Love Island host Laura Whitmore is heading to Glastonbury Festival in style.
With the rest of the UK affected by the rail strikes, the TV presenter took an alternative route to the music event, catching a helicopter with her pals.
Her helicopter ride comes as commuters up and down the country have had quite a rough time of things, trying to get to work and other social events.
A dispute between train workers in the RMT union and rail bosses over fair pay and job losses has resulted in strike action, with RMT union members expected to strike again on Saturday (June 25).
So Laura, 37, has taken matters into her own hands, opting for a more stylish mode of transport to her hen do, which was delayed for three years due to the pandemic.
Dubbed GlastHENbury (very clever), the group no doubt have a weekend of fun lined up, as they head to the festival everyone wishes they were at (you won’t be shocked to learn that tickets are sold out).
Taking to her Instagram story to document her trip in the sky, the ITV2 presenter showed pictures of her wristband and a bedazzled hat with ‘Bride’ encrusted on the front in colourful gems.
Posing with her mates, Laura donned a short denim jumpsuit and pair of brown suede boots, which she is praying ‘survive the weekend’.
Completing her festival glam, the bride – who married Love Island co-presenter Iain Stirling in 2020 with a lowkey ceremony – added beads to her blonde locks, spelling out phrases like ‘be kind’ and the LI classic, ‘my type on paper’.
‘There she is,’ Laura could be heard saying in a video she posted of Glasto’s famous Pyramid stage, where the likes of Billie Eilish and Sam Fender will be playing.
Also scheduled for a Pyramid stage slot is Wolf Alice, however, the band are currently stuck in America after a cancelled flight meant they were unable to travel as planned.
Glastonbury returns this weekend after two years of cancellations because of Covid, and it would be an understatement to say festival goers are buzzing.
Big names including Sir Paul McCartney, Fleetwood Mac, and Kendrick Lamar will take to the stage, performing to packed crowds of around 200,000 people.
As for Laura, she’s no Glasto newbie, having attended the festival previously with former One Direction star Niall Horan.
Her Glasto hen party follows her surprise wedding to voice over king Iain, who popped the question when they filmed the first winter Love Island together in January 2020.
Laura was covering presenting duties for original Love Island host, the late Caroline Flack, who had stepped back from the show, at the time.
She married former CBBC presenter Iain at Dublin’s City Hall in November 2020, with the pair reportedly having invited just 25 guests due to Ireland’s lockdown restrictions at the time.
In March 2021, they welcomed their first child together, a daughter named Stevie.
