THEY kissed and made up, but it was all for the cameras.

Despite being the only Irish representatives to make it through to the final 10 of Britain & Ireland's Next Top Model, there is no love lost between Holly Carpenter (right) and Sarah Kennedy (inset right).

After a number of bitchy clashes on screen, the pair later patched things up -- but Holly says that the truce was all for show.

Since the series came to an end, Dublin starlet Holly has not spoken to fiery red-head Sarah, and has no plans to.

The 22-year-old made it down to the final seven before getting the boot, leaving Donegal lass Sarah as Ireland's last hope for the title.

"No, I haven't spoken to her since the show," Holly said.

"It was nice for us to clear the air because when you are living in a house, it's selfish to create tension for the other girls.

"But I don't think myself and Sarah have much in common," explained the girlfriend of Leinster and Irish rugby star Cian Healy. "We probably won't see much of each other."

Only two episodes remain of the latest series, which is fronted by Australian super model Elle MacPherson, alongside model Tyson Beckford and Dannii Minogue.

Raheny native Holly's impressive run came to an end after she ended finished in the bottom two alongside Sarah, with the judges opting to save the 23-year-old and send Holly packing.

BINTM is currently being shown on location in Barbados.

Sarah won last week's photo shoot when Elle named her picture of the week.

But Holly is going for friendship over patriotism and is rooting for an English model to win the series.

"I would love to see Sophie Ellson win," explained Holly.

"She is tall and gorgeous and the judges love her.

"She went through the earlier rounds with her head down, but now everyone is really starting to notice her."

While she may have been the most controversial model on this year's series, Holly also made some firm friends and last month Sophie, Saffron Williams and Naomi Pelkiewicz were given a tour of Dublin's fair city.

The girls spent three nights in a row on the town, including a visit to Harcourt Street hotspot Everleigh Gardens as well as visiting some quirky locations like Georges Street Arcade.

After a summer of indulgence, including a trip to Egypt with her family and boyfriend Cian, Holly is now hitting the gym as she hopes to launch a TV career.
