Loved-up Dave and Laura make their debut as a couple

HE'S been dubbed the 'Modeliser' thanks to a string of relationships with high profile beauties and socialite Dave Murphy hasn't disappointed with his latest flame.

The Diary can reveal the D4 bachelor has been wining and dining a new catwalk queen -- brunette beauty Laura Scanlon.

The leggy model, who hails from Wexford, is currently signed to Andrea Roche's books after impressing at last year's Miss Ireland finals, where she was narrowly pipped to the post by reigning beauty queen Emma Waldron.

The loved-up couple made their debut on the social scene last Saturday night, when they stepped out to celebrity hotspot Krystle for a night on the tiles.

The handsome pair left fellow revellers in little doubt about their affections for one another, arriving hand in hand before being spotted cosying up in the club's VIP suite.

It remains to be seen how long the romance will last however, with Dave said to be in the process of making a move to New York.

Model and singer Morgan Deane (left) called time on their high profile relationship at the beginning of the year, the Cork beauty quickly bouncing back from the split with her now fiancé, South African cricket player Graeme Smith.

Earlier this week the pair had the chance to rub shoulders with Danny O'Donoghue, Mark Sheehan and Glen Power of The Script, when they went back stage after their concert in Cape Town.
