Xpose pals rally round Lisa on birthday after love split
TV3's Lisa Cannon (33) has taken comfort in her Xpose pals after her split from her long-term boyfriend Sean Reid.
The Herald can reveal how she spent her first birthday as a singleton celebrating in the station's canteen after her friends surprised her with a chocolate birthday cake and muffins.
And the star, who said that the split was amicable and they would remain friends, added that she was "having a super day" as she marked turning a year older with her showbusiness pals.
A close pal revealed that Lisa was determined to put the split behind her as she immersed herself in her busy job with the celebrity programme.
"Her phone was ringing off the hook after news got out about her relationship with Sean ending but she was just busy enjoying the day.
"It started off with the girls surprising her with a birthday cake, which she was thrilled about and helped take her mind off everything," he said.
"Lisa's a tough cookie, she's very strong deep down and you would never have known from her that anything was amiss. She's a stunning looking girl as well, she won't be single for long."
The pair have been together on and off for some seven years and this isn't the first time they have split up.
They called time on their romance in 2007 but rekindled it in 2008.
But movie expert Lisa, who last year said that she had no plans to walk down the aisle, has previously said how her hectic job makes it hard to find time for her personal life.
The Dublin beauty, who also edits the Irish Wedding Diary, has one of the busiest schedules given that she's constantly flying off to cover various red-carpet movie premieres and interview international stars.
