IRELAND’S top model Georgia Salpa has been sacked by Andrea Roche amid allegations of cancelled photo shoots.

Andrea Roche confirmed to the Irish Daily Mirror that she no longer represents Salpa: “I have decided to part company with Georgia and have let her go.”



Andrea, a former Miss Ireland, was credited with helping launch Georgia Salpa’s career when she took over her management in 2010 when Salpa left Assets model management to join Roche’s new agency.



The model is in high demand, but since relocating to London after her success on Celebrity Big Brother last year, but it is alleged her time management has become an issue for her Irish based agency.



The model, who now lives in the UK full-time, was said to be unable to fulfil obligations to commitments in Ireland, where she commands in the region of €2000 per day.



Sources close to Andrea Roche told the Mirror that the model boss was becoming increasingly frustrated at Georgia’s unavailability and decided to let her go.



“It just wasn’t working out anymore. Andrea is a real professional and she runs a tight ship. She had no choice but to cut ties.”



Georgia is now signed with Neon model management in the UK, after leaving FM Model Agency some weeks ago.



She told the Mirror in a statement: “I am grateful to AR Models for the work I’ve done with them in the past here in Ireland.”



She acknowledged the effort of Andrea Roche in taking her career to the next level and said in the statement that she hopes to remain friends.



Andrea also expressed the wish that they remain friends and said the split was “nothing personal”.



AR Model Agency has some of the country’s top models on its books including Pippa O’Connor and Rosanna Davison.



Earlier this month Georgia spent time in the US where she was approached to do a spread in Playboy, but turned down the offer.



However she is rumoured to be in talks to feature in her own reality show, given her resemblance to the Kardashians.
