Maya Jama and Jack Whitehall are teaming up for new show ‘Live Italian’.

The ‘Love Island’ host, 28, and the ‘Jungle Cruise’ star, 34, are joining forces for the three-part Amazon Prime Video series - that will also include rugby legend Lawrence Dallaglio, 50.

It will showcase their journey to find out "what it truly means to live like an Italian", with each episode set to follow one of the three celebs as they explore a different region of Italy to see “the very best food, music and sport”.

In the first installment, Jack will go on a foodie’s expedition of Tuscany with television presenter and blogger Chiara Maci.

The ‘Bad Education’ star will see how gelato is made, along with pasta from a “gaggle of nonnas”.

He said: "Whilst I like to think that I'm always pretty easy-going, as someone that doesn't like to sit still, the reality is life's a bit chaotic.

"So, who better to learn how to relax and enjoy life's simple pleasures than those famed for their love of long lunches, indulgent, simple dishes and riposo's? 'Live Italian' was an inspiring and, at times, 'interesting' adventure, where I learnt how to disconnect and find pleasure in the smallest of things."

In the second episode of the series - which will be available on the streaming service on March 10 - Maya will go along with actress, singer and presenter Lodovica Comello as they look into the impact of music on Italian culture in the cities of Milan and Cremona.

The last act will see Lawrence - who was part of the 2003 England World Cup-winning squad along with Jonny Wilkinson - meet up with Martin Castrogiovanni, an icon of Italian rugby, to go up against each other in a series of sporting trials.
