Exes Lisa Murphy and Gerald Kean set for red carpet face off at VIP Style Awards

It will be a case of the ex for Gerald Kean and Lisa Murphy.
The former couple, who ended their on/off romance for the third and final time in January, will come face to face for the first time at the Peter Mark VIP Style Awards later this month.
After a long-played out relationship, both have been invited to the biggest red carpet event of the year, with all eyes on them.
"Gerald and Lisa are top of our invite list every year, but when they parted company in January, we didn't know what to do," VIP Magazine group publisher Michael O'Doherty told the Irish Sun.
"We could hardly invite Gerald and not Lisa. Gerald and Lisa have both been huge supporters over the years, so we invited them both. We hope they can turn up and enjoy the night."
The pair have often used the awards as a moment to steal the spotlight, with Lisa famously wearing a barely there sheer black number in 2011 after boycotting the ceremony after O'Doherty made a jibe at the reality star's expense in 2008.
"Last year we didn't have a male category but we had a lot of interest from men coming in wearing slinky dresses and big wigs, until we realised they were taking off Lisa Murphy," he said.
It's all water under the bridge though as Lisa is expected to walk the red carpet again, alongside a host of Ireland's most stylish stars, including Kathryn Thomas, Roz Purcell and Pippa O'Connor.
