As far as keeping your relationship a secret, this one is definitely up there.

Laura Whitmore is famously coy when it comes to discussing her romantic life, but her rumoured romance with Game of Thrones star Richard Madden is said to have come to an end.

The Irish tv presenter, who is shining off her dancing shoes for Strictly, never confirmed a romance with the former Game of Thrones star, but the pair are said to have been quietly dating in recent months.

While both are staying tight-lipped on the relationship, it's said to have simply fizzled out.

"They've both been really busy. Laura is presenting and getting ready for Strictly Come Dancing and Richard has been performing onstage in Romeo and Juliet," an insider told heat.

"They ended up hardly seeing other," the source added.

The pair were first linked in February after meeting at the Brits and were said to be "really happy" at the time.

It isn't the first high profile romance for the former couple as Laura dated Sunset Sons frontman Rory Williams for seven months before splitting late last year, while Madden, who played Robb Stark on the hit show, called it quits with actress Jenna Coleman last year.

The Bray native recently said she's "not looking for anything" on Strictly, but wouldn't mind seeing romance blossom between some of her castmates.

"Friends who have been on the show told me you make best friends for life," she told The Sun. "They said you do become close as your dance partner is such a big figure to you and you rely on them so much."

"The show has made a lot of couples. How many relationships have come out of it? Quite a few.

"I'm not looking for anything, but I wouldn't mind going to a wedding if somebody else is looking to get together."
