Maya Jama’s boyfriends: Her dating history from Ben Simmons to Stormzy scandal
Maya Jama rose to stardom presenting a wide range of shows across TV and radio, from Peter Crouch: Save Our Summer and The Circle to her own shows on Rinse FM and BBC Radio 1.
Maya, now 27, has recently been named as a presenter on the upcoming ITV gameshow Walk The Line, which starts on December 12.
Born and raised in Bristol she moved to London aged 18 to pursue a career in the media, first in acting before realising she was more suited for presenting.
In 2020 she launched her own range of hydrating sheet masks, MIJ masks, alongside her other roles.
Throughout her glittering career she has dated and been linked to a number of very high profile names.

Maya has been in a relationship with NBA player Ben Simmons since the summer, with the pair confirming rumours they were dating with a kiss during Wimbledon in July.
They were seen looking very cosy sitting net to each other, exchanging words and cuddling and were also spotted leaving together.
The basketball player dated supermodel Kendall Jenner before moving on with Maya.
Rumours about the two began in May 2021 after Jama posted a picture of herself in a kitchen that was thought to be that of Simmons, as well as wearing shorts he has been seen wearing.
The pair had also exchanged love heart emojis on one of her Instagram posts, adding further fuel to the fire, with Simmons also having shared a screen shot of the two on FaceTime together.

Stormzy has denied this is true.
In an interview in 2020 he said: "Do you know what? I actually didn't cheat. I swear to God, I didn't cheat.
"So we had broken up and I was out publicly being a rapper, being very inconsiderate to the fact that I've just come out of the most public relationship.
"We'd broken up and I went out and I acted disrespectfully. I was just out in clubs. I knew the world still thought I was in a relationship and I was out looking like I didn't give a f**k.
"It didn't need to be cheating for it to be a disrespect."
In the interview Stormzy said he was "definitely" still in love with Maya.

An innocent bystander, he was shot during a gun battle in Bristol in 2011 following the St Paul Carnival celebrations.
Speaking to Cosmopolitan she said: "When I was 16 I went through a lot. With my boyfriend passing, it gave me a fearless approach to things. I felt like life was really short."
"Out of everything that happened in my life, that was a reality check on a massive scale. At 16 you think the world is a fairytale and it took me out of that. It made me even more determined."
