Presenter Laura steals limelight as she stars in Danny's video

TV presenter Laura Whitmore can now add music actress to her growing list of credentials.

The 26-year-old's latest role sees her starring in her boyfriend's brand new music video. Bray native Laura, who is dating Coronas frontman Danny O'Reilly, features in the hit band's video for Mark My Words.

This is the first time the I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here Now host has starred alongside her beau. The blonde beauty can be seen putting her skills to the test by posing in front of the camera and appears throughout the video walking along a beach and lying in bed.

Laura, who co-hosted the Brits 2012 Backstage with Keith Lemon on Tuesday night for ITV2, said the pair were over the moon to find out that the show doubled its figures this year.

The former DCU student said it was a great boost to her confidence and she was proud to be apart of it.

"Working with Keith Lemon was hilarious, he kept me on my toes, to say the least. It was a great show and we doubled last years figures so I think we're both very proud of that. It's such a huge production and was an honour to be a part of," she added.

Speaking to the Herald, the MTV star also divulged that she lost all professionalism when she met Rihanna on the couch and has a massive "girl crush" on the Grammy winner.

Laura has interviewed the likes of Tom Hanks, Justin Timberlake and Jennifer Lopez but the bubbly personality just couldn't control herself when she met the Bajan popstar.

"I've met most people before but never Rihanna, so it was great to chat to her. She's one of the prettiest women I've ever seen in real life and so down to earth which was a delight. She's my girl crush, so I think I giggled when I touched her leg during the interview. All professionalism goes out the window at times like that," revealed the presenter, who said she actually got to touch RiRi and even asked the chart-topper could she feel her lavish Givenchy gown.

As well as getting to chat to stars such as Adele, Bruno Mars, Jessie J and Kylie Minogue backstage, Laura also got the chance to be among rock royalty on stage. Laura braved the red carpet in a lacy black mini dress for the occasion.
