I'll come home if someone will give me a job here - MTV Laura

MTV beauty Laura Whitmore (27) has revealed how she would love to return to Ireland -- but only if the right job came up.

Back home to help launch Cinemagic Film and Television Festival, Laura said she would not rule anything out.

"You can never say never," the Bray native told the Herald. "But at the moment, I'm absolutely loving what I'm doing and I'm living each day as it comes.

"I have bought a place in London so I'm going to be here for a while. That's not to say that I'm not willing to consider anything that might come up. I would never say no to anything straight out."

The DCU graduate, whose big break came after winning the Pick Me MTV contest three years ago, also reunited with her boyfriend in Dublin.

The showbiz presenter was backstage at The Voice of Ireland as she cheered on her Coronas boyfriend Danny O'Reilly as he performed on the hit show.

Gorgeous Laura, who went down a storm on ITV2's I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here Now, and Danny are now living in London together. And it was something of a reunion for her, given that she's good friends with Voice of Ireland stars Eoghan McDermott and Niall Breslin.

"I was really looking forward to catching up with them all. I haven't seen the Irish show yet but I've heard great things about it. Bressie's good friends with Danny.

"It was good to see Kian Egan again. We did Celebrity Juice together last week and he was so funny on it.

"Apparently he's a bit of a Mr Nasty on the programme but like I said, I haven't seen it yet. I have seen the British version of the show and I think Danny O'Donoghue is doing great, he's brilliant on it."

She also commended Niall Horan's success with his One Direction bandmates in America -- and said it couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

"I have interviewed them a few times and Niall is just so lovely, really down to earth.

"I saw them on the red carpet not so long ago and he legged it over to me. I was standing there with Danny and I thought he was going to say hello but he was just thrilled to see my boyfriend. It was him he wanted a picture with, not me."
