Leomie Anderson has replaced Maya Jama as the new presenter of 'Glow Up: Britain’s Next Make-Up Star'.

The 29-year-old supermodel will take the reins for the fifth series of the BBC Three show - in which 10 amateur make-up artists battle to be crowned Britain’s Next Make-Up Star - when it returns later this year.

Leomie said: "I am so excited to be joining 'Glow Up' as the host as it’s such an incredible show!

"I have always been a huge fan and admire all the MUAs work who have been in there previously so to see it in real life is amazing.

"I can’t wait to work alongside the fabulous Val and Dom in a completely new territory too outside of modelling and get truly stuck in!"

Each episode follows the contestants diving into the many varied worlds a make-up artist’s work will take them.

In series five, the hopefuls will work on the set of Netflix drama series 'Bridgerton'.

Melissa Brown, Wall to Wall Executive Producer, said: "We are over the moon to have Leomie Anderson join 'Glow Up'.

"Now in our fifth series, we are set to return bigger and better than ever, and it is an absolute joy to have Leomie now at the helm. I’m sure she will be a hit with viewers as much as she is with us."

Earlier this week, it was revealed Maya would not return as the host of 'Glow Up'.

The 'Love Island' presenter took over hosting duties on the show from Stacey Dooley for the third and fourth series.

An insider said: "Maya loved her time hosting 'Glow Up' for the last two series but has decided now not to return for another run.

"It was a really difficult decision but she's going to be really busy doing two series of Love Island this year, and couldn't make it work."
