Love Island fans are convinced that new host Maya Jama took a subtle swipe at her rapper-ex Stormzy in front of the nation.
Maya met the latest batch of islanders in the first episode of the winter 2023 series on Monday night (January 17) which saw the sexy singletons paired up in their couples for the first time.
But she didn't shy away from bringing up her own rocky love life when she reminded islanders how difficult it is to find your "perfect match."

Before she left the villa, Maya said: "But don't forget, finding your perfect match is never that simple. Trust me, I know."
She added: "I will see you all soon and have an amazing time. Take care."
Her candid confession went down well with the cast as it prompted a laugh from stars like Tanya Manhenga who may have understood how she felt.
