Poor Maya Jama is recovering at home after suffering food poisoning having eaten some ‘posh raw tuna s**t’ which made her physically ill, forcing her to drop out of the 2021 TV Baftas.
The TV star shared on Instagram that she had been vomiting all day and felt ‘sad’ not to attend the bash at London’s Television Centre where she was due to present an award.
The 26-year-old already had her red carpet outfit picked out to hang with the stars, such as Oti Mabuse and Michaela Coel, on the night to celebrate the best and brightest in British TV.
Sadly she is no longer able to wear it but vowed to stick it on to go to the shops in order to cheer herself up. Get your money’s worth, Maya!
The radio presenter wrote on Instagram on Sunday: ‘So saddddd I won’t be at the Baftas today,’ she wrote on her Instagram Story.
‘I ate that posh raw tuna s**t and have been [sick] all day. Was supposed to wear the dress of dreams also I might have to wear it to the shop next week to feel better.’ She also added a vomit emoji and three face palm emoji to hammer the point home.
