Maya Jama seated in front of photo of her ex Stormzy

As is tradition (although they were socially distanced this year), the celebrity guests on The Big Fat Quiz Of The Year were sat in front of a collage of the most talked-about celebrities and public figures of the year. However, viewers spotted that radio presenter Jama had been seated in front of a huge photo of her ex-partner, Stormzy, whom she dated for four years.
