Love Island's host just had to set the record straight on her astrological sign and her love life—but what star sign is Maya Jama exactly and what does it have to do with Maya's boyfriend sitch?

While we know astrological compatibility can be very important when it comes to relationships, it seems some news publications have gotten the wrong end of the stick when it comes to Maya's star sign and those Leonardo DiCaprio dating rumors...

For anyone who doesn't know, along with reports that Leonardo DiCaprio and Gigi Hadid are supposedly seeing each other, Maya has also been linked to the Hollywood actor lately. However, the TV presenter just shut down those rumors in the most iconic way, after it was reported that she wore a nod to Leo around her neck during her latest vacay...do you see where we're going with this yet?

What star sign is Maya Jama?

It will now likely come as no surprise when we reveal that Maya Jama's star sign is Leo.

Yes, Maya Jama's birthday is August 14, making her a Leo, (P.S. Leo season is set to strike mid-way through summer Love Island 2023!) hence why she would be wearing a Leo necklace because of her star sign—as opposed to publicly declaring her relationship with Leonardo.

The TV presenter addressed this on Monday, April 10 after the Daily Mail published a story referencing her Leo necklace and those recent Leonardo DiCaprio sightings—where the pair were seen leaving a club in Paris together, alongside friends. 

Maya retweeted the article and shut down the dating rumors, writing: "I’ve been minding my business on holiday & said I wouldn’t respond/pay attention to any of the silly stories anymore but you need to stop now, that is literally my star sign. We are not dating. Move on please."

Leo is one of the three fire signs, along with Aries and Sagittarius. Coincidentally, fellow Love Island star, Millie Court also famously wore a Sagittarius necklace during her time in the villa. 

This also isn't the first time Maya has referenced her sign in her fits. In fact, several of Maya Jama's Love Island outfits were star sign-themed, including that incredible astrology jumpsuit from the promo.

Fans also reckon her fire sign has been referenced in a number of her ex, Stormzy's recent tracks, including the song 'Firebabe'—one of the many Stormzy songs about their relationship.

So, while her latest Leo accessory hasn't shed any light on her current dating sitch, it has given us a few gift ideas for all the Leos in our lives...
