90: Laura Whitmore

Blank Podcast with Giles Paley-Phillips & Jim Daly

Laura Whitmore is a radio broadcaster, TV presenter, writer and podcaster. Laura's first big gig was presenting for MTV, which led to her then presenting on ITV's I'm a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here! More recently Laura has presented her own show on Radio 5Live, as well as being the presenter for ITV's Love Island and team captain on Celebrity Juice. Laura also presents many podcasts including Cast Away, a podcast about podcasts. We spoke to Laura from her home in London and started by chatting about studying journalism, and her experiences in both Dublin and Boston, US. Jim and Laura discuss thinking in shorthand and what led her into presenting. We touch on the press and how a lot of people are really starting to switch off from the clickbait style of modern mainstream journalism, and in particular the print media and how podcasts have really helped to allow guests and presenters to express themselves and be more comfortable and candid. Laura gives us her advice on dealing with her own blank moments and how imposter syndrome is often something she has to deal with.

Laura Whitmore on Finding Positives in a Turbulent 2020 and Protecting Herself on Social Media

Going for Goal

This week on Going For Goal we welcome onto the podcast a former WH cover star – the Irish model and presenter, Laura Whitmore. She has become one of the best known and loved faces and voices, on TV and radio respectively, since she landed her first job with MTV in 2008. Her grit and positivity shine through in this episode, where she chats to WH editor-in-chief Claire Sanderson about her rather turbulent 2020. A year that began with the high of landing the plum job as the new Love Island host, before losing her dear friend Caroline Flack part way through the series. Laura tells us how – while it’s certainly been tough – she has been grateful for the fact lockdown has given her time to grieve. It also allowed her to spend more time with her partner Iain Stirling and rediscover the importance of stillness for mental health. Something that’s been MIA in her schedule since she moved from her hometown of Bray, County Wicklow, to begin her career in London more than a decade ago. She also opens up about her – relatably irregular – workout routine, dealing with online trolls and trying her best to use social media as a force for good.Follow Laura Whitmore on Instagram: @thewhitmoreFollow Claire Sanderson on Instagram: @clairesandersonFollow Women's Health on Instagram: @womenshealthukTopics:Laura Whitmore on self-care during the pandemicHow she protects her mental health on social mediaWhy lockdown gave her the chance to grieve friend Caroline FlackWhat it's like to work on Love Island with partner Iain StirlingHer go-to exercise for staying fit while travellingLike what you’re hearing?
