Laura Whitmore lifts lid on antics at Baftas after-party


Television presenter Laura Whitmore has said the guests at the Bafta after-party, including winner Leonardo DiCaprio, had “fun”.

The I’m A Celebrity … Get Me Out Of Here! Now! presenter sparked speculation in the press about her association with the Titanic star after they were pictured together.

Hollywood heartthrob DiCaprio is cleaning up this awards season.

He recently added a first Bafta win to his Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild statuette for playing frontiersman Hugh Glass in The Revenant.

The 41-year-old is favourite to land his first ever Oscar when the Academy Awards take place on February 28.

During an exclusive interview with Hello! magazine, 30-year-old Whitmore refused to comment on the reports linking her to DiCaprio.

“Everyone was just having fun – there was a lot of dancing,” she said.

However, Whitmore did open up to the magazine on the subject of the qualities she is looking for when it comes to finding her ideal man.

A sense of humour is high on her list.

“Someone who can make me laugh and with whom I can have fun,” she told Hello! “I love banter so someone who can keep me on my toes. I don’t mind having a few arguments.

“I’m not interested in big, over-the-top gestures but little things, like I’ll keep the ticket stubs from a gig I was at, or a T-shirt.”

Born in Wicklow, Whitmore beat 3,000 hopefuls to land a job at MTV in 2008.

She has worked on I’m A Celebrity’s ITV2 sister show since 2011 and the stars sh e has interviewed include George Clooney, Robert Downey Jr and Justin Bieber.

Whitmore will host a surprise leap-year proposal from a woman to her boyfriend during an advert break on ITV later this month.

When asked if she would pop the question herself if the situation arose, she said “It depends”.

“If he wasn’t asking and I wanted to get married, I’d be like, ‘Hey, let’s do this.’ I don’t see why not in this day and age. Girl power and all that.”
