I'm now allergic to kissing men jokes single girl Michele

Top beauty Michele McGrath is back on the market -- but has no intention of being snapped up again any time soon.

Her recent split from hunky rugby boyfriend Mark Siddons has given a number of eager suitors on the Dublin scene some hope.

However, the 25-year-old told the Diary that she's "allergic to men at the moment".

"No I'm not seeing anyone else. I'm 100pc single. I think I've got a kissing phobia," she said.

Three months ago saw her deciding to call time on her romance with the Welsh-born rugby player, who is now based in Rome playing for a team there. The couple decided it was just too hard to keep things going, given the distance between them -- and she's now determined to concentrate on her career. A hostess in Bucks Townhouse, her job has been taken over this week by pals Jodie Wood and Hayley Ryan after she flew over to London to spent the week with her good friend Georgia Salpa, who has now made the city her new base.

This evening will see the pair attending a private gig where Jessie J will be the star performer -- Michele is a "huge fan" of The Voice star.


However, the well-known model has also lashed out at the city's "aggressive" paparazzi culture after witnessing a bizarre incident in London.

She was left shocked after witnessing a late-night tussle between an onlooker and a photographer after he attempted to snap her and Celebrity Big Brother star Georgia. The two brunettes were leaving a Visual Arts Club in London when the man became embroiled in a physical spat with a photographer.

Two policeman had to wrestle him to the ground before marching him from the scene.

"It was a bit overwhelming, alright, as the guy just jumped out and started getting in a fight with the photographer. We didn't know the guy at all and it's just not something you'd expect to see on a night out. They're just a bit crazy over in London," she said.

"It's not like in Dublin where the photographers are so much nicer as they all know you by name.

"For Georgia, it's all a bit much as it's completely different to what she and the other Irish models would have been used to."

A source has revealed how the half-Greek model is now considering hiring a private body guard for nights out as her profile has increased so much.

She was the victim of a stalker last month with the attention becoming so bad that she was forced to report it to police after she received calls at her new London apartment.
