I'm not copying Georgia's love life on Salon -- Nadia

MODEL Nadia Forde has rubbished claims that she's following in Georgia Salpa's footsteps by dating her Celebrity Salon co-star.

The newly-single 23-year-old has said there's "no truth" to rumours doing the rounds that she has hooked up with the Geordie Shore hunk Greg Lake after meeting him on the TV3 programme.

Last year saw a sizzling romance developing between Georgia and bad-boy Calum Best after they met on the reality programme and they went on to date for more than three months.


However, Nadia has admitted that while there is "chemistry" between the pair, that it's far too early for any kind of romance to have developed.

A close pal explained: "There is definitely something there between them and it looks like Greg is definitely trying to get closer to Nadia. But she only met him last week, she doesn't know him that well and isn't going to start something in the middle of filming a programme.

"They get on very well, there's a bit of flirting going on, but Nadia is enjoying being single at the moment and concentrating on her career. After filming, it could be a different story but for now they're just friends.

"Everyone has been getting on great on the show and when you're spending that much time with someone, it's inevitable that things do develop. Last month saw Nadia going back on the market after her split from rugby player Luke Fitzgerald, whom she was dating for over a year."

Shortly afterwards, she signed up for Celebrity Salon alongside stars like Layla Flaherty, Glenda Gilson, Carol Anthony and Big Brother personality Nikki Grahame.


In a new twist, the group has been travelling around the country on a customised coach as they visit places like Galway and Sligo to show off their new-found talents in the beauty industry.

The celebrities have been learning all the tricks of the trade during the past 10 days and have been giving spray tans and waxing treatments to members of the public.

There's just a week of filming left to go before the show wraps for another series.

Last week saw Nikki Grahame suffering a bad fall and breaking her arm during a night out in Galway, saying she hopes the injury doesn't spoil her time on the programme.
