The ‘Love Island’ presenter looks stunning in a black-and-gold body-hugging tube dress as she arrives early at the star-studded BRIT Awards at O2 Arena in London.
AceShowbiz –Maya Jama became one of the first celebrities to arrive early on the red carpet at BRIT Awards 2023 on Saturday, February 11 after she posted a clip of her beauty team spending hours getting her ready for the event. The “Love Island” host, 28, was all smiles in a black and gold dress as she arrived for the event at London’s O2 Arena on Saturday afternoon with other earlier arrivals for the ceremony – which will be broadcast live on ITV from 8.30 P.M. – who included Ashley Roberts, Clara Amfo, and Roman Kemp.
The TV presenter shared a clip of her getting ready for the awards earlier in the day and joked she was a “work in progress” as she was tended to by her hair and make-up team.
Meanwhile, radio 1 DJ Clara, 38, wore a black dress with a dramatic long train and platform high heels, and singer Ashley, 41, wore a flesh-flashing silver dress. Pop star Tallia Storm, 24, also left little to the imagination with a pink bikini outfit.
Comic Mo Gilligan, 34, is returning as The BRIT Awards host for the second year running, with the stand-up saying he is “honoured” to be back for the event. It’s taking place for the first time in the ceremony’s history on a Saturday with Harry Styles, Wet Leg, and Sam Smith leading this year’s nominations.
All three are set to perform during the show, with Lizzo, Becky Hill, Cat Burns, and Stormzy also due to take to the stage. The event has caused controversy after it was revealed there are no females nominated in the Artist of the Year category, which last year underwent a gender-neutral overhaul by scrapping separate male and female categories.
The first gender-neutral award was handed to Adele last year, but in her acceptance speech she pointedly told the audience, “I love being a woman.”
Nominees for Artist of the Year are Central Cee, Fred again…, George Ezra, Harry Styles, and Stormzy, who are both, along with Fred again… – real name Fred Gibson – also up for Album of the Year alongside The 1975 and Wet Leg, who are the only female act in the category.
The Song of the Year category will see Aitch with “Baby” featuring Ashanti, Cat Burns with “Go”, Dave with “Starlight”, and Ed Sheeran and Sir Elton John with their festive hit “Merry Christmas” battle it out for an award.
