Maya Jama reveals she's landed her first movie role after missing out on a part in Skins when she was a teenager

Maya Jama has revealed she's landed her first movie role during this week's Sunday Brunch.

The broadcaster, 26, explained how she was scheduled to start filming for the top-secret project in April, but was unable to kick off production due to the coronavirus pandemic.

DJ Maya, who has become one of the most recognised presenters in the UK, surprised hosts Tim Lovejoy and Simon Rimmer when she said she missed out on a part in E4's Skins months before she moved from Bristol to London as a teenager.

Teasing details behind about her upcoming portrayal as a 'shy girl', the TV and radio star said: 'I am supposed to be doing a film but because of Covid everything has been pushed back.


'It was supposed to be in April then it got moved to the next month, next month, and now fingers crossed February. 

'It’s secret-y at the moment but I am playing somebody really shy that’s the opposite to me and it’s in the Caribbean, so that’s why it can’t go ahead. So those are my two clues but I don’t know if I am allowed to give out anything else.

'As a presenter you spend so much time just being yourself and coming across as yourself on camera, transitioning into acting, it’s like, ''Now be someone just completely different,'' which is really hard.
