Taking to Instagram earlier today, Laura marked her exit with a photo from her first day, seven years ago.

In the snap, Laura can be seen smiling in front of the camera as she clutches onto her MTV News microphone. Underneath her throwback photo from 2008, the 29-year-old included a message.

It read: "I have decided it's time to hang up my MTV News hat. It was my very first telly job and I can't thank MTV enough for taking the chance on me. However due to some upcoming projects, I can no longer commit."

On seeing her post, fans were quick to send Laura their well wishes. One user said: "I'm so shocked! Good luck for the future xx" While another said: "Amazing! Exciting times @thewhitmore."

Fellow TV presenter Caroline Flack even tweeted the starlet: "Gahhhhhh! You'll always be my fave mtv lass xxxxx."

Despite leaving MTV News, Laura did go on to say she will still appear on the channel, presenting other projects instead.

And it seems like the I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here Now! host has plenty more things to look forward too, as she teased fans with the promise of new projects over the next nine months.

We wonder what they could be... a few fashion-based ventures, perhaps? Well, we wouldn't be surprised after seeing her recent Instagram posts.
