Laura Whitmore's 'swipe at Love Island' as she hints at real reason for exit

  Laura Whitmore's 'swipe at Love Island' as she hints at real reason for exit The Irish TV presenter has opened up about her real reasons for leaving the dating series three years after taking on the gig when then-host Caroline Flack stepped down in late 2019. Following Caroline's shock death, Laura remained host of the programme and its spin-off show After Sun until standing down last month. And it seems she has now revealed her true reasons for leaving her presenting role on the dating series. She said: "Love Island is a show that I love to watch, and I always want to work on shows that I enjoy. But there’s nothing more that I can do with it. There are parameters.

She opted for a typical stage makeup look, complete with a bright red lip and full-coverage base.

And posing for snaps in the getup, the star appeared in high spirits as she flung one leg in the air and struck a slew of poses.
