Laura Whitmore has been romantically linked to Game of Thrones star Richard Madden.

Whitmore, who recently split from Sunset Sons frontman Rory Williams, is said to be excited by the new relationship with Madden, who is best known for his role as Robb Stark on the HBO drama.

The Bray native is said to have gotten to know Madden through Kit Harington, who plays his on-screen half brother Jon Snow on the series.

"Laura knows the Game of Thrones cast well, especially Kit, and got to know Richard through those connections," a source told The Sun UK. "She has been telling friends she is excited by the new romance."

"It's still early days but it is clear they really like each other. Richard immediately felt a connection and thinks this could go somewhere. There's real chemistry between them. He has done much of the wooing but they're both very keen," the source added.

Whitmore and Madden have yet to address the rumours.
