She stepped out with YouTube gaming magnate Scott Fitzsimons, bringing him to the opening of the Amber Rooms on Lower Leeson Street.

Although the pair have been dating since the summer, they generally keep a low profile on the social scene.

Looking suitably loved-up, Jo and Scott joined the masses of revellers who helped toast the opening of the new venue, which was formerly known as Buck's.

Here's hoping there was no awkwardness with her ex-boyfriend though, given that RTE presenter Eoghan McDermott was also at the opening night party.

channel He and Jo, who left modelling after setting up her own YouTube channel, dated for nearly two years before splitting last April.

A source said the former couple managed to avoid each other for most of the night as they were in different parts of the club.

"Dublin's a small city and their paths are inevitably going to cross at some stage. Eoghan's really good friends with Michele McGrath, who does the PR for the club.

"He wanted to show his support for the new venue," said a source.

Other well-known guests included top model Thalia Heffernan, who sported a new curly-hair do and a pair of micro-shorts.

The well-known beauty was one of the first to hit the dance floor.

Nightclub boss Richard McDermott laid on a free bar for guests, which ensured everyone was in the party mood.

Also seen hitting the tiles in the over-23's venue was The Apprentice star Dillon St Paul.
