Laura Whitmore apparently had “secret talks” with ITV bosses just “hours” after Caroline Flack stepped down from presenting the new series of Love Island.
TV presenter Laura is said to have “had a chat” with bosses about taking over as host of the show.
Laura’s boyfriend is Love Island voiceover man Iain Stirling and she regularly jets out to see him on location during filming.
Now, after both Katie Price and Kerry Katona admitted that they would like the job, Laura surely has to be the favourite to fill Caroline’s shoes.
It’s an amazing job, every TV presenter in Britain wants it, so of course Laura was open to speaking to bosses about it.
An insider told The Sun that Laura was definitely “open” to speaking to show bosses about the role.
They said: “It’s an amazing job, every TV presenter in Britain wants it, so of course Laura was open to speaking to bosses about it.”
They added: “She’s already had a chat about it – as soon as Caroline quit, they needed to sign someone up ASAP.”
The source also revealed that Laura already knows the production crew, thanks to boyfriend Iain.
They revealed: “Laura already knows the production crew from when she goes out to visit Iain on location, and bosses from her previous jobs on ITV.”
Laura and Iain have been dating since 2017.
The Irish TV host is also friends with Caroline Flack, which could make any appointment a little awkward.
