Morgan jets off to cheer for her cricket ace beau

JET-SETTING songstress Morgan Deane touched down in India today to show her support for her new beau, cricketer Graeme Smith.

The Herald can reveal that the Cork born beauty is fast becoming one of South Africa's most talked about WAGs after going public about her romance with the country's sporting equivalent of Brian O'Driscoll.

Graeme (30) has previously dated some of the most beautiful women in the world, including South African fashion model Minki Van Der Westhuizen, and was even previously linked to Prince Harry's on-off girlfriend Chelsy Davy.

However, it appears the South Africa team's captain now has eyes only for Morgan, showering the up and coming singer with compliments on her Twitter and Facebook pages since they first found love earlier this year.

She has now jetted out to the Cricket World Cup to be by his side as South Africa go into battle against Ireland on Tuesday.

"Morgan is really conflicted about who she's going to cheer for on Tuesday," said a close pal.

"Naturally, she's behind Graeme and the rest of his team 100pc now that she's gotten to know them all so well, but she's also loyal to her Irish roots and knows some of the team members.

"She will be seeing them all next week and is looking forward to congratulating them on their recent victory against England."

The usually private Smith was more than happy to show off his Irish beauty when the couple posed for pictures together at the South African High Commission's Reception at the Taj Palace in India last month.

And it looks like the relationship is going from strength to strength with Morgan making her second visit to India in a matter of weeks.

A source close to the talented vocalist, who is set to be a backing singer for Jedward at the forthcoming Eurovision song contest, said: "She was very excited about flying over to see Graeme. Everything's going great between them.

"They're making the long distance work and are on the phone constantly."

The couple's blossoming romance was first revealed exclusively by the Herald, following Morgan's shock break-up with former flame, man-about-town Dave Murphy.

The D4 bachelor -- nicknamed the modeliser -- has also moved on since their split and is now said to be dating Karen Houlihan, glamorous hostess at Robbie Fox's new venue The Pink.
