Jennifer's delighted as beau plans move here

RTE'S newest recruit Jennifer Maguire may have signed up to play Cupid by helping singletons to find love -- but off camera she is preparing to move her own romance up a gear.

The Diary can reveal how the former Apprentice star and her long distance boyfriend, Lau Zamparelli, are ready to take the next step, with the hunky Italian actor set to make a permanent move to Dublin.

Jennifer (29), who has been dating Lau for four years after first meeting in Bristol, where she set up her own theatre company, admits she's very excited about the prospect of planning their future together here in Ireland.

"It's all going really well with Lau and I," she explained. "He's actually looking into moving over here in the next couple of months so we'll finally be living in the same country.

"He has a couple of things to sort out, but hopefully it won't take too long.

"I'm very excited because we've almost always lived apart. Although we're so used to the long distance now that we'll probably kill each other when we live so close." .
