Louise gets top job as Playboy Bunny - but now hard work starts

Model Louise Kavanagh has landed a spot in a prestigious hall of learning -- the Playboy Bunny school.

The sultry brunette only moved to the UK six months ago to pursue an international career, but she has already been reportedly offered one of the most sought-after modelling jobs in town.

It is understood that Louise (23) has been picked ahead of thousands of other exotic beauties to become a croupier bunny at the new Playboy Club in London opening this summer.

The leggy catwalk queen went through several casting rounds in order to get the coveted title.

However, she won't get a chance to wear the club's iconic uniform until she completes an intensive 10-week training programme.

"The Bunnies will provide members with the highest level of customer service to ensure that the Playboy experience is achieved at all times," said Playboy club director Adam Roberts, who is responsible for Bunny recruitment.

"They must be sophisticated, wholesome, attractive, intelligent and courteous," he added.

According to a source close to Louise, the Dublin native will have no trouble keeping up with the training.


"She's done an awful lot of that stuff [in Ireland] -- promoting clubs and so on -- so I'd imagine that she'd be very good in her new role," an insider told the Herald.

"And she's certainly not concerned about being scantily clad so that's the bottom line," the source added.

The party girl, who is still with Dublin modelling agency Assets, moved to the British capital last September where she lived for a short while with fellow Irish beauty Hayley Ryan.

Louise first made her name after competing in the Miss Universe contest in 2008.

The gorgeous young woman also dated Foxrock socialite Andy Quirke, brother of Rosanna's beau Wesley, for a year.

The new Playboy club venue will open in Mayfair on June 4.

The highly-anticipated launch will be attended by Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner and his model wife-to-be Crystal Harris, who are due to marry two weeks later. Many celebrities are expected to show up for the prestigious event.

The original London Playboy Club was shut 27 years ago after it was raided by police over suspected gambling irregularities.
