hub and BritBox.
