Yikes! Laura and Amanda get in the spooky spirit of Halloween on night out

TV presenters Amanda Byram (39) and Laura Whitmore (27) got into the Halloween spirit over the weekend as they celebrated the spooky event together.

Castleknock native Amanda used her dusky dark looks to good advantage to dress up as Egyptian queen Cleopatra, complete with some dramatic eye make-up.

The former Swan anchor posted up a pic of her stunning transformation and was complimented by old pal Yvonne Keating who told her she was "looking good".


But the single star wrote: "Right I'm ready, now where the hell is Julius?"

And Amanda joked how she was "pretty sure" that Cleopatra didn't have a denim jacket and a handbag containing her doorkeys and a credit card.

MTV beauty Laura went for a more gothic look as she donned a blood-splattered white apron with a chef's hat, calling herself 'Hell's Kitchen'.

The pair partied the night away as they helped a mutual pal celebrate his fancy-dress themed birthday at a bash in London. Other famous faces at the bash included Xtra Factor presenter Caroline Flack, who dressed up as a 'sexy skeleton' on the night.

Presenter Amanda has been diving her time between Dublin and London over the past few months after taking a new direction in her career.

BBC decided not to make another series of game-show Total Wipeout after its four-year run and Endemol are now considering remaking it instead.

Amanda has been involved in a number of smaller projects ever since, filming The Angel for Sky 1 and Don't Stop Me Now. However, she hasn't ruled out a return to Irish TV, should the right project come along. She was recently linked as a possible anchor for RTE's new showbiz programme which is being mooted as a rival for TV3's Xpose.
