Maya Jama has joined 'Celebrity Juice' as a regular panellist.
The 26-year-old TV presenter will appear on the 25th series of the ITV2 show in April alongside host Keith Lemon and team captains Emily Atack and Laura Whitmore.
Maya – who has joined as a regular panellist after numerous appearances in the last series – said: "I never have any idea quite what’s going to unfold on 'Celeb Juice', but I do know it’s always going to be hilarious and super fun.
"It’s a show I dreamed about going on when I was growing up and so I’m beyond thrilled to become a regular on the show and be given the opportunity to share the panel with some of my favourite people. Bang Tidy."
This comes after Maya recently admitted she would love to "go off grid" for several months, but also "do lots of work things".
She said: "I just want to escape for a year if we’re allowed to and go off the grid.
"But I still want to do lots of work things, so it’s about getting the balance right.
"I plan on taking at least a couple of months off and running away to somewhere like Brazil and coming off social media."
Emily previously replaced Holly Willoughby on the show, and admitted it was "the most ridiculous and daunting path" stepping into her shoes.
She said: "Everything I’m doing now is kind of my dream job. And I would say 'Celebrity Juice' is a real pinnacle moment for me, because it’s one of the bigger shows on television.
"Stepping into shoes like Holly Willoughby’s is the most ridiculous and daunting path as a telly person.
"It’s like, 'How on earth will I fill shoes like that?!' But I’m just so humbled and flattered, and I’m glad to be doing the show with Laura, she’s my really good friend."
