Nicola Hughes is the latest Irish beauty to move agencies, hopping from AR Models over to Assets.

She's hoping to maximise on building her profile as the new girlfriend of Made In Chelsea star Alex Mytton.

The pair have been dating since last summer and Nicola is planning a move to London in the future.

"I'm going to work my ass off and make the most of this exposure," she told the Diary.

Former Miss Ireland Holly Carpenter also recently left AR Models for rival agency Assets, as did Vogue Williams.

However, Andrea still has some of Ireland's most bankable models on her books including former Miss Universe Ireland Roz Purcell, former Miss World Rosanna Davison, Georgia Salpa and Pippa O'Connor.

Love story to warm you up

It is a lovestory to warm the cockles of your heart in this cold January.

Wuthering Heights is currently showing at the Gate Theatre and has been extended until January 31 due to popular demand.

Kate Brennan shines as Catherine Earnshaw and Tom Canton gives a brilliant portrayal as the brooding, love-lorn Heathcliff.

With an incredible set and brilliant period costumes, this is one not to be missed. Tickets from €25 are on sale at gatetheatre.ie.

Colin's back to his hottest

He's been looking pretty rough while filming HBO drama True Detective lately - but film heartthrob Colin Farrell is back to his best in a new ad for Dolce and Gabanna.

The Castleknock native is the star of their new campaign for their Intenso fragrance and 'intenso' he is as he smoulders while lounging on some volcanic rocks.

Quite the turnaround from his recent look as an overweight cop with a bad moustache.

Don't miss Turner show

The annual Turner exhibition is underway at the National Gallery of Ireland on Merrion Square West until January 31.

Henry Vaughan, who bequeathed the works, stipulated that the drawings should be exhibited to the public, free of charge, each January when the light is at its lowest level.

The works of the 12 finalists of the Hennessy Portrait Prize are also showing at the National Gallery until February 8.
