Geordie playboy Greg back for his big birthday bash

LADIES, watch out. Geordie Shore and general playboy Greg Lake is flying into Dublin this weekend to celebrate his 27th birthday -- and the ladies man confirmed he's single and ready to mingle.

He's going to be pressing the flesh with all his Irish pals at the recently-opened Play nightclub on D'Olier Street as he lets his hair down in style.

Among those expected are some of his former Celebrity Salon stars including Nikki Grahame and Layla Flaherty.

Model Nadia Forde is also due to pop along and wish him well on the night -- but any hope of a romance between the pair has long since sizzled out.

The Newcastle reality star made a big play for the brown-eyed babe during the filming of the TV3 series as they got to know each other during the programme.

But given that she wasn't long out of a relationship from Leinster rugby star Luke Fitzgerald, Nadia made it clear that she wasn't looking for any new romances.

Obviously still fond of our Dublin ladies, flirty Greg says he finds Irish girls better looking than their English counterparts.

"Irish fans are just amazing. Everywhere you go they're right there, wanting things signed, getting in pictures -- they're a lot crazier than the English fans, definitely," he said.

"I have to admit, the girls in Ireland are so much better looking than girls in England. Maybe it's the girls I'm hanging out with but I can't complain."
