Maya Jama has been announced as the host of the new Love Island spin-off series which will go to air later this year.

Love Island Games will take place in Fiji and bring together previous 'bombshell' islanders from various different franchises including the UK, Australia and America, for a second shot at love as they compete in the brand-new format.

Speaking about the new spin-off, the US streaming service Peacock, said: "LOVE ISLAND has entertained viewers worldwide, delivering love, laughs, heartbreak and an unending supply of "bombshell" Islanders.

"Now, for the first time ever, some of the most memorable Islanders in show history - hailing from across the globe - are getting together under one roof for LOVE ISLAND GAMES.

"In this cheeky new iteration, romance will meet reality as Islanders are faced with both team and couples' challenges, all while navigating dating, eliminations, recoupling and dramatic new arrivals."
