Maya’s previous high-profile relationships have included rapper Stormzy, 29,  NBA star Ben Simmons, 26, and she has recently been rumoured to be dating Hollywood star, Leonardo Dicaprio, 48.

The former Radio DJ has been distracting herself with her flourishing career prospects instead of updating fans amidst the ongoing gossip.

Maya captioned the post:  “Hardly been on my phone. Some exciting work things happened.”

“Felt 0 need to scroll online and no urge to post. I’ve been having a lovely time with no photo evidence (until later),” she added.

Maya shared a clip dancing in a mirror as she showcased her holiday glow, wearing a white crop-top and black sporty shorts.

A few weeks later, the Love Island host travelled to New York for a work trip, where she allegedly also met up with Leonardo again.

An insider told The Sun that Leonardo and Maya were in regular contact, but were not "rushing into anything" and were "having fun and seeing how things go".

The source continued: "They live in different countries and Maya has had a long-distance relationship before and knows it’s tough, so they are taking things a day at a time. Leo has certainly been wooing her though, he loves spending time with her."

Maya has since slammed the rumours, calling them “silly” and telling people to “Move on.” Leo has been linked to several women, following his break up with American model and actress, Camila Morrone, 25, last year.
