TV BEAUTY Laura Whitmore has said that being linked with superstar Niall Horan plays havoc with her love life.

Despite being best pals in London and enjoying sleepovers, they are adamant there's no romance.

She is now rumoured to be dating Scottish musician Paolo Nutini.

She is fed up with being linked with the Mullingar One Direction star.

"To be honest, those rumours have been going on for two years now and I'm so sick of them," said Laura (28). "It makes it harder if you are actually going out with someone else and to be honest, I just got bored of it after a while. I was like, 'Whatever. People can believe what they want to believe.' No matter how many times I say it, they say the opposite. I ignore it."

The in-demand beauty has been spotted hanging out with Nutini over the past few months, including at the Brits in London. She was also at his gig in Dublin's Olympia Theatre last month. Afterwards, they went out to Westmoreland Street pub Cassidy's.

They have only fuelled rumours further by declining to comment when asked if they were in a relationship. But it will be back to business as usual for Laura, who co-hosted the ill-fated IFTAs with Simon Delaney last weekend, as she's heading off to LA shortly.

The Bray native is heading to the uber-cool music festival Coachella at the weekend.

All eyes will be on whether she'll turn up with Nutini to soak up the California sun. She'll then spend a week in LA before heading to Copen-hagen for Eurovision.
