Laura Whitmore dating Game of Thrones star Richard Madden

Laura Whitmore is reportedly dating 'Game of Thrones' star Richard Madden.

The 30-year-old Irish TV presenter got to know Richard - who plays Robb Stark in the fantasy HBO series - through mutual friend Kit Harington and the romantic chemistry between the pair was said to be instant.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Laura knows the Game of Thrones cast well, especially Kit, and got to know Richard through those connections. She has been telling friends she is excited by the new romance. It's still early days but it is already clear they really like each other. Richard immediately felt a connection and thinks this could go somewhere. There's real chemistry between them.

"He has done much of the wooing but they're both very keen ."

Laura recently split from her rocker boyfriend Rory Williams after the Sunset Sons musician decided he didn't have time to make their relationship work as is too busy with his career.

A source said: "Things haven't worked out with Laura and Rory. He's getting on with his music and doing his own thing."
