Maya Jama is understood to have stepped down as presenter of BBC Three's make-up competition Glow Up, according to reports from The Sun.

Maya Jama has reportedly left the show in favour of the main presenting gig on ITV2's Love Island and Love Island Aftersun. The BBC have not yet announced a replacement for Maya, though it's understood that filming has already started on the new series. TV Zone approached the BBC for comment.

The battle of the brushes recommences later this year on BBC Three and BBC iPlayer, as 10 aspiring Make Up Artists (MUAs) are each week set one real-world Professional Assignment, as well as a themed Creative Brief at Glow Up HQ.

The two MUAs who fail to impress judges Val Garland and Dominic Skinner then enter the elimination Face Off round, going head to head in a make-up skill drill on identical twins, before one is sent packing and heads home - leaving the competition for good.

After eight weeks, the last MUA standing wins a contract assisting some of the world’s top make up artists and is crowned Britain’s Next Make Up Star.

Previous series of Glow Up are available on BBC iPlayer. More details about the new series will be revealed in due course.
