‘I’m obsessed with make-up!’ Maya Jama replaces Stacey Dooley as the host of BBC Three’s Glow Up

Maya Jama has been announced as the host of BBC Three’s Glow Up: Britain’s Next Make Up Star.

The show returns for a third season later this year and Maya will replace Stacey Dooley, who fronted the series for two previous runs.

Maya, 26, said of the appointment: ‘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 [Make Up Artists] get up to!’

Industry icons 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.

Stacey, 33, announced in October that she would be leaving as host.

She tweeted: ‘I won’t be able to be a part of Glow Up, series 3. It was such an utter delight to work alongside Dom and Val. Total stars. 

‘And of course, a real treat to meet the artists, and appreciate their creativity! It’s a show v close to my heart, and I wish everyone involved in the next gig, all the love in the world.’ [sic]

It’s understood signing on to host new show This Is MY House led to Stacey being unable to front season three of Glow Up.

Her new show – set to air this year – sees four people declare a property is theirs, but only one of them is telling the truth.

A team of celebrity judges will work together to figure out who is the honest homeowner and who are the imposters.

Maya, 26, said of the appointment: '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 [Make Up Artists] get up to!'

When she announced the new show, and her subsequent departure from Glow Up, trolls hit out at Stacey on Twitter for ditching one to front the other.

She replied to some of the comments, saying: ‘Reading some of the unnecessarily cruel comments re my new gig. I got the same criticism doing Strictly and Glow Up.

‘I did well on Strictly and Glow Up went on to be a global series, that was recommissioned and Netflix took. I don’t know why this platform is so unkind.’ [sic]

Meanwhile, Maya will be adding Glow Up to her CV of hosting gigs, which already includes a show on BBC Radio 1, the MOBO Awards, Stand Up To Cancer, and Save Our Summer with Peter Crouch. 

Some of the most revered names in the beauty and fashion industry have also appeared on the show, from Rankin, Henry Holland and Andrew Gallimore through to NikkieTutorials, Anastasia Soare and Lisa Armstrong.

Glow Up series three will be available to stream in the UK exclusively on BBC iPlayer later this year.
