Love Island star Wes Nelson has sparked rumours he’s dating presenter Maya Jama after he shared a snap of them looking rather cosy backstage at a TV appearance.

The pair where filming a new episode of ITV2 show Don’t Hate The Playaz, where Wes will perform his debut single See Nobody for the first time, when he posed next to Maya, who blew a kiss into the camera.

And after uploading the photo to his 1.6 million Instagram followers, Wes was inundated with comments suggesting a potential romance between him and Maya following her split from Stormzy last year.

One commenter wrote that Wes and Maya were “a lovely couple”, while another added, “You would make the best couple ❤️.”

A third fan commented, “Wes be like: ‘I'm taking your Mrs’ 😂😂,” with another calling him “Mr steal your girl”.

One more wrote, “Yes to this couple 🔥🔥🔥🔥.”

Yewande Biala and George Rains were not even in the villa at the same time but outside they seem to be having a whale of a time. Fans were buzzing in August when the Casa Amor star appeared to have Yewande's makeup all over his face.

Sadly though, it sounds like fans will be disappointed as Maya appeared to put an end to the speculation on Twitter.

When a fan sent her a screenshot of comments hinting at a romance with Wes, Maya replied, “Oh honey, it’s been this way.

“This is after he was on my team for a TV show but I’ve learnt even if I stood there with a sign on my head saying PRESENTER AT WORK, if I’m next to a man people will act like I linked him down the road for a snog.”

That’s that then.

WATCH DON'T ask them to sing the Love Island theme song 😬🤣 No Love Lost play 'Never Mind The Lyrics'

Wes has been single since splitting with 2019 Islander Arabella Chi in April after nine months of dating.

They were just one of many celeb couples to split in lockdown amid claims their six year age gap caused problems in their relationship.

“It's all over. They started to grow apart and the age gap became really noticeable between them,” a source told The Sun at the time.

“"They want to remain civil with each other and hope to remain friends. There’s been no funny business, no cheating or anything like that, it’s just fizzled out between them."

It’s thought that Arabella has since moved on with Dutch “playboy” Morad Izemrane, who hit the headlines in his native Holland earlier this year when he was arrested on suspicion of stealing a Rolex watch from an Italian woman in a luxury Ibiza restaurant.
