The presenter said: “I turned 16 and I met a guy. He was killed in the summer I had to move to London – and he was my first love.

“Then your whole world just changes because you’re a little girl and you realize, ‘Okay, this is adult stuff going on.’ I was devastated, I was so sad.”

Maya, who dated rapper Stormzy for four years, also burst into tears after telling her father Hussein that he went to jail for bottling a man.

She continued: “I had a situation where my dad was in and out of jail by three. At the time, I didn’t think it bothered me. I just knew it was normal. “

Forced to smile, the 27-year-old continues: “I don’t like crying about that stuff. I have to laugh or I get emotional.

“I’m fine now, but obviously I’m sad for my younger, younger self that I had to deal with.

“I’m glad I made a good situation out of some bad guys.”

Maya opens her heart to Fox’s Fearless 48 Hours, which airs tonight on Channel 4.

New heights for Maya

On tonight’s show SAS: Who Dare Vince Hardman, 45-year-old Jason Fox, trains Maya for bungee jumps and abseils.

She said on Sunday: “The fox is incredible and I’m so glad I did it – but it’s honestly one of the most nerve-racking things I’ve ever done.”
