And hours before her villa return airs on Wednesday night, Laura Whitmore debuted a new look as she and her husband Iain Stirling took a break from Love Island filming to hit the beach in Mallorca.

Laura looked gorgeous in a floaty mini dress which featured a high neckline, with thin straps which crossed over at the top of her back.

The reality show host teamed her mini dress with a black pair of flip flops boasting stud detailing, and carried her belongings in a woven beach bag. 

Letting her new bubblegum pink tresses steal all of the attention, she opted for minimal accessories but did shield her eyes with glamorous shades. 

Comedian Iain covered up in a burgundy T-shirt and aqua coloured swim shorts, while completing his ensemble with a khaki cap.

The couple’s outing comes after it was reported that Laura has appeared in just 14 minutes of Love Island this series despite earning a rumoured £600,000 to host the show.

A total of 1,610 minutes of footage – almost 27 hours – of villa action has been broadcast so far this year, with the halfway point approaching, according to The Sun.

The host had appeared on 13 minutes and 26 seconds of the main show up until the point of Wednesday evening’s episode, meaning she is paid the equivalent of £744 a second.

Four contestants have been dumped from the villa so far this series, situations that would have seen Laura or former host, the late Caroline Flack, step foot in the Majorcan property to reveal the results. 

However, the Islanders have announced who would be departing from the show during the recouplings and as a result of public votes this year by reading out a text messages.

She touched on what she is paid for hosting Love Island, as one online comment said: ‘Laura has the easiest job on the telly! She gets paid £50k a minute. It’s an outrage!’  

Referring to her husband Iain Stirling who narrates Love Island, the host said: ‘Firstly, Iain has never had attention on money he earns. Why don’t we like women earning money?’

Laura then added: ‘I b****y wish I earned what was written in the press! I only get paid days I work.’

Love Island airs at 9pm on ITV2 and ITV Hub. Episodes are available the following morning on BritBox.
