TV host Laura Whitmore says she's looking forward to relaxing at home this Christmas.

The Bray native is also excited to be heading to the Olympia Theatre to see Aladdin, which stars her IFTAs co-host Simon Delaney as the genie.

The pair presented the ill-fated awards earlier this year and remain friends.

"I think they made it bigger [the criticism] than it was, I just came home and did the job," Laura said.

"I love working with Simon, he's a brilliant guy. He's in the panto at the moment as the genie so I'm going to go and see him while I'm home."

RETURNED

The MTV presenter has only recently returned from presenting I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here Now in Australia and admits she still hasn't got over the jet lag.

"I'm A Celeb was good but I'm really jet-lagged at the moment so I'm up at four in the morning and in bed by nine o'clock at night. It's rock and roll all the way," she laughed.

After filming wrapped, Laura (29) holidayed in Sydney for a week and really noticed the large Irish contingent there.

"Sydney is very Irish, there's a pub called Scruffy's that I ended up in one night and I felt like I was at home. It felt like I had never left," she told Ryan Tubridy on 2fm.

"It was good craic and there was a good traditional band playing as well which was great."

The blonde beauty is home for a week and is looking forward to catching up with her friends and family.

Yesterday she enjoyed fish and chips at trendy eatery Super Miss Sue with celebrity chef Clodagh McKenna.

"I came home on Sunday morning, which was my mam's birthday, so that was nice," Laura said. "I'm home for a week so I'll head down to Wexford. I'll spend some time there and in Bray and then back over to London next week."
