Maya is said to be naming the series Cling Cling – after her catchphrase “Cling Cling muthaf***ers,” which proved to be a hit with her fans.

A source told The Sun: “Maya is preparing to launch a range of soft drinks, hopefully in time for the summer.

“She’s both a savvy businesswoman and a great TV presenter.

“Maya’s rising popularity is great for their brands and the soft drinks would be perfect.

“She has her hand in many pies and is skillfully building her empire.”

Maya – who has over 2.6million Instagram followers – has previously launched merchandise with her slogan Cling Cling.

In 2019, she launched a range of t-shirts and hoodies featuring various designs of the slogan – and brought them back the following year, with proceeds from sales going to Black Lives Matter and feminist action group Sisters Uncut.

As well as her new drink range in the works, Maya has also trademarked the word ‘Tringe’ for a set of clip-on fringes.

This comes after Maya’s hugely successful debut as the new presenter of Love Island.

Love Island bosses are reportedly keen on tying host Maya in a “multi-series deal” after she impressed with her debut.

And following her success in her first appearance after replacing former presenter Laura Whitmore, it has been suggested that producers plan to keep her on the show for a while as she “is now a huge TV force to be with you have to calculate”.

Industry expert Jonathan Shalit commented, “Maya is simply amazing – a true star and a household name now. She has fully embraced the role of Love Island presenter and has proven herself to be an A-list global star.

“She’s a huge TV force to be reckoned with now.”

They added: “You’d have to be living under a rock to have missed a photo of Maya in that black dress yesterday and it’s sure to captivate those who previously only had a casual interest. One thing is certain: there will already be many urgent talks about a contract extension.”

Meanwhile, a source added to the publication that the “electric” launch was stuff “a marketer’s dreams are made of” and will no doubt see plenty of people rushing to catch up with the ITV2 show.

It comes as viewers were disappointed after Maya was absent from the second episode of the series on Tuesday – declaring the series “boring” without her.

While the Singletons struggled in their first challenge, Maya jetted back to London before returning to South Africa later that week.

On Twitter, a fan lamented: “Where was Maya Jama tonight, I missed her”.

Another wrote: “Can we have a love island where there are no contestants just an hour maya jama being maya jama please.”

While a third tweeted: “this is so boring where is maya jama”.
