Noirin returns to her African roots to shoot documentary

REALITY star Noirin Kelly is set to return to her Kenyan roots this summer when she films a new documentary series which will explore her family history.

The former Big Brother star explained how she and her close pal, Azi Jegbefume -- whom she describes as a cousin -- are hoping to fit in a trip to east Africa in the coming months, during which they will be accompanied by the TV cameras.

The Cabinteely beauty (27) told the Diary how she has not seen members of her extended family in 20 years and is looking forward to exploring her parents' heritage.

"I haven't been there since I was a young child so it's very exciting," she explained. "I particularly can't wait to see my grandmother.

"It hasn't been confirmed yet which station will air it but it will probably be Living TV."

The BScene model is also in talks about starring in a second TV show, which will follow her as she goes under the knife to have breast implants.

Noirin, who was recently linked to Mr World Kamal Ibrahim, says she's thoroughly enjoying the single life -- and is even planning a trip to the States to visit her ex-boyfriend Isaac Stout in September.

But she ruled out any chance of a reconciliation between the pair -- insisting that they have realised they're better off just being friends.
