Rob who? Ruth jets off for fun in the sun

Learning an ex has moved on is never easy, least of all when he happens to be one of the country's best-known rugby hunks.

So when news reached Assets model Ruth O'Neill that her former fling Rob Kearney had found a new girlfriend in the form of British actress Susie Amy -- better known as TV WAG Chardonnay Lane-Pascoe -- over the Christmas period, she made like any self-respecting beauty queen and booked the first flight out of here.

The Diary can reveal the former Total Xposure contestant (21) has spent the past three weeks sunning herself in Florida's Palm Beach alongside fellow model and television presenter, Rachel Wyse.

The the Castleknock model, who was linked to the Leinster player as recently as last summer, returned home last weekend and has since told pals that she harbours no grudge towards the Dundalk sportsman.

"Ruth knows about it and she's happy for them," said a close pal.

"Herself and Rob were never that serious so I don't think she's too bothered.

"Either way she hasn't had time to think about it as she's been off having a great time on holiday with Rachel." Both young beauties have been enjoying the single life in recent months, with Ruth and Rob going their separate ways in the autumn, while Rachel split with her long-term beau, Matt O'Donoghue last October.

Rugby hero Rob meanwhile chose last Wednesday night to debut his new relationship with the glamorous brunette when the couple stepped out to the opening night of Queen inspired musical, We Will Rock You at Dublin's O2.
