We’re all dreaming of a summer holiday and Maya Jama is making that a reality as she whisked herself off to LA earlier this week.

On Tuesday the TV presenter packed her bags and jumped on a private jet to go and see her new man, Australian basketball player Ben Simmons, where he lives in LA.

Rumours circulated last month that the pair were dating after they were spotted leaving the same London restaurant minutes apart, and they were seen smooching at Wimbledon just a few weeks ago, too.

Since touching down at the athlete's Hidden Hills mansion Maya has been making use of his very big pool, soaking up the sun and making an unlikely friend in a snake. We take a closer look…

Maya clearly couldn’t wait to get away and spend some quality time with 24-year-old Ben.

The radio presenter took to Instagram to share a photo of her excitement with her 2.3 million followers where she can be seen grinning away with a drink in hand – the perfect way to start off any holiday.

Captioning the post “Out of office”, Maya looked comfy but still beautiful in an oversized t-shirt and white shorts, which she’d accessorised with a gold necklace and watch, as she cosies up into the jet’s tan leather chair.

She also sported fresh new nails which were painted in a bright orange, the perfect shade for a summer holiday.

As well as the photo, the care-free 26-year-old shared a silly video of her dancing – typical Maya style.

Pulling a face, Maya starts to wiggle her hips while moving her t-shirt up and down before not being able to hold the face any longer and bursts out laughing.


Her followers were delighted to see the MIJ Mask founder so happy with one commenting “Living your best life we love to see it” and another adding “Happiness looks BeYOUtiful on you”.

Having finally touched down in LA Maya was quick to soak up those summer rays.

She seemed to be loving life as she posted a snap of her relaxing on a sun lounger by the pool in Ben’s garden with her legs out in the sun.


Makeup-free Maya looked flawless as she lay on her sunlounger with her hair sprawled over her grey and white towel, while trying to block out the sun from her eyes.

But it looks like Maya didn’t just spend all her time relaxing by the pool and enjoyed a night out with her friends too.

Wearing a full face of makeup and gold hooped earrings, Maya posted a picture on her stories of her squinting at the camera, captioned: “Posting a picture to see how drunk I was”.


The star also spent a day making an unlikely friend in a big yellow snake.

Wearing an oversized grey top, tracksuit bottoms and green cap, Maya can be seen holding a VERY large yellow snake as it coils around her body.

She captioned the snap “We’re bonding” – rather you than us Maya…

Maya was previously in a relationship with British rapper Stormzy, but their relationship came to an abrupt end in 2019 after rumours circulated that the artist may have been unfaithful.

Last year Maya said that she would try and keep her next serious relationship more private.

She told Cosmopolitan Magazine: “It makes me nervous [about] who I’m going to be with next, because if they aren’t in the public eye already, maybe they’re going to be brought into [it]. It’s made me extra careful.

“I was 20 when I got into that [with Stormzy]. Now life is different. Even social media is bigger. It’s going to be harder to keep things private but I’ll do my best.”
