It was an emotional day for Laura Whitmore as she wrapped her final MTV News bulletin.

The Bray girl announced she was leaving MTV News earlier this month to focus on other commitments.

Laura began her broadcasting career seven years ago after winning reality TV show Pick Me MTV.

Since then she has travelled the globe attending red carpet events and interviewing some of the biggest names in the music industry.

The bubbly blonde certainly made the most of her final day in the studio enjoying a glass or two of prosecco with her production team.

The TV star also posed for a series of photos around the MTV building which she posted on her Instagram account.

Since joining MTV, Laura has bagged several high-profile presenting gigs including I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here - Now!

The 29-year-old has several projects in the pipeline which she will announce in the coming months. In the meantime, she will continue to present popular series MTV Asks.

The past week has been something of a whirlwind for the former DCU journalism student.

Not only has she walked down catwalks as part of London Fashion Week, she also fronted the Brits pre and post shows on ITV2.

Laura said the atmosphere at the Brits was "crackling".

"This year was the most memorable in years, between Kanye's incredible performance and Madonna's tumble," she said.

"The ceremony holds such a special place in the hearts of the nation," she added.

"The standout performance of the night for me was Ed Sheeran. He had no gimmicks, just him and the guitar," she said.

"This year was more memorable than we have had in a while - for good and bad reasons - and that is why we love it."
