Lynn makes a splash in raunchy water ad

FORMER Miss Universe Ireland Lynn Kelly looks set to make a name for herself across the water after being plucked from hundreds of hopefuls to front a new TV ad campaign for Deep RiverRock water alongside British glamour model Rosie Jones.

The Diary can reveal how Lynn has vamped up her image for the raunchy shoot, which shows her depicting a sexy builder.

Lynn (22) said filming for the ad took place over two days in Tinahely, Co Wicklow, last month and it has already been broadcast at home and in the UK during big audience events which included Channel 4's Friday night Big Brother evictions and a number of World Cup games.

"The RiverRock ad had a little bit of everything, from an old-age pensioner with a Mohawk to ballet bikers to myself and Rosie, who played sexy builders and basically wore bikinis and hardhats."

And Lynn added: "I was really lucky to get it as it has already opened up quite a few doors for me when it comes to getting other auditions for TV castings."

The leggy beauty, who is based in Dublin, is now contemplating a move to London -- if the opportunity arises.

She has also been busy offering reigning Miss Universe Ireland Rozanna Purcell advice on what to expect when she jets to Las Vegas next month for the pageant finals.

She had been hoping to jet out to the gambling mecca to show her support for her pal, but it coincides with her holidays to Cancun, Mexico, alongside her long-term boyfriend Robert Barr.
