Maya was forced to delete a March Instagram post of herself wearing a fluorescent tracksuit after it prompted speculation that she and Ben were an item.

The raven-haired beauty was snapped later in the day wearing the same outfit while out shopping with Ben.

It’s not the first time the pair have been linked.

In 2019, Maya caught Ben’s eye after posting a sexy Halloween snap on Instagram, beneath which the athlete left two fire emojis.

Ben was last linked to KUWTK star Kendall Jenner. The pair called it off in May 2019 after months of dating on-and-off.

Meanwhile, Maya confirmed her split from Vossi Bop rapper Stormzy that same year.

The notoriously private couple dated for four years but were said to have ended their relationship in order to focus on their careers.

Maya and Stormzy first went public with their romance in 2016 after initially keeping their relationship private. 

After their split, Maya revealed she is not on any dating apps or looking for a new flame.

Speaking on The Jonathan Ross Show, she said: ‘I’m not on the hunt. I’m not on any apps, basically. No, I’m not prowling. I’m just living my life. [I’ve just bought my first house] it’s really exciting.

‘I’m trying to make it into MTV Cribs… I want to get a pole from my bedroom down to my front room, that’s part of my plan… Single life is good. I’m just working.’

Since splitting, Maya has been candid about not wanting to jump back into the dating game, even saying she is ‘scared to date’.

In an interview with the Evening Standard magazine, she said: ‘I’m scared to date. I haven’t been single in so long, how the f*** do you flirt any more?!’

Maya noted: ‘I live on my own now. Solo b***h. I’ve got this little [flat] that reminds me of a Sex and the City apartment. But without the sex.’
