It's true, I am dating Welsh rugby star Andy - Danielle

CELEBRITY Botox doctor Danielle Meagher has confirmed she is romancing Welsh rugby player Andy Powell.

The pair set tongues wagging this week after being spotted getting cosy together at various Dublin hot spots.

She has previously boasted about how she is the only single cast member on TV3's upcoming reality series The Housewives Of Dublin, but it looks like the Derma Face owner has bagged herself a man.

Danielle and sports star Andy were seen getting cosy at The Berkeley Court Hotel last weekend after Ireland's 21-23 defeat against Wales.

The pair were also spotted relaxing together in Paddy Cullen's bar along with Andy's coach Warren Gatland and the rest of the team.

Speaking to the Diary, Danielle admitted that she spent time with the rugby star and is planning on seeing him again.

"Yes I'm not going to deny it. There is no point in lying. We have been friends for over a year and a half now and honestly I have always had a crush on him, there is no secret about that.

"We have been close for a while and I did hang out with him a good bit over the weekend.

"I've always had a soft spot for him but I was with someone else before and couldn't do anything. I even liked him back then when I was with that other person but this is the first time in a long time that I have been single," she explained.

But the Dubliner, who recently came under fire for suggesting Sharon Corr needed to get some work done, remained tight-lipped about Andy's inclusion in the new TV3 show.

Although producers confirmed that they will be following the stars while they holiday, Danielle says she doesn't know if the cameras will be joining her in Wales anytime soon.

"I'm really busy here filming for the show, and he's obviously over in Wales really busy with the team. I will be popping over but I don't know about the show. I waited a year for a kiss so I'm not rushing into anything. We'll see what happens, right now I'm having fun here" she said.

Meanwhile, sources close to the celebrity doctor revealed that the pair are completely smitten and are planning a secret getaway together.

"There were sparks when those two first met around a year ago. But Danielle actually tried to set him up with her friend Michelle McBarron. He actually stood Michelle up and a few weeks later she was in the headlines about partying with Ashley Cole.

"Everyone knew they were going to get together after that and Danielle was texting him constantly," the insider explained.
