Nadia is hot on Georgia's heels . . .

NADIA Forde could be a bigger star than even Georgia Salpa in 2013, as she jets off to LA.

Her new agent Andrea Roche has predicted a massive future for the Clontarf model, who switched from Assets agency this week.

And she is due to be flown over to California to be personally mentored by an acclaimed acting coach.

Just as Rozanna Purcell was shown the ropes by a top pageant agent in Columbia, Nadia (24) will be tutored and shown all the intricacies of the acting industry.

Miss Universe Ireland organiser Andrea told the Herald: "It was great to get her on board. She has the same exotic look as Georgia but she can sing and dance as well -- she has the full package.

"She also has a very good agent in the UK and they're paying to fly her over to do this acting course in LA so they obviously have a lot of faith in her talent."

Now that she has secured UK representation, panto star Nadia could be in line for much bigger deals.

It's been just a year since Georgia (27) made her appearance in Celebrity Big Brother -- and she hasn't looked back.

She now has her pick of the photocalls, picking up an estimated €3,000 per job, as well as lucrative spreads with various men's magazines.

But Nadia could be hot on her heels. She has described moving agencies as "the beginning of a new chapter in the career" and is eyeing up a more permanent move to the UK.
