MAYA JAMA ANNOUNCED AS NEW HOST OF BBC THREE'S GLOW UP

Former Radio 1 DJ Maya Jama is to front the third series of the BBC Three competition series.



Val Garland and Dominic Skinner will also return as series judges, on hand to whittle ten budding Make Up Artists (MUAs) one by one, before discovering Britain’s Next Make Up Star.


Maya Jama says: "I absolutely LOVE Glow Up and can’t wait to join the family! I’m obsessed with makeup and creating different looks- it’s going to be so much fun and I can’t wait to see what the MUAs get up to."


Fiona Campbell, Controller of BBC Three, says: “It’s brilliant to welcome Maya to the BBC Three family for Glow Up - a show we really love which continues to grow in popularity. She is an ideal choice as the new host with a longstanding interest and passion for the industry and we can’t wait to see what she brings to the new series.”


Melissa Brown, Wall To Wall Executive Producer, says: “We’re hugely excited to welcome Maya. She brings with her bundles of energy, lots of fun and a genuine interest in the world of make-up. Series three will build on the massive success of series two with an incredible cast and exciting challenges, with access to the world’s biggest film sets and brands.”


Series three will be available to stream on BBC iPlayer later this year.
