Maya Jama has reportedly split from her fiancé Ben Simmons after a whirlwind romance and six month engagement.

The much-loved TV presenter confirmed her engagement to her basketball player hunk Ben earlier this year, with the news first circulating in January.

Reports now say that she called time on their relationship last month (July 2022) – six months after they confirmed their engagement.

The Sun on Sunday reports that "things came to a head last month" with a source saying that it's "heart-breaking" for both of them.

Despite the pair being "so committed to each other", the source says that the reasoning behind their split said to be because they are both "young" and wanting to "focus on their careers".

This came after Maya was reportedly seen without her engagement ring this week.

Reports began swirling in January when it was claimed that Ben, 26, proposed to Maya, 27, over the Christmas period in 2021.

The engagement came after the Brit Awards star spent Christmas at the Ben's £3.7 million mansion in Moorestown, New Jersey.

In February Maya could be seen sporting the huge rock that Ben proposed with, that was allegedly worth hundreds of thousands of pounds.

It is estimated that her engagement ring was worth around £700,000, after multiple news outlets reported it.
