The TV host, 28, looked incredible in a little black dress featuring cutout details during Monday’s series premiere as she strutted into the South African villa in a slow-mo clip.
And taking to Twitter following her sizzling entrance, fans branded the rapper, 29, a ‘silly silly man’ for letting her go while questioning how he sleeps at night.

The brand new series of Love Island kicked off on Monday evening and new host Maya certainly made an impression.
She even related to the new singletons as she joked about her own relationship struggles on the first episode.
The beauty brought up her past as she addressed the new islands.
She quipped: ‘Don’t forget, finding your perfect match is never that simple – trust me, I know.’
‘Finding your perfect match is never that simple’: The beauty, who has previously dated hitmaker rapper Stormzy, brought up her past as she addressed the new islands (pictured in 2017)
Maya and Stormzy dated for four years from 2015 to 2019 and while it’s been rumoured they had rekindled their romance, she insisted she’s ‘really, really single’.
It comes after Stormzy previously admitted that he blames himself for his split from the brunette beauty.
Despite this, the chart-topping rap star believes that the experience actually helped him to ‘grow up’.
In an episode of the BBC’s Louis Theroux Interviews, the Vossi Bop hitmaker said: ‘My break-up, that was probably the biggest catalyst for growth as a man.
‘It was like, OK, you made a mistake and you lose someone you loved, someone you cared for, someone who is special to you.
‘That’s probably the biggest loss a man can have, isn’t it? Away from someone passing away, that’s the biggest loss you can have.’
During Love Island, Maya, who made her villa bow after replacing Laura Whitmore, introduced the ten new contestants to each other, and they were asked to couple up.
Ellie Spence, 25, and 23-year-old sportsman Tom Clare went head-to-head to earn a place in the villa. But it was the semi-pro footballer who was ultimately handed the opportunity.
Exciting: Maya made quite the impression on the show leaving fans stunned as she strutted her stuff in a figure hugging number entering the villa
Tom will now have 24 hours to get to know the girls, before he has to choose one of them.
She left little to the imagination as the dress reached her thigh – where it featured a slit going down her leg.
Maya also added inches to her incredible frame in a pair of strappy heels.

She won unanimous praise from viewers as she arrived in a sweeping gown with a plunging detail that enhanced her cleavage.
Viewers were quick to take to Twitter to joke ‘step forward if you fancy Maya Jama’ as she stole the show.
Others added: ‘Maya Jama outshining the female contestants, fancy going in and having to stand next to her’.
‘Maya Jama slaying as always,’ a third wrote.
