Maya oozed confidence as she strut through the corridors of the ITV studios and wiggled her bum after a very successful show. 

She looked incredible, opting for a bold hot pink dress with a daring cutout that showed some serious skin – in what is her latest raciest wardrobe choice. 

Her toned stomach was on full display in the revealing off-the-shoulder number, which she paired with matching pink high heels.

Maya’s first time fronting Aftersun proved to be a roaring success as initial ratings reported a peak of 1.82million tuning into the show – compared to the 1.51million watching Love Island. 

‘Spin-off shows are certainly not meant to be the main event. They sit alongside the main show to make use of extra footage, steer narrative or ramp up noise around a programme,’ a source told The Sun.

‘So no one ever expects the sister show to exceed the main show in figures. Maya is proving to be the shot in the arm Love Island really needs right now.’

MailOnline have contacted ITV for comment.

Maya is currently winning in the TV world as Love Island bosses granted her 50 percent more airtime than previous host Laura, 37.

After just four episodes, Maya had already been featured in the hit TV show for 19 minutes and 55 seconds. 

In the same episode of the last series, Laura had only clocked up 13 minutes and 26 seconds.

Debates over the host’s timeframes on set have been about since Caroline Flack, 40, first began presenting Love Island in 2015.

Laura’s husband, Iain Stirling, 34, even made a joke during the Love Island series.

And during episode one, Iain could be heard on the voiceover cracking a joke by saying, ‘She could’ve just sent a text, but we wanted to get our money’s worth out of that return flight to Cape Town.’

And Maya doesn’t plan to stop there because, according to The Sun, Maya has said she intends to visit the new South African villa as often as she possibly can.

However, she has also stated that she will be in London each Sunday to present Love Island’s spin-off show Aftersun.

Maya became the host of this year’s Love Island after Laura quit the show just after three series due to the struggle of the travelling hours now that she is a new mum.

It’s been suggested that producers plan to keep Maya on the show for a while as she’s ‘now a major TV force to be reckoned with’.

Industry expert Jonathan Shalit explained to Daily Mail: ‘Maya is quite simply fantastic – a true star and now a household name.

‘She has nailed the role of Love Island host totally and shown herself to be a world A-list star. 

‘She is now a major TV force to be reckoned with.’

Meanwhile, a source added that the ‘electric’ launch was stuff that ‘a marketeer’s dreams are made of’ and will no doubt see plenty of people rushing to watch the ITV2 show on catch-up.

Ex-host: After just four episodes, Maya had already been featured in the hit TV show for 19 minutes. In the same episode of the last series, Laura had only clocked up 13 minutes
