The I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here! Now! presenter was the subject of speculation after she was pictured in a group including Leonardo DiCaprio.

The 41-year-old star recently added a first Bafta to his Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild statuettes for playing frontiersman Hugh Glass in The Revenant - and is favourite to land his first Oscar next Sunday.

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

"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."

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 she has interviewed include George Clooney, Robert Downey Jr and Justin Bieber.

Whitmore, who is happily in a relationship with British rocker Rory Williams, 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.
