Rugby star Rob and MTV's Laura get a groove on

MTV babe Laura Whitmore sparked rumours of a new romance when she was spotted flirting with Irish rugby player Rob Kearney at Electric Picnic.

The pair spent a lot of time together on Saturday and even joined the 70s disco band Chic on stage.

Onlookers said there was clearly chemistry between the pair.

"They were getting very cosy, it looked like something was definitely going on between them," a source told the Herald.

"They were flirting and having fun.

"They looked really cute together."

Chic frontman Nile Rodgers invited around 30 festival goers, including Whitmore and Kearney (pictured), to dance on stage with them.

Laura (28) was in the middle of the crew, dancing to disco anthem Le Freak while Rob (27) danced alongside her.

Last year, the Bray native attended the festival to support then-boyfriend, rocker Miles Kane. But this year the star is single. Her ex, Paolo Nutini, healined the main stage on Saturday. Laura has also been linked to Love/Hate star, Killian Scott.

Leinster star Rob is also single after splitting from actress Susie Amy last December.
