She said: ‘I was in a relationship for nearly five years and I’ve had a new lease of excitement.

The star also revealed she wants to forge a career in acting and was due to perform in her first film before plans were derailed by lockdown.

She admitted: ‘I used to pray, “Can I grow t**s?” and I grew them. So I thought, “Oh my gosh — he’s listening”.’
On the podcast, Maya also revealed that she had serious money troubles when she was a student in London before she made it.
The star, who has recently bought a new house, said she used to jump on trains without a ticket and wear outfits before returning them to the shops.
Last month, the TV and radio star hit back at fans who ‘hyper sexualised’ her body after she wore a plunging dress on the show.
The broadcaster took to her social media platform after one viewer admitted to feeling ‘awkward’ at seeing her cleavage on display.
Maya wrote: ‘I appreciate your concern. I am able and allowed to dress how I please. We’re all fighting for equality and similar treatment to our male counterparts.
‘Don’t let the side down by hyper sexualising my bod. If you’re uncomfortable with my boobs that’s on you.’

The media personality also shamed a troll who called her ‘ridiculously obese’ as she said ‘please focus on your own vitamin intake’.
The radio presenter, who has been co-hosting the show with former footballer Peter and Alex Horne, told her followers: ‘Sometimes I retweet trolls not for sympathy or for you guys to get at them but just to remind you that people are MAD on here…
‘And more time if someones gone out the way to be mean to a stranger unprovoked it’s a reflection on them not you, i laugh at it now cause I’m used to it’. (sic)
