Irish TV presenter Laura Whitmore has confirmed that she's dating Love Island narrator Iain Stirling, saying "he's lovely".

Rumours were swirling that the Bray born presenter and the 29-year-old Scottish comedian were seeing one another and now Whitmore has confirmed their relationship.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, she said: "Yeah he's my boyfriend. He's lovely. I've got him as my screensaver. I've known him for ages.

"I had never watched Love Island before but I don't need him to give me spoilers because everyone from I'm a Celebrity works on it anyway."
