Maya previously dated rapper Stormzy for four years, with the pair splitting the same year – ending their relationship in order to focus on their careers instead.

But on Monday, Lucien was seen holding hands with Game Of Thrones star Hannah John-Kamen, 32, while leaving the British Fashion Awards at the Royal Albert Hall.
The actor appeared very comfortable in the company of the actress as they made a low-key exit from the London venue, just hours before he got close with another actress, Wallis Day, at the afterparty.
It comes after pals close to Jesy told MailOnline the singer is ’embarrassed’ by the photographs of herself and Lucien, and insists she’s ‘single’ – despite being spotted with on-off boyfriend Harry James last month.

Emily In Paris actor Lucien dated Jesy’s ex Little Mix bandmate Leigh-Anne Pinnock, 30, in 2012 before she settled down with fiancé Andre Gray, also 30, and welcomed twins this year.
A source said: ‘Jesy and Lucien met up on a night out after two friendship groups came together and took a rickshaw to the club but left separately.
‘She was letting her hair down on a Saturday night and is embarrassed her flirtation with Lucien has come to light – but there is nothing more between them.

‘Her relationship with Harry may have ended but they remain good friends and continue to work together and he’s now with a new partner. Jesy insists herself and Lucien didn’t kiss even though they looked close in the pictures.’
MailOnline understands Jesy went back to her Essex home alone and herself and Lucien have no plans to meet up in the future.
MailOnline contacted Jesy and Lucien’s representatives for comment at the time.
