The 26-year-old television and radio presenter is believed to have struck up a romance with the 24-year-old basketball star, who was previously in a relationship with Kendall Jenner in 2019.

According to sources, Maya flew to Philadelphia where Ben players for the 76ers basketball team earlier this year and spent time with her new beau, who has been making his feelings known publicly by leaving likes on Maya’s social media posts.

An insider told the Sunday Mirror newspaper’s Watts the Goss column: “Things are hotting up for Maya and Ben. They are really into each other and the fact she flew to Philadelphia to be with him says a lot. They had a fun two weeks together. It's nice to see her so happy."

For Maya, the romance comes after she split from Stormzy in 2019.

The beauty previously said she's "been through worse" than their break-up, and admitted she's found a "new lease of excitement" since the split.

She said: "I was in a relationship for nearly five years and I've had a new lease of excitement. I don't allow myself to be down in the dumps about things that are out of my control like my break-up.

"I'm one of those hard, nutty people - I've been through worse. It's all about keeping it moving and having stuff to look forward to.

"I know myself now and I'm happy with myself. People's opinions don't affect me as much. I want to use this time to spend with my friends and have loads of fun girl trips."

Maya also insisted she doesn’t mind if the 27-year-old rapper uses their relationship and their split to inspire his music.

She added: "I feel that going out with an artist, you kind of sign an invisible contract where it's like, 'This is this, it's everybody's business.' "
