Irish TV presenter Laura Whitmore has been romantically linked to Games of Thrones star Richard Madden. The two were apparently introduced through mutual friend, Kit Harrington, who reprises the role of Jon Snow, on the hit HBO series.

According to a report in The Sun, the 30-year-old is extremely happy with the blooming relationship with Madden, who is best known for his role as Robb Stark in the fantasy drama. A source said: "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," the insider added.

Madden was in on and off relationship with Doctor Who's Jenna Coleman, while Whitmore recently split with rocker Rory Williams. Meanwhile, in February reports had emerged that Whitmore got very close to Leonardo DiCaprio at a BAFTAs after party on Valentine's Day. The two allegedly then headed back to the Oscar-winner's London hotel.
