Love Island Games host Maya Jama shows off hidden matching tattoo with besties

Love Island Games host Maya Jama has showed off a secret matching tattoo she had done with two of her close pals.

The 29—year-old stunner shared a snap of her new inking with her three million fans, which showed a small smiley face with its tongue sticking out on her wrist. She tagged two close pals who shared matching tattoos in the same spot, captioning the Instagram story: “for lifeeee gang” accompanied by three emojis mimicking the tattoo.

Maya also has a small tattoo on her back that is rarely seen by fans. The ink is a tribute to her childhood sweetheart who was tragically gunned down in an attack when she was just 16 years old.

Speaking about Rico's tragic death in 2011, Maya said: ''That's the worst thing that's ever happened to me. It was unreal – the sort of thing that happens in films. "The experience gave me so much motivation to push with my career. At the time, work was the only thing that made me happy, so I just kept on going with it."

She added: "Bad things happen, but you've got to try to make good things out of that tough situation. That's what it taught me." Maya was instrumental in the catching and sentencing of the two killer's months later after she appeared on Crimewatch to appeal for information.

Maya also made headlines this week after sharing a very intimate portaloo poo story. Maya told a story to the contestants on Love Island games, revealing: “So, I had these strings on this dress, and I went in a Portaloo," she said. "They dripped in the loo, but I didn’t realise.

“I went upstairs and I realised ‘I can smell shit. What the f**k is going on?’ Yep, there was s**t on my strings. How mad – I thought one of the girls farted but it was me. To confirm, the bit with the s**t on it got cut off.”

Maya subsequently expanded on the story with a post on X, writing: “I can confirm it was not my own shit the string dipped in, which makes it even worse tbh I was hovering on a festival loo.”
