Irish tv presenter Laura Whitmore is leaving MTV, the music station that launched her to fame, due to other commitments.

The Bray born presenter has been a popular face on the tv channel since she won a national talent search in 2008.

The blond was picked from thousands of hopefuls as the ultimate winner of 'Pick Me MTV' to become the face of MTV News.

Stints presenting 'I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here' and the BBC Eurovision coverage elevated her to household name status.

The DCU journalism graduate took to Instagram today to share the news that she will be leaving MTV next week.

Later this week, the 29-year-old presenter will report from the red carpet at the BRIT awards, grilling the night's attendees about their fashion choices.

The London based beauty teased that she has several projects in the pipeline, but she will continue to front some of the 'MTV Asks' segments.
