Announcing her departure from the series in September, Laura wrote on Instagram: “Some news! I won’t be hosting the next series of Love Island.”
“There are certain elements of the show I’ve found very difficult that cannot be changed some due to the format, including the flying back and forth to South Africa along with my new conflicting projects.”
“I wish it was still possible but know you’ll be in safe hands. I was only planning to fill in for Caroline for a series and it turned into 3 series.”
She concluded: “I hope I did you proud Caroline.”
The series is expected to have two seasons in 2023 so Maya has a busy year ahead of her!
