A holidaymaker given a fake phone number by a woman while on holiday in Kos was stunned when TV presenter Maya Jama answered the call.

The 26-year-old star, who is currently co-hosting Euro 2020 chat show Crouchy's Year-Late Euros, said the surprise interaction was the "most random phone call ever".

Luke Worley, 28, revealed on Twitter that he had been talking to a girl named Sarah while taking a break on the Greek island, and the pair exchanged phone numbers — but all was not as it seemed.

"The next day I tried calling her and she gave me the wrong number," he added. "Turned out the random number she gave me was Maya Jama. Actually mental."

In order to prove his bizarre story, Worley shared a screenshot of Jama blowing him a kiss on the FaceTime call — and she retweeted his message to confirm it.

Worley told Lad Bible that he ended up speaking to Jama when he and his friends tried to reconnect with Sarah on the day of England's 2-0 victory over Germany in the Euro 2020 round of 16.

"We were in a bar and we were a bit drunk — we'd been drinking all day, as you can imagine — and we tried calling these girls to see where they are," he said.

Worley added: "We had a conversation, we spoke about the show that she's doing at the minute with Crouchy — that's what she was doing, she was getting ready for that.

"She was really nice about it, she couldn't have been any better. A lot of people in the public eye would have probably just put the phone down or something or blocked my number."

Jama had to end the call in order to prepare for her live TV appearance that evening, co-hosting Year-Late Euros with former England player Peter Crouch and comedian Alex Horne.

The show is a sequel to last year's series Peter Crouch: Save Our Summer, which took place during the time in which the European Championships would've originally been played last year.

Jama's media career began when she moved to London in 2012 at the age of 16 and has since taken in multiple jobs in both TV and radio, including fronting the first series of The Circle with Alice Levine.

Between 2015 and 2019, she was in a relationship with the rapper Stormzy.
