Nadia Forde has opened up about her relationship with Rory McIlroy, saying she loves a man with 'ambition and drive'.

Rumours have been rife that the two are dating, after they were spotted leaving a trendy Dublin nightclub together at 3am last month.

Nadia was photographed the following day in Rory’s home town of Holywood with fellow model Katie Larmour.

“I met Rory last year through friends. He’s a lovely guy.”

“The bottom line with me and Rory is we have mutual friends who introduced us and we’ve been in each other’s company,” Nadia told the Sunday Mirror.

When the 25-year-old brunette beauty was asked if Rory was her “type”, she replied saying; “I don’t really have a type, to be honest.”

“For me it’s not about looks. It’s about the person. I think whoever I end up with I will be friends with first.

“The important thing is having somebody with ambition and drive who is hard-working. That for me is a massive turn-on,” she said.

Paddy Power had been offering odds of 6-1 that she will be Rory’s next girlfriend.

Nadia denied she was in a relationship with the golfer during an interview with the Sunday Independent’s Barry Egan last month, saying she was not involved in Rory’s high profile split from Caroline Wozniacki.

McIlroy (25) and Wozniacki (24) were due to get married in September.

Rory called off the engagement saying; “The problem is mine. The wedding invitations issued at the weekend made me realise that I wasn’t ready for all that marriage entails.”

“I wish Caroline all the happiness she deserves and thank her for the great times we had.”
