Video: Tongues wagging as Georgia Salpa and Jennifer Maguire share a kiss
IT’S a publicity stunt, of course, but thousands of TV viewers will tune in tonight to watch Jennifer Maguire and Georgia Salpia share a kiss on RTE show The Republic of Telly.
In an echo of the famous snog between Madonna and Britney Spears at the MTV Video Awards in 2003, the model and the presenter lock lips on the sketch show, which is broadcast at 10pm on RTE Two.
Show insiders have refused to divulge the context of the kiss but the publicity is unlikely to do any harm to the ratings. A video of the encounter has already made its way on to YouTube.
In real life, Maguire is engaged to English actor Lau Zamparelli while Salpa is dating millionaire Joe Penna.
