Love Island fans concerned as Maya Jama shares health woes hours before reunion

Love Island host Maya Jama has sparked concern among avid fans of the ITV2 dating show after posting a health update on social media just hours before the 2023 summer reunion is set to kick off with the finalists of this season.

The popular TV star, 28, took to her Instagram stories on Sunday to share that she has been feeling unwell, having woken up with swollen glands and a temperature on one of the most important nights of her career to date, as the entire cast of the summer series of Love Island is set to reunite after Jess Harding and Sammy Root championed the show on Monday night.

Bristolian beauty Maya is set to be at the helm of the reunion alongside former islander turned presenter Indiyah Polack and Made In Chelsea star Sam Thompson, who have joined Maya each week for Love Island's spin-off show, Aftersun. However, the Love Island host has cast doubt over whether she will be well enough to front the special reunion tonight, after telling her fans that she felt 'down' just hours before the show is set to kick off.

Taking to her stories, Maya posted a picture of herself without makeup and with a sad expression on her face as she told her fans of the ordeal she has been handed ahead of the reunion. "Feeling sorry myself lol. Glands are swollen and I've got a temperature... man down," she penned.

It wasn't long before concerned fans flocked to social media platform X (formerly known as Twitter) to share their thoughts on whether or not Maya would be well enough to front the show as one shared: "I hope Maya can pull herself out of feeling sick and host tonight!!!! It literally will be so dull without her."

"Cannot wait to see what Maya Jama is going to wear tonight!! I hear rumours she might have to pull out of the reunion though," another echoed, while someone else added: "I reckon she'll be fine! It's Maya guys, she's not going to miss this and let us down."

It's expected that the whole cast will join Maya on the famous Aftersun sofa, including runners-up Whitney and Lochan, Ella and Tyrique who finished in third place, and Molly and Zachariah, who landed in fourth place after their whirlwind romance in the villa.

Tonight, Love Island viewers will find out how Jess and Sammy have been getting on since leaving the villa and which couples from this year’s show have stayed together, following reports some have already gone their separate ways.

Some Love Islanders also appear to have been rubbing their fellow castmates up the wrong way with comments made since the show ended - and secret feuds have been exposed - so there's sure to be a lot of drama when they all get back together tonight.

*Love Island: The Reunion will air at 9pm on Sunday August 6 on ITV2 and ITVX
