Andrea and Rob celebrate as they go househunting

THEY'VE been a rare sight on the social scene of late but model boss Andrea Roche and her other half Rob White were more loved-up than ever this weekend when they enjoyed a night on the tiles alongside Rob's sister Holly White.

The Diary spotted the high- profile trio relaxing in the exclusive new Parlour area at celebrity hotspot Buck Whaley's, as they enjoyed celebratory drinks together.

And it looks like the group had plenty to toast, with the news that Andrea and her businessman beau are to take the big plunge and move in together.

The couple -- who celebrate their one-year anniversary together this month -- are said to have begun looking for a love nest on the city's southside as their romance moves up a gear.

Rob's sister Holly, meanwhile, had plenty to celebrate following the news that her former RTE series, Dan And Becs, looks set to become a hit in the States, with creator and co-star David Coffey in talks to sell the programme to a US network.

"They were all in great form and were keen to check out the new VIP area," said an insider.


"Andrea and Holly get on really well and have become very close since she and Rob started dating.

"It was around this time last year that they first went public with their blossoming romance and they've become inseparable since then.

"The next step for them now is to move in together," they added. Andrea first went public with her relationship with the Killiney 'It boy' last March and since then the couple have become a regular fixture on the social scene.

Andrea's ex-husband, PJ Mansfield, last week set tongues wagging that he also had a new woman in his life after being spotted leaving Town Bar and Grill following Glenda Gilson's 30th birthday party with gorgeous blonde Olivia Kenneally on his arm.

However, rumours of a new romance for the Citywest heir were soon quashed after it was revealed the young beauty is dating one of his friends.

Instead, the man-about-town is said to be keen to enjoy the single life and doesn't want to get into another relationship just yet.

His ambitious former flame, meanwhile, has been busy building her empire, with her modelling agency going from strength to strength since she launched it last year.

Andrea has already recruited everyone from Rosanna Davison to Sarah McGovern to her books.


She was joined by a host of big names at the weekend as she partied alongside fellow models including Karena Graham, Leah O'Reilly, Jodi Wood and Michele McGrath.

Brunette beauty Michele is set to take off for her home-away-from-home of Rome today in order to spend time with her rugby beau Mark Siddons.
