Love Island host Laura Whitmore quits show

AFTER landing on her feet with a six-figure deal to host Love Island, it’s no surprise to learn Laura Whitmore had ditched her old job as a DJ.

I can reveal that after the current series of the ITV2 dating show ends, she won’t be returning to her Sunday morning programme on BBC Radio 5 Live.

The Laura Whitmore Show has been running for four years and in that time it’s helped boost her ­profile, but now she is keen to make the most of becoming a household name on TV.

A TV insider said: “Love Island has given her huge exposure and a healthy pay packet, and she’s now going to exploit that to the max.

“Laura has already hinted she has other projects in the pipeline and she can’t find the time to continue with all her roles.

“So something had to go, and it’s sad for listeners that this is what’s been jettisoned as she moves onwards and upwards.”
