Maya Jama already has telly presenter, radio DJ, model and hilarious insta-story-er on her impressive CV and now the 23-year-old has her sights set even higher - and it involves the Tango!

Yep, Stormzy's girlfriend is being lined up to appear on this year's Strictly Come Dancing and it's thought her relationship with the rapper will bring in a younger audience.

Maya and stormzy

A TV source told The Sun: “Maya would be a great contestant on the show – she looks incredible, loves music and is already a big fan of the series.

“She’s had a busy start to the year after presenting at The Brits and landing a presenting slot at Radio One – and she doesn’t want to slow down.

Bink's red carpet debut is miles away from her current aesthetic - which is very 'glowy, yummy mummy who is perennially sipping kale juice'.

Yeah sure, 'Cheryl full stop' is happy and living 'in a bubble of love', but Cheryl Tweedy had STYLE. Those hoop earrings and flesh-baring mini dress? We are so into it.

A young J-Law used to have a penchant for waist-clinching belts and shirt dresses. Very Gok Wan, if we say so ourselves.

Kendall and Kylie have always been a fan of matching their red carpet assembles -* even* if it is cropped waistcoats and neon pink tights. Kudos to the bravery, girls.

Maya has previously gushed about the BBC 1 show and admitted she would love to be a contestant.

She said, “Strictly Come Dancing is amazing.

“I used to dance when I was younger for like a couple of years when I was about ten and I haven’t done any structured or routine dance since – well except when I’m in a club.
