Hannah’s delight as hunk surprises her with return trip to Dublin before hols

She has been living abroad for nearly two years, so home-sick model Hannah Devane is making the most of a bank holiday to enjoy some quality time on Irish shores.

The Ballsbridge beauty is preparing to jet home to Dublin and to the bosom of her family - courtesy of her boyfriend.

Her Serbian other-half, Nemanja Bukanic, surprised her with flights to Dublin for the UK bank holiday to hang out with Hannah’s nearest and dearest before jetting out to Montenegro this July.

“Nemanja surprised me with flights home for the weekend, so we will be home for longer than two days 
for once,” a delighted Hannah told the

“I get home as often as I can, but there’s always so much to do, between catching up with friends and family and my model agent over here, Andrea Roche.

“It is exciting because we just booked a holiday to Montenegro in the summer so we are living for that.”

The couple, who have been dating for more than two years, spent 10 days soaking up the sun and sipping cocktails in the exotic European location last summer and are counting down the days until they can return.

Hannah was solo on her most recent return to Dublin to attend the VIP Style Awards last month, where she turned out alongside a gaggle of gal pals, including Roz Purcell (inset) and Holly Carpenter.

The striking brunette wowed in a low-cut, slinky black gown and partied at the Marker Hotel event before making her way to one of her favourite haunts, Krystle, with fellow models Thalia Heffernan and Theo Sutra.

The 23-year-old has been based in London since October 2012 after being snapped up by UK agency First Model Management following her stint on Britain and Ireland’s Next Top Model in 2011.

Hannah is concentrating on her assault on the European fashion market after signing for French agency The Face earlier this year.


She is hoping to return to fashion capital Paris in the coming months after enjoying her first stint over there in March.

“I have no dates organised just yet, but I am hoping to go back to Paris soon,” Hannah told the

“I am just updating my portfolio for the next trip at the moment as well as working my usual jobs and a few fashion shows.”

Boyfriend Nemanja secured a job in the UK last summer.
