Laura Whitmore will be back on our screens soon, as her new investigative series Laura Whitmore Investigates is set to arrive at the end of July.
The Wicklow native has swapped the Love Island villa for some globe-trotting investigations as she explores topics like toxic masculinity, BDSM, and cyber-stalking.
Opening up about her new venture, Laura told Variety: “This series shines a light on a range of issues, which along with the contributors, victims and experts involved, we hope will resonate with viewers and help us to understand their dangers, complexities and consider possible resolutions.”
The series has seen the presenter travel through the USA, UK, and Europe, which Laura is “incredibly proud.”
“It’s been a an intense, eye-opening and at times emotional experience and one that I’m incredibly proud of,” she explained.
Their investigation into toxic masculinity will focus on the subculture of involuntary celibates, or incels, a misogynistic group which has thrived online, known for their anti-female mindsets.
While her episode on BDSM will focus on how the now-billion pound industry is influenced by pornography, as well as the “50 shades” defense, which is often used by male criminals during trials for their crimes against women.
Their investigation into cyber-stalking will examine the motivations behind the phenomenon.
Laura served as executive producer of the series as well as host.
