Georgia says 'I do' -- but only for sketch

Mark Hilliard

THE mere notion of model Georgia Salpa in a wedding dress is enough to bring a tear to many a male eye.

But don't fret, it was simply the Dublin sex-symbol's latest appearance on RTE's 'Republic of Telly' and was more about tears of laughter than of loss.

The 26-year-old had alerted the world to her pending nuptials on Twitter shortly before filming on the grounds of Montrose yesterday.

The sketch involves show regulars Bernard O'Shea and Jennifer Maguire stumbling across Ms Salpa, who is doing a wedding shoot.

An intense fight breaks out that leads to Ms Maguire being covered in wedding cake, but the exact details won't emerge until it airs on RTE 2 this Monday night.

Boxer Bernard Dunne and model Daniella Moyles also appear in the scene.

Ms Salpa has become something of a regular fixture on the show -- one sketch alone attracting 40,000 hits on Youtube.

Yesterday, she got male pulses racing when she announced on Twitter: "Just arrived at RTE to film 'Republic of Telly'. Can't wait to see Bernard, gonna eat him alive."

And with a link to a picture of herself in white, she added: "Getting married today, like my dress?"
