She might be in Ibiza for work, but presenter Laura Whitmore has been enjoying the fun side of being on the party island as she jetted over this week for MTV.

The Bray native (30) flew to the island in preparation for her six-episode special on the 10th anniversary of iconic festival Ibiza Rocks.

Although she left her news-anchor role at the music channel earlier this year, the stylish blonde has continued to work with MTV on new projects.

Laura enjoyed cocktails in the airport before leaving for the sunny island, and it wasn't long after she had landed that she took friends for a pint of Guinness.

Laura is known for her hectic work and social life, along with her love of all things music.

The broadcaster partied in Stateside at Coachella in April before returning home to see the Foo Fighters play Slane with her brothers last month.

The presenter, who is rumoured to have rekindled her love with The Coronas frontman Danny O'Reilly, spends her summers reporting from all the top festivals and always makes it home to party at Electric Picnic.

While everyone is welcome to try out for a place, MovieExtras.ie is especially keen to find some bearded men and long-haired ladies.
