The Irish tv presenter (30) had been dating Sunset Sons frontman Rory Williams (29) for eight months, but the pair are reportedly taking a break and focusing on their careers.

During her month-long stint in Australia, hosting I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here NOW!, Williams was glued to the former model's side and the pair were uncharacteristically open about PDAs on social media, including trips to New York and nights out in London.

But there has been radio silence between the two in recent weeks, prompting speculation they've parted ways.

"Things haven't worked out with Laura and Rory," an insider told The Mirror. "Some of her friends think they are still going out, but he's getting on with his music and doing his own thing."

If her Instagram is anything to go by, she's not exactly resting on her laurels waiting by phone. She's fresh from a ski trip with friends to Penkenbahn in Austria and will be hosting a St Patrick's Day party in New York on March 17.

The Bray native was the subject of speculation after she was pictured in a group including Leonardo DiCaprio and reportedly partied with him and friends after the BAFTAs in February. The Revenant star was said to be smitten with her after meeting her at the awards ceremony.

"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."

At the time, Whitmore refused to comment on the reports linking her to the Oscar-winning actor, only telling Hello! magazine: "Everyone was just having fun - there was a lot of dancing."
