Glamorous TV presenter Grainne Seoige has parted with her agent Noel Kelly.

While the 40-year-old celebrated her engagement to Leon Jordaan last weekend, the star appeared to have parted ways with Ireland's "agent to the stars".

Seoige's profile has been removed from Noel Kelly's website, indicating that their professional partnership has come to an end.

In a statement to this morning, a spokesperson for Noel Kelly Management confirmed the split.

"We can confirm that we no longer represent Gráinne Seoige."

"We represented Gráinne for the past nine years, during which time we negotiated very significant, high profile, successful projects and contracts on her behalf."

"We would like to take this opportunity to wish Gráinne Seoige continued success in the future."

Grainne's sister Sile also split from the agency last July.

Noel is credited with boosting the careers of some of the biggest names in Irish media.

He represents presenters like Ryan Tubridy, Joe Duffy, Dave Fanning, Lisa Cannon and Claire Byrne.

Last weekend, Grainne toasted her engagement to South African-born rugby coach Leon Jordaan.

Seoige has been in a relationship with Jordaan since October 2011 and the couple threw a party at Dublin nightclub Lillie's Bordello at the weekend to celebrate their news.
