Hollywood's hottest actor is seemingly pretty taken with our biggest presenting export - but he'll have to wait in line.

Leonardo DiCaprio celebrated his Best Actor BAFTA win on Sunday with Irish tv presenter Laura Whitmore, who is dating musician Rory Williams, and her friends in London.

Having officially swept the boards during awards season for his performance in The Revenant, the notorious modeliser is one step closer to finally achieving Oscar glory. And while it might have been a night celebrating professional achievement, he had no problem letting his hair down after his most recent win.

Leo reportedly partied the night away with the Bray native and pals in his hotel suite, including supermodel Lily Donaldson, in celebrations that went on until 5am.

"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, fresh from a trip to New York for Fashion Week. She went public in her romance with Sunset Sons frontman Rory last July, but has always avoided speaking publicly about her romantic life.

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."
