Their steamy kiss at the annual tournament comes after last month it was revealed Maya had 'flewn out to Philadelphia' to spend time with her beau, Ben.

In 2019, Maya caught Ben's eye after posting a sexy Halloween snap on Instagram, where he left two fire emojis in the comment section.

In May, Maya uploaded to her Instagram where she is seen sitting on a countertop holding a wine glass in a fancy huge kitchen that was said to belong to Ben.

Last month, on Jun 12, Simmons shocked fans when he shared a screenshot of his FaceTime call with the 26-year-old TV presenter. The snap fuelled more dating rumours.
