Kamal says Noirin's 'just a good friend'

The budding romance between Mr World Kamal Ibrahim and reality star Noirin Kelly appears to have been short-lived.

Despite appearing closer than ever when they attended the first birthday celebrations of Mantra nightclub in Maynooth together last Friday, Limerick-born Kamal has dashed all hopes of a romance between the pair.

While Big Brother contestant Noirin has made no secret of her desire to nab the male model as her new beau, Kamal has firmly ruled out any chance of a relationship with the Cabinteely beauty.

"Noirin and I do have a blossoming friendship as we share a few things in common but we are not in any sort of relationship," he told the Diary.

"I am quite fond of Noirin and I think she's a great person, but the feeling is strictly platonic.

"We attended a few events together and after being seen out together it has obviously sparked the rumours."

Other guests in attendance at the white-themed event included Xpose's Glenda Gilson, who was more loved-up than ever with her new beau Rob McNaughton on the night that her ex, Brian O'Driscoll, was celebrating his wedding with actress Amy Huberman.

Other guests decked out in white for the Riviera party included PR guru Valerie Roe, Azi Jegbefume, Louise Kavanagh, Georgia Salpa and Coronation Street star Kate Ford.
