I owe it all to Elle but we'll never meet -- Hannah

FORMER Britan and Ireland's Next Top Model contestant Hannah Devane admits she has no plans to meet supermodel mentor Elle Macpherson again.

The Aussie model spotted the Dubliner while she was shopping in Brown Thomas and took her through to the final series of her reality TV programme.

Since she was eliminated from the show, Hannah has been signed by Andrea Roche's agency.

However, the 20-year-old has admitted it is highly unlikely herself and Elle will ever cross paths again.

"I will probably never meet Elle again, but I'll definitely try and pop back into Brown Thomas the next time she's in," she joked.

"It's really good that Elle actually came to Ireland at all because Irish models can definitely be overlooked at times," she told the Diary.

While no longer under Elle's wing, the UCD student is still managing to get modelling assignments every day.

"It's brilliant -- Andrea Roche has me working every day at the moment. It's great that I can model full time now and do fashion shoots, that's always been the dream."

And her foray into reality TV looks set to continue as she is being tipped for a role as a "mentor" in a new series on Irish modelling.

"I think the modelling shows are brilliant for Ireland. I definitely think we have some hidden gems here. No matter where you are, iindustry experts giving their opinions and helping you out, you can't really ask for a better opportunity."
