Top five... Reality Models

As Barry Egan meets 'Big Brother' star Jade Lynch, we look at other Irish models who have featured on reality TV
1 Vogue Williams
Vogue was the winner recently on ITV's show Bear Grylls: Mission Survive. Bear is the holder of the title Most Appropriate Name Ever. Even if Bear Grylls sounds like a risque barbecue for nudists, says you, all over Google looking for one in your area. Fair play to Vogue for winning out, though. It's hard to know what could prepare you for 12 days in a Costa Rican jungle surrounded by creepy crawlies. But being married to Brian McFadden at the time must have helped.
2 Georgia Salpa
We hear some of the Irish models at Georgia's wedding in Italy were a bag of nerves. It was the first time they had appeared in public wearing anything other than a bikini. We love the fact that Georgia is always willing to share her beauty tips with other women. In fairness, it's also kind of her not to mention the one thing guaranteed to make an Irish woman more attractive. And that is to be half Greek.
3 Nicola Hughes
The Dublin model was a big hit on Made in Chelsea. Locals in Chelsea were shocked to see her rocking up at their parties. It's still pretty rare for an Irish person to be allowed in the front door of a house in that part of London. The show features loads of entitled people who seem to do nothing but flounce around on very long summer holidays. You might like to insert a joke about teachers here, but we couldn't possibly comment.
4 Nadia Forde
Nadia is dating Welsh rugby hunk, Dominic Day. (Or at least she was at the time of writing. The celebs can be fierce flighty.) We hear she likes to meet him on Friday. That's Dominic Day. Sorry. Apparently Nadia calls her new boyfriend Dom. There is no evidence that he calls her Sub. Boom Boom. Google Dom-Sub if you don't get that joke. Maybe turn the sound down on your computer first, you naughty girl.
5 Kelly Donegan
Kelly starred on Tallafornia. It was a show featuring young Dubs bitching about each other and looking in the mirror. And that was just the men. A spin-off called Infectious was cancelled after one episode. Some say it was too raunchy for Irish viewers. We say there is only one thing that could stop us watching pissed people having it off with each other. That's when the show's name reminds us of chlamydia.
