Love Island hosts Laura Whitmore and Maya Jama ignore each other at Brits

The 2023 Brit Awards was full of memorable moments including Lewis Capaldi's incorrect introduction and even a nostalgic reunion between S Club 7, but two people who seemed less pleased to be in each other's company were Laura Whitmore and Maya Jama.

An insider at the awards show said to OK!: "They didn’t talk to each other once throughout the whole show, despite being on the same table."

The two women's shared experience of both hosting Love Island didn't seem to be enough for the pair to warrant striking up a conversation. Laura hosted the series from 2020-2022, and at the time of her exit she wrote on Instagram: "There are certain elements of the show I’ve found very difficult that cannot be changed."

Current host of the popular ITV dating show Maya did however chat with Laura's husband Iain Stirling, who also does Love Island voiceover duties.

"Iain talked to Maya but Laura didn’t – they were almost back to back at times and still didn’t interact," the insider continued.

Maya, 28, and Laura, 37, were even stood directly next to each other at one point, as can be clearly seen in a video obtained by OK!, but still decided to not communicate. Laura can be seen walking off to instead chat with Keith Lemon.

Our insider, who was also at the O2 Arena in London, added: "It’s hard to say what happened after but they didn’t appear that friendly with each other to say the least!"

Maya has been praised for her hosting skills after taking the reigns of Love Island, with fans saying she was "made for the show".

According to Daily Mail, Maya has secured 50% more air time than Laura.

Elsewhere at the BRITs, Tom Grennan came under fire for comments made about Ellie Goulding's boobs.

Ellie, 36, and Tom, 27, headed on stage to present the award for Best Newcomer on Saturday and shared a bizarre exchange in front of the audience, which saw singer-songwriter Tom ask Ellie: “I love what you’re doing. These are your real boobs?”

While, Jessie J looked incredible on the red carpet in an outfit that proudly displayed her growing bump.
