Izabela back in arms of her ex... but she is living with Breffny

Socialite Izabela Chudzicka is back in the arms of producer boyfriend John Norton in what will go down as one of the shortest break-ups in showbiz history.

The Diary can reveal how the couple have rekindled their romance in recent days after going their separate ways for a brief spell last month.

But Izabela (30) also has another man in her life, after becoming flatmates with former Apprentice star Breffny Morgan.

Izabela decided against moving back in with Straywave Media co-owner John, who is the brains behind RTE reality series Fade Street and Celebrity Salon.

Instead, the blonde beauty has taken up residence with the unlikely candidate from last year's TV3 series.

The pair have become firm friends in recent times and are now sharing a two-bedroom apartment in south Dublin.

Cork native Breffny had previously shared the flat with fellow Apprentice contestant Stephen Higgins, who has since moved home to Galway.

"It's all back on between Izabela and John," said a close pal. "They did take some time apart recently but they've decided to give it another go as they were both miserable apart.

"There was talk about Izabela dating Kamal Ibrahim, but they're definitely just friends. They were both guests at the same wedding and decided to go together.

"Izabela's now living with Breffny Morgan and they're getting on really well so she's going to stay there for the moment and see how things go with John.

"They were both devastated after the break-up and John in particular took it very badly. It looks like this time it's for good and no-one will be surprised if there's wedding bells on the cards for them in the near future," they added.

The loved-up couple's split came as a huge shock to those on Dublin's social circuit given that Izabela had organised a surprise party to celebrate her other half's 40th birthday just last October.

Among the guests who attended the white-themed bash at the Wright Venue, where Izabela worked at the time, was Virginia Macari, Maria Fusco, Geraldine O'Callaghan and Elaine Butler Doolin.

Up and coming producer John has previously dated Dundalk beauty Caroline Corr.

His glamorous girlfriend, meanwhile, has been living in Dublin since 2001 after making the move from Poland, and made a name for herself on the social scene after landing a gig as a TV presenter with Channel 6.
