Boys in green find DJ Caprice is simply out of their league

HIS recent split from a top Irish model clearly hasn't put footballer Sean St Ledger off leggy catwalk queens.

The Irish international (25), who recently parted ways with Hayley Ryan after a brief romance, was spotted making a serious play for model Caprice over the weekend -- ten years his senior.

The blonde was spinning the decks in the new Bucks Townhouse after her appearance on the Late Late Show finale, when St Ledger and his team-mate Liam Lawrence (28) stopped by.

A Diary mole revealed that the hunky duo were in full party mode and revelled in attention showered on them from fellow clubbers before they clapped eyes on Caprice (38).


"They were all over everyone and anyone that moved. They were acting like total poseurs. They seemed to absolutely love being recognised by people and were chatting up loads of girls until they spotted Caprice.

"As soon as they saw her they dropped everyone else and it was actually hysterical watching them fawn over her because she was having none of it.

"Caprice had no idea who they were. She was in great form after wowing the crowds with her dj-ing skills and was in a very chilled out mood.

"She looked like she was having a great time and got a great laugh out of the two guys competing for her attention."

The besotted players were out toasting Ireland's 3-0 win over Algeria. But while the lads were in celebratory spirits, Stoke City's blond boy Lawrence was left fuming after being wrongly mistaken for half of Jedward.

"They were doing their best to chat up Caprice when someone asked Liam if he was John or Edward Grimes because his hair was styled so high.

"Everyone got a great laugh out of it, including Caprice, and I think the lads were a bit put out by everyone having a joke at their expense. But that didn't stop them from continuing to try to woo Caprice."

Lingerie model and businesswoman Caprice wowed the jam-packed club with her mainstream DJ set in the club on Friday night, marking the first time she has spun the decks on Irish shores.

"She was brilliant and really got the crowd going because she has loads of personality. She is very down-to-earth; she was up for a good night out with friends."

Caprice refused to allow a long night of interviews and dj-ing to stop her from joining in on the club's celebrations after being voted Best VIP Room at the In Dublin Magazine Best of Awards 2010.

The model has been spending more time here recently while she films the highly awaited new series Style Wars, which is due to air on TV3 sometime this summer.


An insider revealed: "She is a very big bubbly personality and she calls it like she sees it. She has amused everyone during filming because she starts a lot of sentences with saying 'I don't want to sound bitchy but ... ' and then launches into what she really thinks. It's going to make for great TV."

Reports that the model is off the singles market after falling for a long-term friend have been exaggerated, according to pals.

"It's nothing serious; he is more someone she enjoys spending time with but I don't think it will be her next big romance."

Meanwhile, soccer star Richard Dunne partied in Lillie's Bordello over the weekend with a host of famous faces including the NFL star Lance Briggs.
