The couple responded to rumours that they had called off their engagement and are no longer in a relationship.

Maya Jama and her fiancé Ben Simmons put rumours of their breakup to rest after the NBA player shared a snap of the couple to Instagram.

Last week a source claimed that the pair's relationship had fallen apart after Maya wanted to focus on her career.

The NBA took to his Instagram stories to prove that the pair are still an item, and shared a black and white snap of the loved-up pair.

This possibly refers to the television presenter's birthday, which is this weekend (14 August).

Maya also denied the breakup rumours, which were alleged by The Sun last week that the presenter wanted to focus on her career.
