Hannah hooks up with Top Models for birthday bash

BRITAIN and Ireland's Next Top Model contestant Hannah Devane celebrated her 20th birthday with her former co-stars.

The model, who signed with Andrea Roche's agency after the show ended, took part in the Next Top Model live show in London this weekend, sharing the catwalk with this year's winner Jade Thompson.

The leggy model says meeting fans of the show over in London was surreal and told the Diary she felt like a full fledged celebrity.

"It really was mental over there. We did around 10 catwalk shows a day, with over 2,000 people there at a time which is huge. Whenever we went outside to look around at the event we were swamped with people.

"I always had people coming up to me and it was really nice having that feedback from the people that actually watched the show. It was nice to giving something back, there were loads of little kids coming up and asking for my autograph too.

"It was an amazing weekend, I really felt like a celebrity," she explained.

Hannah says she had an amazing time with the girls and partied hard.

"It was my birthday on Sunday and that night we had a massive after party at really amazing venue called Piccadilly Institute, it got wild. All the girls were there letting their hair down, it was great to be back again.

"It felt like we started just where we left off, like we had never left the show. So after flying back from London now I'm just going to rest up and spend some time with my family, no more wild parties this week," she said.
