Michele joins her rugby beau for Roman holiday
JET-SETTING model Michele McGrath is set to hit the road again this weekend to visit her rugby beau Mark Siddons in Rome -- but won't be joining the Irish contingent to cheer on the boys in green on Saturday.
The Assets beauty told the Diary how she will miss out on the much-anticipated Six Nation's rugby match between Ireland and Italy at Stadio Flaminio.
Fresh from a romantic getaway to Paris with her other half, loved-up Michele (24) explained how her Welsh man, who plays in the Italian League, will no doubt be cheering on the opposition.
"I'm actually heading to Rome on Sunday, it would have been cool to catch the match while I'm there but I just miss it," Michele said.
"It's probably a good thing though as I don't have a breeze about rugby, I would be lost," she added.
In addition to her modelling work, busy Michele has also been making a name for herself as a fashion guru on TV3's Ireland AM.
Dublin beauty Michele shares the slot with fellow Assets catwalk queen Lynn Kelly, with the high-profile pair taking to the small screen every second week.
This week, however, Michele found herself caught up in an on-air drama when presenter Mark Cagney had his own 'Andy Gray moment'.
The TV3 breakfast show host was left red-faced after urging co-presenter Anna Daly to wear hot pants live on air as she presented the fashion segment alongside Michele.
The leggy presenter has since confirmed that it was all said in jest and insists there are no hard feelings as a result.
