AFTER a stint in the Australian sun for her I'm a Celebrity... Get Me Out of Here! commitments and a whirlwind of award shows to cover, MTV presenter Laura Whitmore is entitled to a Winter break.

There is nothing holding the Wicklow lass back as she hits the slopes to cool off.

Despite rubbing shoulders with the world's most famous faces, the DCU graduate still needs to have some down time.

The Wicklow presenter has been doing exactly that in the picturesque town of Mayrhofen, an Austrian ski resort, with pals.


While most people are hankering after some sunshine in January, it seems that the hard-working star doesn't mind the icy temperatures.

She has gotten into the spirit of things taking to an ice bar for a drink and wrapping up in fashionable fur.

Stylish Laura has even managed to make ski-wear look good as she gets to grips with the winter sport.

The snow-covered resort hasn't stopped the presenter sharing a bare-legged pic typical of beach getaways, however.

Meanwhile, the Austrian ski slopes have also attracted the attention of Laura's ex Danny O'Reilly.

O'Reilly and his Coronas bandmates are living it up alongside Ian Dempsey in the ski & spa resort of Bad Hofgastein in the Gastein Valley in Austria.

However, the pair are unlikely to run into each other due to the distance between both resorts.

Gleeson trio offer a hand

THEY are three of Ireland's most well-know actors, but the Gleeson family were on hand to honour the next generation of acting talent recently.

Brian, Domhnall and Brendan presented teen Zoe Kelly with the Olympia Theatre's 2015 Rising Star Award on behalf of the prestigious Dublin theatre.

Zoe will now take part in a range of acting seminars and courses at the Gaiety School of Acting throughout the year.

Boasting former graduates such as Colin Farrell, the Gleeson trio may have to watch their backs.

All loved up on Paris trip

FOR a couple who are keen to keep their private life private, 2fm's Eoghan McDermot and his model other half Jo Archbold threw caution to the wind this week during a Parisian mini-break.

The pair shared snaps of their holiday in the world capital of romance, including the requisite kissing pic.
