Is Salon romance in the air for Aisleyne?
TV3's Celebrity Salon has already produced one new romance -- in Georgia Salpa and Calum Best -- and now it looks there could be a second relationship in the making.
The Diary can reveal how former Big Brother star Aisleyne Horgan Wallace has set tongues wagging, after she and newly single producer of the reality series John Norton were spotted in a passionate embrace at Friday night's Miss Universe finals at the Burlington hotel.
Dressed to impress in a short white dress, the British socialite (32) was invited to join fellow stars' of the show, Rosanna Davison and Georgia, as well as bride-to-be Pippa O'Connor to judge the beauty pageant, which saw Miss Spin South West Aoife Hannon crowned the winner.
And Aisleyne managed to raise a few eyebrows in the process, making a quick dash into John's arms for a tactile display of affection as soon as her judging duties were complete.
The pair later joined fellow attendees including Michele McGrath, Louise Johnston, Rozanna Purcell, Alan Hughes and Derek Mooney to continue the festivities at a VIP afterparty at Buck Whaley's on Leeson Street.
One of Aisleyne's Celebrity Salon co-stars revealed how "they have serious chemistry and are always flirting" -- but a spokesperson for the model insists they are just friends.
"There's definitely no romance to report," they told the Diary. "Aisleyne had a couple of drinks and was just enjoying herself. It was all a bit of fun, there's no more to it than that. She's gone back to London now."
It won't be long until the outspoken blonde is back on our shores, however, given that she is planning to make a temporary move to Dublin in order to pursue more work projects in Ireland.
Aisleyne even has a pad sorted already, with her new pal Georgia offering to let her move into her spare room.
Straywave boss John, meanwhile, is recently back on the market, after he and Polish beauty Izabela Chudzicka permanently called time on their on/off relationship..
The leggy blonde has been throwing herself into work since the split, after starting a new job as PR manager with the Mercantile bar.
Another high profile beauty who appears to have bounced back following her recent love-split with comedian Des Bishop is model Jenny Lee Masterson.
The beauty queen was dressed casually in jeans and a yellow top as she enjoyed a rare night out with her fellow model pals at Bucks on Friday night following the Miss Universe Ireland finals.
The Baldoyle native has been keeping a low profile lately after returning to her studies to become a teacher.
Her former flame Des was also on the town this weekend, joining a group of pals for a night out at Krystle following his gig at Vicar Street on Saturday night.
