It’s been confirmed that Maya Jama will appear as a regular panellist on the upcoming 25th series of Celebrity Juice. The 26-year-old former Radio 1 DJ and presenter of The Circle will be taking up the role on the long-running ITV2 show that was previously held by Rufus Hound and Gino D’Acampo.
Talkback, the production company behind the long-running show, revealed she’d been cast after impressing in previous episodes. They said:
TV presenter Maya will become a regular guest on the panel after multiple appearances in the last series in which she threw herself into everything Keith asked of her.

Maya said in a statement:
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!
