    Maya Jama was once left wheelchair-bound after falling off a kerb in Ayia Napa.

    The 28-year-old Love Island host opened up about the accident on Pretty Little Thing's Behind Closed Doors podcast.

    She said: "I went to Ayia Napa when I was 17 to host Charlie Sloth's show Fire In The Booth.

    "But the day before the actual beach party thing we were supposed to be hosting, I ended up slipping on a bit of mashed-up kerb. The bottom of my foot was hanging off."

    "I had to be in hospital for two days and ended up in a wheelchair for the rest of the time. I ripped a nerve and couldn’t feel it."

    She added: "I was getting carried into the ambulance like 'wahey' not knowing that I might not be able to bend my f*****g toes.

    "The big one doesn’t bend… it can bend but it doesn’t tuck. I will never forget that trip."

    It comes after the news that Maya has reportedly quit presenting BBC Glow Up.

    Glow Up: Britain’s Next Make-Up Star first came onto the screen in 2019 and was hosted by Stacey Dooley for the first two seasons.

    However, Maya took over hosting the third season in 2021, with the most recent fourth season airing last year.

    It’s been reported that Maya has quit her ties with the make-up show following the positive response to her on Love Island.

    "Maya loved her time hosting Glow Up for the last two series but has decided now not to return for another run," a source told The Sun.

    "I was a really difficult decision, but she’s going to be really busy doing two series of Love Island this year and couldn’t make it work."

    Maya has sent the internet into a frenzy shortly after this year’s Love Island aired last week.

    While another penned: "Seeing Maya Jama succeed at hosting Love Island is my favourite thing.”

    A third chimed in with: "Maya Jama really is killing it at hosting, yeah."
