Maya Jama is reportedly in talks to host the Brit Awards 2023.
The presenter seems fully booked and busy after recently landing the Love Island presenting job following the departure of Laura Whitmore.
Next year’s awards are set to take place on February 11, 2023, and it looks like Maya, 28, is among the top picks.
It won’t be the star’s first time at the event – she and Munya Chawawa teamed up as red carpet reporters for this year’s event while Mo Gilligan hosted the main show, and is thought to have impressed bosses.
A source told The Sun: ‘Maya Jama has proven to be a really confident and competent host and the young people love her, which is important for an event like the Brit Awards.
‘Since he helped out earlier this year, his star power has grown and he is in talks to host the show himself.
‘There are plenty of contenders vying for this year’s job as show presenter and nothing has been signed – but Maya has made it clear she would love to take on the role.’
If she lands the role, Maya will be the first solo female presenter since 2004, when Kat Deeley hosted.
However, there might be a clash in her schedule considering she is set to host the Winter 2023 series of Love Island in the new year.
Jack Whitehall previously hosted the Brits for four years, with comedian Mo taking over last year and wowing audiences.
For the first time in the history of the music awards show, which turns 30 next year, the bash will be held at The O2 in London on Saturday.
There has also been a change at the top after Damian Christian, managing director and president of promotions at Atlantic Records, was announced as the new chairman of the Brit committee for 2023.
Explaining the reason for the swap to Saturday, he said: ‘The Brits is the biggest night of the year for the UK music industry, and we want to showcase the best and most diverse British talent possible.’
‘Moving the event to Saturday will breathe new life into the iconic event, while also introducing a new and more engaged audience,’ he promised.
Last year’s show, which took place on Tuesday, suffered its lowest TV audience ever, drawing an average of just 2.7 million viewers overnight.
This made it the lowest-rated show since it began live broadcasting in 1999, watched by 9.86 million fans – although YouTube streaming figures for international fans are not counted.
Adele won big in 2022, taking home a total of three major awards for Artist, Album and Song of the Year after releasing 30 albums and the single Easy On Me.
Ed Sheeran, Dua Lipa and Billie Eilish also took home the top prize.
