Laura Whitmore and Ashley Roberts on their European road trip

Taking a road trip in the summer is the dream for most people and boy is Laura Whitmore doing it in style.

The Bray woman is driving across Europe with her best friend Ashley Roberts.

The gorgeous pair are taking part in the Modball Rally across Europe to raise money for the rally's charitable foundation.

They left London on Saturday afternoon and have so far driven from London to Paris and then on to Milan.

There are parties at each location along the way as part of the exclusive fundraiser.

In order to be among the 180 cars allowed to take part, cars must have two modifications.


While they shared pictures of them enjoying the sights in Paris and Milan, it wasn't all plain sailing as their car broke down on the way to Rome.

Laura shared a snap of her and Ashley (33) sitting in the front seats of a truck which she captioned, "Flat tyre. Hitched a ride".

Once they get to Rome, they will spend a night there before heading to Monaco and finishing the seven-day trip in Barcelona.

Ashley and Laura have been friends for years and often attend glamorous parties together in London.

This is just one trip of a summer full of fun for 30-year-old Laura who will be presenting a six-part series on the Ibiza Rocks festival for MTV.
