Tipsy star Laura blames the TV juice

NO wonder MTV beauty Laura Whitmore appeared so giggly on a recent episode of Celebrity Juice on ITV2 -- she'd had a few tipples.

The Bray native signed up to appear on an Irish special that included Kian Egan from Westlife and Castleknock beauty Amanda Byram on a team led by Holly Willoughby.

And Laura proved she was more than game for a laugh after she allowed the host Keith Lemon to simulate a saucy bed scene with her, much to her obvious amusement.

"It was probably one of the most fun shows to do. The copious supply of white wine may have helped," she said.

Things are also going swimmingly well with her long-term boyfriend Danny O'Reilly from the Coronas after she revealed how he flew over from London to Belfast just to have lunch with her while she was here for the MTV Presents Titanic Sound. "No one said it was easy dating me," she laughed.

The presenter's career is currently riding high after she proved she can channel hop from MTV to ITV2 to front I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here Now!

But she said she wouldn't rule out an eventual return to her native Ireland if she was offered the right job with RTE. "You can never say never," she told the Diary. "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. I would always say 'lets have a chat about it.'"
