Love Island host Laura Whitmore steps out in Mallorca ahead of 2021 series launch


Love Island host Laura Whitmore was spotted out and about in Mallorca on Saturday ahead of the much-anticipated launch of the new 2021 series.

The presenter, 36, who jetted into Spain on Friday, was seen enjoying a stroll in Palma De Mallorca with her mother Carmel Whitmore and her newborn baby daughter as she made the most of her downtime before her hosting duties began.

Laura looked radiant in a black floral mini dress as she took in the local sights with her mum, who will no doubt be in for baby-sitting duties while Laura and narrator husband Iain Stirling, 33, are working.

The Irish beauty teamed her dress with a black cardigan and white trainers, while she shielded her eyes with rounded shades.

She slung a large black bag with a neon green strap over her shoulders, which likely held essentials for her 12-week-old baby girl. 

Laura appeared relaxed as she made her way around the area, keeping cool by sipping on her official Love Island water bottle.

The devoted new mum, who adhered to Covid rules by wearing a face mask, was spotted doting on her little girl on several occasions, before the group stopped for lunch at a nearby restaurant.

There was no sign of Laura’s husband Iain during the outing, with the comedian no doubt having already began his narrating duties ahead of the series seven launch on Monday. 

The previous day, Laura was seen arriving at the airport with her daughter and team as she prepared to reprise her hosting duties. 

The new mother carried her little girl in the leopard print carrier while wheeling her suitcases out of the terminal ready to head to her hotel.

‘It’s been a year where I think we all need a bit more love and fun in our lives and I think everyone is ready for Love Island to be back – myself included. 

‘I’m really excited about seeing the Villa. I’ve never seen the Villa in Mallorca so I’ll probably be there a little bit fangirling at the Villa. It’s almost like a person to me. So I need to remember that I’m there doing a job, not just a fangirl. 

‘I haven’t met any of the Islanders yet but I’ve heard from the people behind the scenes that they are an incredible cast – it’s really exciting.’

Asked whether she missed the series during its time off the air, Laura added: ‘I’ve never worked a summer Love Island, so I’d normally be watching it on the telly. I really missed watching it. I couldn’t watch the news anymore.

‘I needed something that was a bit more fun – I think everyone’s the same. Having the break from it has made people appreciate it more.’ 

Earlier this month Laura and Iain sparked speculation that they had already touched down in Mallorca,  as he shared a snap of their personalised water bottles.

Iain didn’t specify if he had landed on the island yet but did send fans wild with the caption that read: ‘Not long now…’ 

Laura will once again be hosting the show after taking over duties for the winter series in January 2020 following Caroline Flack’s decision to step down amid her ongoing trial for assault.

The presenter tragically died by suicide in February, with Laura continuing to host the show in honour of her close friend. 

Love Island returns on Monday June 28 at 9pm on ITV2 and the ITVHub.
