Georgia ditches Big Apple plans for more hard work

Forget the bright lights of the Big Apple, gorgeous Georgia Salpa opted to ring in the New Year at home after being forced to pull out of her holiday to New York.

The Assets model had been due to jet off on a romantic couple's trip with her boyfriend Barry O'Brien as well as pals Nadia Forde (21) and her 98FM DJ beau Mark Noble.

But the Diary can reveal that Georgia (25) decided to ditch their holiday plans as she is far too busy.

"Georgia was supposed to be going to New York with Nadia and her boyfriend but they decided against the idea a few weeks ago.

"Georgia just didn't have the time to take another break. She's hoping to get away somewhere in a month or two instead when things settle down again," said a pal.

But it seems Georgia's absence hasn't put a dampener on Nadia's celebrations. The brunette has been shopping up a storm since arriving in the US as well as taking time to watch the spectacular fireworks display on Time's Square.

The group were also supposed to be joined by fellow model Sara Kavanagh (24) and her fitness expert boyfriend Alan Byrne, but they also cancelled due to work.
