Wearing the same red dress that wowed fans on tonight’s show, she appeared outside the Love Island villa in a video.

Maya, 28, said: “Guys, I have some very, very exciting news.

“The Love Island final is going to be on – drumroll please – Monday 13 March on ITV2 and ITVX.

“It’s going to be major, you don’t want to miss it. I will see you then!”

The move means there are just days left to cram in show favourite features such as the Meet The Parents day.

A source told The Sun last month that TV bosses had decided to give Love Island the full eight-week treatment.

They said: “There was speculation that the current series might only run for six weeks as that was the format for the first Winter Love Island outing in 2020. 

“By the same token, there was talk last year that the summer series could be extended as ratings were so impressive thanks to the likes of Ekin-Su and Davide.

“But bosses plan to stick to their usual eight week schedule and crown their winners on March 13th.”

Fans were split over whether it was the right time to wrap things up, with one writing: “This has came around quick!!”

However another replied: “I feel like i’ve been watching this season for an entire lifetime.”

Love Island returns to ITV2 and ITVX at 9pm
