It looks like she will be heading into the investigative journalism sphere as she announced her next project is called “Laura Whitmore Investigates”.

“New TV project coming soon…” she captioned the picture.

However, she has yet to share any other details about what the series could entail.

Of course, Laura has a true crime podcast with her husband Iain Stirling. Now it looks like she is set to delve into the world of crime truly.


It comes after it was confirmed that she would not be returning to her radio slot after four years with BBC Radio 5.

“Laura has made the difficult decision to leave her weekend show after a brilliant four years,” Heidi Dawson, controller, BBC Radio 5 Live, said.

“We’d like to thank her for the energy, insight and humour she has brought to this programme and look forward to working with her again in the near future.”

Laura posted on her Instagram showing herself and her husband Iain enjoying a meal together to toast some good news.

She shared the cryptic caption: “Little celebration last night. I’m a huge believer in timing, and yesterday everything just clicked into place and I got some very exciting news.”

“Sometimes life moves so fast you forget to be still and just enjoy the moment. Going to be a busy year so it’s important to take a breath. Also massive red moon last night was pretty spectacular!”
