Celebrity Juice has found a new regular panellist in Maya Jama.

It's been announced that the former BBC Radio 1 presenter will join team captains Emily Atack and Laura Whitmore for the upcoming 25th series – presided over by the madman that is Keith Lemon once again.

Gino D'Acampo previously filled this position on the panel.

In a statement, Maya shared her excitement over joining the comedy show: "I never have any idea quite what's going to unfold on Celeb Juice, but I do know it's always going to be hilarious and super fun.

"It's a show I dreamed about going on when I was growing up and so I'm beyond thrilled to become a regular on the show and be given the opportunity to share the panel with some of my favourite people. Bang Tidy!"

Over the past 12 months, the 26-year-old has built herself an impressive CV up on screen, including an acting role in Netflix's The Duchess and a guest judging spot on RuPaul's Drag Race UK.

In other Juice news, Atack recently admitted that she was initially 'daunted' by replacing long-serving star Holly Willoughby.

"Stepping into shoes like Holly Willoughby's is the most ridiculous and daunting path as a telly person. It's like, 'How on Earth will I fill shoes like that?!" she said while speaking to Radio Times.

Celebrity Juice returns in April on ITV2.
