She recently announced her shock split from boyfriend Tom Brazier.

But Laura Anderson showed she could more than hold her own going solo, as she stepped out for dinner at popular celebrity eatery The Ivy in London’s Covent Garden on Saturday. 

Having travelled back down from Scotland for the night, the 2018 Love Island star, 31, looked effortlessly chic in a pale violet trench coat.

Always one with an eye for an ensemble, Laura matched her coat with an oversized cream cricket jumper with an orange and burgundy trim. 

She marched along the pavement in heeled cream boots, while her loose caramel tresses flowed along in the breeze.  

The reality star accessorised with an elegant gold chain, while she kept her makeup to a minimum with just a slick of gloss and a dash of bronzer to highlight her summer glow.   

Laura’s latest elegant appearance comes just a couple of weeks after her split from her fitness coach boyfriend Tom, which happened soon after she moved back to Scotland.

The split appears to have been sudden, as Laura last posted a picture with the trainer just days before she announced they had separated.

Stirling born Laura, 31, told fans on an Instagram story: ”Unfortunately it hasn’t worked out between us. In respect of Tom’s privacy I won’t be discussing this further. All my love to him and you all for continued support.’

Although the pair never revealed exactly when they met, the couple went public with their romance in May and spent lockdown together at Laura’s London flat.

The two even went on holiday to Dubai together and hit the headlines when they were mugged in Barcelona, before Laura also introduced Tom to her family in Scotland. 

Back in April, Laura revealed she would be moving back to Scotland permanently after lockdown is over, due to feeling lonely in the English capital. 

Speaking to Vas J Morgan for his I AM ENOUGH podcast in August, Laura said

Laura Whitmore leaves fans in hysterics with epic interior design fail involving a multicoloured rug

Television presenter Laura Whitmore has left fans in hysterics while revealing her interior fail.

The 35 year old Irish star took to Instagram to show off a new rug she’d purchased, however it wasn’t quite what she expected.

Sharing a snap of the rug with her 1.2 million Instagram followers, the Love Island presenter penned: “So I ordered this… and today, this arrived (SWIPE >)” followed by an eye-rolling emoji.

In the first snap we see a beautiful geometric patterned rug in pastel shades spanning a well-designed lounge in what appears to be a shop photo.

However, the beautiful rug which appears in the professional shot isn’t the same rug as Laura received, with it instead being a touch shabby, a completely different shade and half the size.

The shocked presenter shared a snap of herself standing on her new purchase, showing that it was instead a door mat sized rug, as opposed to a lounge rug as it was advertised as.

The rug that turned up was a little less impressive than Laura had hoped

And fans couldn’t stop laughing, as they rushed to the comment section to pen their thoughts.

One wrote: “Literally dying”, while another added: “the reality of ordering online.”

A third said: “This has cracked me up,” and a fourth penned: “Hahahahahhaha.” [sic]

The comment section, which was filled with laughing emojis by commenters, also saw some fans comparing the rug faux-pas to 2020.

“If there was ever a picture for 2020,” while another commented: “If 2020 was a rug.”

Despite the unfortunate purchase, the rest of Laura’s home is a total haven of interior perfection.

Laura and partner Iain Stirling, who is also a television star, have been living together since he moved in back in 2018.

Their home is filled with quirky artwork, a gorgeous balcony and a must-have dressing room.

Plus, the pair recently introduced an epic garden bar into their home.

“I can now go to the pub and not even leave my house. Ideal.”

But arguably her garden is the most impressive part of their humble abode.

It features a gorgeous koi pond, lavish outdoor seating and their very own outdoor pizza oven.

Matt took to Instagram last year to share some before and after pictures of the space and captioned the post: “I started planning the garden just over a year ago and can now finally say that it’s finished!

“It’s been a lot of hard work but so worth it and Laura and I can spend the summer enjoying it.

“The koi pond is 6ft deep and all the pipework and filters are hidden away.”

Laura’s passion for baking started when she was just eight-years-old, but admitted that it was only recently that she realised how good she actually is at it.

She loves creating things that show off her decorating skills and believes that she works very well under pressure.

Speaking about her time on the show, Laura said: “It was so surreal walking into the tent for the first time. My stomach was in knots and I was so nervous but excited at the same time.
