Laura Whitmore leaves Love Island after three seasons

The 37-year-old Irish beauty began performing the duties in 2020 and has since hosted three seasons of the programme.

Taking to Instagram Laura wrote: “Some news! I won’t be hosting the next series of Love island.

“There are certain elements of the show I’ve found very difficult that cannot be changed some due to the format, including the flying back and forth to South Africa along with my new conflicting projects.

“I wish it was still possible but know you’ll be in safe hands.

“I was only planning to fill in for Caroline for a series and it turned into 3 series.

“I hope I did you proud Caroline”

In a statement, ITV said: “Laura has been a fantastic host across the last three series of the show.

“We are so grateful for everything she has brought to the programme but understand and respect her decision, and we look forward to working with her on upcoming ITV projects.”

Fellow Love Island stars rushed to wish her well in her next chapter, with 2019 runner up Maura Higgins writing: “You will be missed ❤️”

Demi Jones, who was an Islander in 2020, said: “You were incredible! We’ll miss you.”

Shaughna Phillips, an Islander who competed in season 6: “Of course you did! I’m going to miss you!”

Who will take Laura’s position on the show in 2019 has not yet been disclosed by ITV.

When the show premiered in South Africa in January 2020, Laura replaced the late Caroline Flack as host of the reality competition Love Island.

She later served as the show’s host for seasons 7 and 8 on ITV2.

The Irish celebrity’s remarkable television career began when she served as host of I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! NOW! on ITV2 for five seasons beginning in 2011.
