Love Island narrator Iain Stirling gives verdict on Maya Jama after she replaced his wife Laura Whitmore as host | The Sun
LOVE Island narrator Iain Stirling has given his take on new host Maya Jama – after she replaced his wife in the role.
The Scot, 34, was quizzed on Wednesday's Good Morning Britain after former Radio 1 DJ Maya, 28, burst onto Love Island's new series in South Africa.
On the opening day, Maya left show fans all saying the same thing as she arrived at the villa in a stunning red crochet top.
The Sun revealed Maya would replace Laura Whitmore last year.
It came after Celebrity Juice team captain Laura, 37, told how she was leaving the high profile presenter role after three series.
Admitting he was narrating the current series from a "man cave" in London, Iain was quizzed how he "judged" Maya's stint so far.
