Earlier this year, the fan-favourite TV presenter made her debut on the ITV2 competition for the winter series, not only wowing viewers with her effortlessly charismatic personality, but also leaving jaws on the floor with her show-stopping looks.
Who can forget the black cut-out number that the 28-year-old wore during her very first episode, proving (as if we had any doubts before) that she had no qualms about going bold and turning heads?
Metro.co.uk can now exclusively share Maya’s first look for the 2023 summer series – and yet again, she’s brought the fire.
Before the 10 islanders entered their brand new home for the next few weeks – or perhaps months – the TV personality stood for a photograph in front of the villa’s famous heart-shaped arch, turning to look over her shoulder.
The TV personality donned an eye-catching white cut-out look for her entrance, with its crochet pattern reaching her ankles above her dazzling gold heels.

The dress, which has been designed by Cult Gaia and is called the Accalia Gown, costs a whopping £2,500 and also comes in a scarlet red.
While the number does up behind the neck, Maya’s cascading waves covered up the ties as she smized at the camera.
Tonight, five boys and five girls will enter the villa, sussing each other out for the first time and forming couples before getting to know one another.
They are: André Furtado, Catherine Agbaje, Ella Thomas, George Fensom, Jess Harding, Mehdi Edno, Mitchel Taylor, Molly Marsh, Ruchee Gurung and Tyrique Hyde, with their ages ranging from 21 to 26.

Speaking ahead of the launch of the 2023 summer series, Maya expressed her excitement over taking part, after making her debut earlier in the year for the winter edition.
‘It’s special. I feel now [after] the first one, I’ve got it and we’ve done it, all the nerves are gone a bit and now I’m ready to go,’ she said.
‘I’m so excited. It’s coming around so fast, I feel like we were just doing it yesterday and now it’s like “back at it again”.’
She acknowledged that she is feeling a little bit of pressure to do as well as last time, after taking over from Laura Whitmore.
Maya Jama wears Cult Gaia ahead of Love Island returning at 9pm tonight on ITV2 and ITVX.
