Maya Jama is reportedly wanted by Channel 4 to host The Big Breakfast's one-off comeback alongside Mo Gilligan.

Former Radio 1 DJ Maya Jama is reportedly wanted by Channel 4 for the upcoming reboot of The Big Breakfast.

The iconic breakfast show is returning after almost two decades for a one-off special on September 10 as part of Channel 4's 'Black To Front' Day, where all programming will be made by and fronted by black talent.

Comedian Mo Gilligan has already been named as a host of the show's return, and according to The Sun, C4 want Jama and Clara Amfo to join him.

"Maya would be the perfect fit to feature on The Big Breakfast reboot and Channel 4 has her firmly in its sights," a source told the newspaper.

"She is on its wish list of black female talent, along with Strictly star and broadcaster Clara Amfo.

"Maya is incredibly busy but Channel 4 is hoping she'll be able to make room in her diary to be a part of the show, which bosses think is going to be a roaring success when it airs on September 10."

The Big Breakfast originally aired on C4 between 1992 and 2002 with presenters including Chris Evans, Gaby Roslin, Denise van Outen and Johnny Vaughan.
