They set the rumour mill into a frenzy when they were snapped kissing in London, and it looks like Laura Whitmore and rocker Rory Williams are definitely an item.

The Bray native looked smitten with her new man as they walked hand-in-hand on the Spanish island of Ibiza.

Laura is there filming a six-part series on the Ibiza Rocks festival for MTV.

The festival celebrates the tenth anniversary of legendary Ibiza Rocks hotel, with gigs on from June until September.

Romance

It is believed Laura met the frontman of indie band The Sunset Suns recently at the Calling festival in Clapham Common, London, and they have been seeing each other ever since.

Rory is the latest in a string of rocker boyfriends for the TV presenter.

She was snapped kissing her on-again-off-again boyfriend Danny O'Reilly in a north London park in May.

The Coronas frontman had his arms wrapped around the blonde beauty as they kissed on the grass, and they were also pictured eating lunch together.

They called it quits in 2012, but have been seen together on a number of occasions since then.

Danny revealed he wrote their song The Long Way when he was getting over their split.

He also said he was glad the band were touring at the time.

"It definitely made it a bit easier for me that we were on tour and busy and getting that therapy every night playing music," he said.

She was also briefly seeing Scottish singer Paolo Nutini last summer and she jetted into Dublin to see him perform at the Olympia, but it fizzled out soon afterwards.

Partying

Laura often shares pictures of herself partying with One Direction star Niall Horan and was forced to deny they were seeing each other in the past.

"I'd rather you actually asked me about somebody else other than Niall, to be honest.

"I was never seeing Niall. He's a child," she said at the time.

"The most embarrassing thing about that is people thought we were together. I love Niall - he's lovely - but I'm 28," she added.
