She's gone from model to novelist and now Amanda Brunker looks set to add yet another string to her bow as a playwright.

The former Miss Ireland has revealed that she has penned a steamy radio play called Curiosity - a work that she says is "not for the prudish or young ears".

Writer Amanda has enlisted homegrown actress Leigh Arnold to lend her voice to the main character Amy, who has fled to Donegal after discovering her husband has been cheating on her with men.

Moone Boy actor Norma Sheahan is also set to star in the play.

The raunchy show will air on May 10 on Sunshine FM, before hitting the stage in Dublin's Smock Alley Theatre in October for three weeks.

The former model is fresh from being left red-faced on the red carpet after a seagull defecated on her at last week's VIP Style Awards,

A witness at the prestigious event said Amanda was taken aback but didn't let the unfortunate incident stop her enjoying the night.

"She came up to the VIP interview area where organiser Michael O'Doherty was ushering people in and said: 'A seagull s*** in my hair. A seagull has just s*** on me!'

"Someone handed her a serviette and she turned to Michael to ask him to remove the seagull droppings. Michael did his best.

"Poor Amanda though. There was nothing she could do but she bravely soldiered on," the source said.

Brian's teeing off as wife Pippa is named most stylish

His wife Pippa has just been named the most stylish woman in the country, but Brian Ormond has been proving he's more of a threat in the golfing stakes than style stakes as he enjoys a sporting trip to the US.

The presenter tweeted pictures himself enjoying some time on the golf course in Florida after Pippa brought her famous best friend, Big Brother winner Brian Dowling, as her plus one to Friday's glamorous style awards.

Fran takes to the stage

Love/Hate star Peter Coonan, who played gangster Fran in the TV series, has teamed up with a host of Irish actors for a new stage production of Before Monsters Were Made.

The play, written by Ross Dungan and set in rural Ireland over 50 years ago, sees Peter star alongside Janice Byrne and Lorcan Cranitch. The show runs from April 29-May 16 in Temple Bar's Project Arts Centre.
