The star recently hit the headlines when it was revealed that Love Island bosses are rumoured to be considering replacing her as host of the hit TV show.  

The star was given a ‘lukewarm’ reception by fans when she hosted this summer’s series.

Laura, whose husband Iain Stirling provides the comic voiceover commentary for the show, divided fans earlier this year, with many noting her ‘lack of chemistry’ with the contestants. 

Both Maya Jama and Maura Higgins are tipped to be possible replacements for Laura.

TV chiefs are said to want to ‘revamp’ the 2022 series, meaning Laura’s role is ‘hanging in the balance’.

A source told The Sun, ‘Producers are keen to keep the show fresh and are keeping their options open’.

‘They have been impressed with both Maya and Maura, and think either could bring the necessary pizzazz and sexiness to the role’. 

‘They want some-one who is fun and can connect with people’. 

Maura has obviously taken part in the show herself and knows it inside out so could easily relate to contestants and what they are going through.’

They added: ‘It’s one of the best gigs in showbiz, with a plum six-figure salary and frequent trips to sunny Majorca. So there are plenty of people hungry for the role.’

The paper further reported that Crouchy’s Year-Late Euros presenter Maya, 27, and former Love Islander Maura, 30, aren’t the only two stars being considered for the role.

Radio 1 host Arielle Free is also said to be in the mix, after the 33-year-old delighted Love Island fans when she helped out with this year’s Aftersun.
