But for now, a charming pebbly beach in Wicklow, Ireland is doing the trick!
The 34-year-old star shared two photos from her festive walk yesterday, on which she was joined by her dog Mick.
Wearing a Christmas jumper in aid of Save the Children, Laura wrote: ‘Scroll for Mick giving his best side eye. Just waiting for the day dogs allowed in the villa.’
The Irish star is evidently enjoying some home comforts before Winter Love Island kicks off on 12 January 2020.
The former Strictly Come Dancing contestant was of course drafted in to replace usual host Caroline Flack, after she was arrested and charged with assaulting boyfriend Lewis Burton earlier this month.
There were no hard feelings from Caroline who, putting her legal woes to one side, soon took to social media to congratulate her friend for taking over presenting duties.
‘I’m glad it’s Laura,’ insisted Caroline. ‘She love the show as much as I do… Again… Thank you so much for your continuous messages of support.
‘It’s a really tough time. But I’m doing all I can to keep my head above water and sort this all out.’
Meanwhile Laura has said she is ‘in shock’ over the job.
We’re sure she is!
Speaking on her Five Live radio show, she enthused: ‘I’ve got a new job!

‘It starts very, very soon. I am in disbelief and shock. It doesn’t affect this radio show too much. I will be flying back and forth from South Africa, hosting Aftersun on a Monday, live from London, and then doing this radio show on Sundays.
‘I want to say a big thank you to everyone who has messaged me. It’s kind of a dream come true but I wish it was under better circumstances.’
