I can't move to Ireland to be with Rory -- it's much too cold, reveals Caroline

TENNIS star Caroline Wozniacki may have scored a sizzling romance with our own golfing hero Rory McIlroy but she won't be moving to Ireland for him.

The Danish girl has revealed to the Herald that she would never move here -- because of the weather.

The super-talented pair have been dating for a year now and are quickly become the top celebrity couple in sports circles.

"I love Ireland, I've been over there many times but I wouldn't live there. It's too cold for one thing," Caroline (21) said.

However, that hasn't stopped her adopting a little bit of an Irish lilt herself, which is clearly thanks to her Co Down boyfriend.


"I know, everyone has been saying that I have an Irish accent now, it has rubbed off on me but I don't think my accent has rubbed off on him," Caroline added.

And she added how she's hoping that her other half may fly over from Ireland once he's finished playing in the Irish Open tournament to cheer her on at Wimbledon in London.

"He's coming over for the second week, hopefully. I was talking to him earlier and he's getting on great.

"He's back home now and getting ready for the tournament, so all's good," she continued.

The former world number one was flying solo at a bash in London's exclusive Kensington Roof Gardens on Thursday night as she enjoyed a night out without her 32-year-old other half.

She was turning heads at the party clad in a black, Stella McCartney mini-dress at the Experia Sony pre-Wimbledon event, with the tournament kicking off on Monday.

And she revealed that while she was definitely not drinking any alcohol at the booze-filled bash, she was looking forward to tucking in the food.

"I'm absolutely starving so I came out to get something from the barbecue but there won't be any alcohol for me. I'm training in the morning," she added.

The VIP bash thrown by airline mogul Sir Richard Branson was awash with familiar faces from the world of sports and entertainment who toasted the start of the popular tennis tournament.

Attendees included Wimbledon champs Serena and sister Venus Williams, Maria Sharapova and Elena Vesnina.

Also there was MTV beauty Laura Whitmore with boyfriend Danny O'Reilly from the Coronas alongside lingerie mogul Caprice and Elen Rives.

Showbiz couple Professor Green and reality TV star Millie Mackintosh added some extra glamour to the party.


Over in Dublin recently for a performance at RTE's Voice of Ireland, Made In Chelsea star Millie revealed how she fell in love with the capital city.

And she said she's hoping to film an episode of the E4 show over here.

"I absolutely loved Dublin when I was there. We ate in fantastic place called Crackbird. I'm hoping to go back shortly and film some scenes there for the programme," she explained.

Other attendees included Eastenders star Scott Maslen alongside TV presenter and model Lizzie Cundy.
