Bookshelfie: Laura Whitmore

Presenter, broadcaster and author Laura Whitmore chats with Vick about their early MTV days, Love Island and why women should take up more space in a room.

Best known for presenting shows like I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! NOW!, Survival of the Fittest and of course, Love Island, she has become a familiar face on our screens. But she’s also a regular voice on her own BBC Radio 5 Live series, The Laura Whitmore Show. She’s an actress, and she’s competed on Strictly and the Great Celebrity Bake-Off! Her self-help book, No One Can Change Your Life Except For You was an instant Sunday Times bestseller, and the paperback is coming out in July.

Laura’s book choices are: 

** Animal by Sara Pascoe

** Against Love Poetry by Eavan Boland

** Love Warrior by Glennon Doyle

** Butterfly by Yusra Mardini

** The Girl with the Louding Voice by Abi Daré
