Laura Whitmore's dating show has been axed.

The 38-year-old presenter had provided the voiceover for a series of 'Date My Mate' - which saw singletons' friends use an app to help them find their perfect match - for Prime Video, but the programme won't be returning.

The news is the latest in a "disappointing hat-trick" for the presenter, after she left 'Love Island' due to "conflicting projects" and ITV axed her Sunday series 'Laura Whitmore's Breakfast Show'.

A source told The Sun newspaper: “'Love Island' is a distant memory and she has ceased hosting her weekend show on ITV1, so this is a rather disappointing hat-trick of farewells.

“Laura seems to have tried a variety of projects after leaving the villa, in­clu­ding chat shows and documentaries, but it seems even the familiar territory of a dating show isn’t a safe bet.”

Laura previously admitted she still finds TV a "hard environment" to work in.

Speaking on the 'Spinning Plates' podcast, she told host Sophie Ellis-Bextor: "Television is a great environment to work in but it's a really hard environment to work in and there is definitely ups and downs. It's about kind of finding your own voice within that space.

"I've definitely worked on live television shows where sometimes personal stuff can be really hard behind the scenes but you still have to go in and do your smile and do your job. That can be really conflicting because you feel 'This isn't how I feel right now', it's the same probably for musicians who have had something really horrible happen and they still have to go up on stage and entertain because it's not for them, it's for the audience.

"It's hard. I've constantly got these internal conversations with myself because I'll go in to do something I really don't want to do that day, but you know you have to do it. And then it makes you feel guilty because you know how lucky you are to do a job you love. It's hard. I'm still navigating this industry and finding what makes me happy, and also pushing myself."
