‘They spent time catching up and chatting, people were looking at them and giving them their space.’

MailOnline have contacted Maya and Stormzy’s representatives for comment.

During his performance, Stormzy told the crowd: ‘This is one of the greatest nights of my life. This is my hometown. You lot are my family.

‘As long as I’m here, and as long as I have a career, I will not stop saying ‘thank you’. You lot have changed my life. You’ve changed my family’s life.’

He belted out hit songs such as Vossi Bop and Clash, and was supported by fellow London rapper Nucks, Sampha, US star Kehlani and Ms Banks.

It comes after Maya spoke candidly about her love life as British Vogue’s August cover star.

The presenter  has been in high profile relationships, previously engaged to NBA star Ben Simmons and dating Stormzy.

Her romance with the British rapper in particular drew attention, with fans championing two children from immigrant families and their success story.

Maya, who is half Swedish and half Somali, said of the reaction to her romance with Stormzy, who is of Ghanaian descent: ‘None of us really knew the level of importance it held to a certain group of people, us being together.

‘We were both super ambitious. We were both from similar upbringings and we were both just little grafters that have made something good of ourselves.’

The pair split in 2019 after four years and when questioned about their split, she mused: ‘It was lovely when it was lovely, and then you move.’

Detailing how she copes with break ups, Maya confessed: ‘Yeah, I’ve got that harshness. I don’t want revenge, I just want you to always feel like, “I’m so f**king sad I’ve lost them.” You’re going to miss my presence based on my absence.

‘The best thing you can do is try and do everything that made you happy before you met them.’

During his performance, Stormzy told the crowd: ‘This is one of the greatest nights of my life. This is my hometown. You lot are my family.’

Despite her heartbreak, Maya revealed she hasn’t been put off dating again.

Asked if she still wants love, she revealed: ‘Yeah. Actual love. That’s all I ever want. Just real love. I want a best friend that I’m in love with. And I have had that before.’

Maya is believed to have remained single since she split from fiancé Ben last summer after a year-long romance but has been linked to the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio and Drake .

Yet while she’s open to dating, Maya revealed she won’t be turning to her own show to find The One, laughing off the idea of appearing on Love Island.

‘I would not be able to, at any age, strut out of the house in a bikini in front of men that are judging me based on just one sentence and what I look like,’ she admitted.

‘The confidence of the people that go on! They’ve got a different kind of juice.’

Surprisingly, Maya confessed she didn’t used to get much male attention and ‘was not even considered remotely hot my whole school years’.

As for the public interest in her dating life, Maya revealed she prefers to keep things quiet, noting: ‘I’m not someone that puts all my business out there.

‘I’ve never really offered up my personal life, I’ve just done my job and that’s kind of come with it. So I think I do have a right to keep some bits private.’

As for being in the public eye, she admitted she’s aware she divides opinion, saying: ‘The people that do really like me, I feel like they see a bit of themselves in me.

‘And then the other people are like, “Who the f**k is this bitch and what does she even do?”‘

With being a public figure she finds herself under constant scrutiny and she tries to stay away from social media and the cruel comments it contains.

Maya recalled: ‘I always thought my teeth were all right, never blinked an eye, and then I read a tweet saying, “I really love that Maya’s kept her natural teeth and not fixed them.”

‘My number one rule is don’t look at comments, but I had a relapse. Maybe it’s because you don’t have to show your photo, or you don’t have to show your name, but there is just this huge, huge community of people that are just f**king horrible, horrible people.

‘And they all combine in this little space and they believe everything they read and they think everyone’s disgusting. I got called something like broken home b***h!’

Representation: Maya dated Stormzy for four years until 2019 and when questioned about her break up, she mused, ‘It was lovely when it was lovely, and then you move’

Elsewhere in the chat, Maya revealed the reason she severed ties with her estranged father when she was just 12.

The Love Island host candidly reflected on her relationship with the absent parent, adding that doing so at such a young age has helped her cut others out of her life as an adult.

Hussein Jama, 53, has been in and out of prison all his life and last saw his daughter when she got in touch with him as part of a 2017 documentary on absent fathers called When Dads Kill: Murderer in the Family.

In January, Hussain claimed he hadn’t spoken to Maya since that programme , and pleaded with her to get in touch.

Maya explained that she opted to cut ties with her father from such a young age because she became ‘old enough to gather her own opinion.’

She then added: ‘ Can I ask you a question? One of my really deep friends who goes to therapy said that she thinks the reason why I’m so able to cut off relationships with certain people is because I cut off one with my dad at such a young age.

‘And having that experience is like, if I can cut off my own blood it’s easier to cut off people now as an adult. Do you think that?’

A MailOnline investigation uncovered Hussein’s lengthy prison record, with his first term of two years coming when he was just 17, and he was sent to HMP Portland Young Offender Institution.

While there he says he was abused by inmates, and it set him on a downward spiral which saw him in and out of prison for the next 30 years of his life – and the vital years when Maya and her brother Omar were growing up.

Just after being released from Portland, he met Maya’s mother Sadie, then 19, in a local pub in Montpelier, Bristol.

But violence was never far away and just weeks after they met, Hussein was in court with another man for using a dog as a weapon against three police officers.

Within weeks of being in Bristol, Hussein was in trouble once again – for glassing a man in a city centre pub leaving him with a 3cm cut and he was given 18 months.

It was this attack Maya mentioned during the TV documentary, and which had left her visibly shocked and almost in tears as she said: ‘That’s just so mad to me because you can easily kill someone like that.’

Maya dealt with tragedy in her past, with her boyfriend killed by by a ricocheting bullet meant for someone else during a fight in Bristol.

She was just 16 when her 21-year-old partner Rico Gordon was killed during the summer she was due to move to London to pursue her now flourishing TV career.

Shakah Anderson and Rickel Adams were given life sentences after being found guilty of Rico’s murder in 2012, with a third shooter having never been identified.

Explaining how she dealt with the tragedy, Maya revealed: ‘I don’t like people feeling sorry for me.

‘It’s going to be bad and there’s nothing you can do to not make it bad. But it’s going to be less bad later.’
