The 30-year-old tv presenter attended the NME Awards on Wednesday night, just days after she reportedly partied the night away with the Golden Globe winning actor after the BAFTAs.

The Revenant star was said to be smitten with the Irish ITV host after meeting her at the awards ceremony and celebrating his Best Actor win with her and pals later that night.

"Leonardo was completely taken by Laura. She was playing it cool but he made a beeline for her," an insider told The Sun. "[They were] getting on like a house on fire. Leo made it clear he wanted her to come back upstairs to his suite at the hotel to continue the party afterwards."

Laura was an official red carpet host for the event, with her coverage streaming on You Tube. She went public in her romance with Sunset Sons frontman Rory last July, but has always avoided speaking publicly about her romantic life.

And she remained characteristically quiet at the music awards in London, where she wore a black mesh drop hem dress and leather jacket.

Whitmore previously said: "I don't like talking about things, as you know, with personal stuff, because it is no one else's business. That's what my friends are for."
