Maura Higgins had just landed her biggest TV gig yet!

Yes, the reality star legend will host the US version of Love Island Aftersun.

Last season, Maura worked alongside main presenter Sarah Hyland as the social media host, doing interviews with axed Islanders to stream online.

But it looks like Maura made such a good impression with the US audience, that producers decided to bump up her role by offering her a job on her very own spin-off chat show.

According to US publication, Deadline, the talk show, which will air on Peacock, will serve as a companion series to Love Island USA Season 6 and will feature Maura interviewing the eliminated Islanders as they chat about their experiences inside the villa and debut exclusive behind-the-scenes content.

Maura is certainly no stranger to the Love Island world having originally joined the UK show as a bombshell contestant back in Season 5.

It has now also been confirmed, that Ariana Madix, who first found fame on reality hit Vanderpump Rules, will be the show’s main host in replace of Sarah.

Maura took to Instagram to share the news, with many showing their vote of support for the presneter.

It’s fair to say, Maura has had quite the career since leaving the Love Island villa back in 2019.

However, just earlier this year she confessed that she didn’t think she would last a week inside the villa!

Appearing on the cover of Maxim, Maura admitted: “I never expected anything and maybe that was the best thing to do. There was no career strategy or intention.”

Love Island Aftersun will premiere on Peacock starting June 15.
