Me Tarzan, you Nuala Carey - weather woman swept off her feet by shirtless Adonis at Bloom

RTE weather presenter Nuala Carey was swept off her feet - literally - by a blonde Adonis at the opening day of Bloom.

Tarzan made an appearance at the top prize winning garden inspired by Warner's upcoming The Legend of Tarzan, which releases later this summer.

Pavel Ponik, a student from Slovakia living in Ireland, played the role of the jungle Adonis and he bears a striking resemblance to Alexander Skarsgård who plays him in the movie.

Unsurprisingly Tarzan proved massively popular, particularly with the selfie-seeking female (and a few male) punters.

We're assured his abs are real and are not enhanced whatsoever by expert contouring.

Nuala Carey certainly seemed impressed, as she conducted her weather report for RTE from the comfort of his strapping arms.

She later tweeted, "Yes, I'm changing my name to Jane & moving into the Jungle with Tarzan. We will BBQ every night! #LegendofTarzan"

Given he had to pose shirtless all day Pavel was blessed with 23 degrees of heat at the Phoenix Park.

The good weather - and possibly the presence of Tarzan - saw attendance at the festival up 30% on the first day last year. 

It's the tenth year of the festival of gardens, food, and flowers and organisers are hoping to see 120,000 visit over the weekend.
