Maya Jama revealed she has got a new ankle tattoo as she posed for an Instagram video on Sunday teasing the inking.

Maya showcased her incredible figure during the outing in a pair of blue denim long shorts which she teamed with a white crop top. 

Speaking to the camera and giving fans a glimpse into her new inking, she said: ‘So we have basically decided to get a tattoo on a hangover. 

‘I didn’t know what I wanted until about two seconds ago. I’ve decided to get a lion.’

It comes as Maya is reportedly being lined up to host the 2024 BRIT awards alongside two mystery presenters, after Mo Gilligan, 35, stepped down.

The presenter, who has been hosting the Love Island’s winter and summer editions, as well as the spin-off AfterSun for over a year, has been a huge hit with audiences.

Maya, who took over as Love Island presenter from Laura Whitmore, 38, has previously hosted BBC makeup series Glow Up, Walk the Line and Crouchy’s Year-Late Euros: Live.

The TV personality also garnered heaps of praise for her red-carpet reporting role at the music awards in 2022 and is said to have impressed ITV bosses.

An insider told The Sun: ‘She is the hottest presenter in the UK right now and is ideal for the presenting cast.

‘There has been six years of solo male hosts, so it’s time to mix up the formula and there is a lot of buzz about the new line-up.’

If Maya – who is dating rapper Stormzy – took on the role, she would be the first female presenter since 2017 when Emma Willis hosted alongside Dermot O’Leary.

MailOnline have contacted ITV and Maya’s reps for comment. The organisers of the music event declined to comment.

The BRITs, which are taking place on Saturday March 3 at London’s O2 Arena have been hosted by comedian Mo for the last two years but he stepped down from the role in November.

The funnyman revealed the news in a statement on Instagram, writing: ‘I’ve had the most incredible time working on The Brits but unfortunately as I’ll be in the US for my first World Tour next spring, I’m sorry to say that I’ll be stepping down from hosting duties for 2024 and handing over the baton.

‘It’s been phenomenal to work on this iconic event. I’ve loved getting to know all the remarkable people who run The Brit Trust and the outstanding Brit School.

‘The tireless work you do to improve lives through the power of music and the creative arts is sensational and I promise to continue supporting wherever I can.

‘Thank you to ITV for making a young man’s dream come true and to all the brilliant performers, guests, production team and most importantly, the viewers at home for all your amazing support.

‘It’s been an honour. See you on Tour.’
