Partying Andrea and her Mr White show their love is Electric

Andrea Roche showed she is more in love than ever at this year's Electric Picnic.

The former Miss Ireland was spotted partying alongside her hunky beau of seven months Rob White (31) at the music festival.

And the besotted couple were joined by Rob's younger sister, Dan & Becs actress Holly White (29) and her new boyfriend Michael Price, a personal trainer.

The foursome were among the more well-known revellers that opted to settle into the VIP surroundings of the Bacardi bar.

Things look to be going from strength to strength for Andrea and Rob, who are now regularly spotted on the social scene after their initial bid to keep their relationship under wraps following her split from husband PJ Mansfield in March.

The fashionista, who also regularly appears as a stylist on Ireland AM, told the Diary the group had a fantastic time soaking up the atmosphere in Stradbally.

Andrea was also kept busy at the event as she was on hand to judge the best dressed at the Bacardi's novel 1920s-style party.

"They went all out considering a lot of them are camping so that made it difficult for them but there were some great costumes," she said.

"I've had a really good time. We got to see Hot Chick, Two Many DJs and The Frames. It's been a great weekend," she added.

Andrea and Rob attended the festival on Saturday and yesterday but the couple avoided the muddy campsites in favour of staying in the exclusive Heritage Hotel in nearby Portlaoise.

However, Andrea laughed off suggestions she was too posh to camp.

"I would be up for camping but I'm staying in the Heritage hotel because I was working yesterday at the Leopardstown Races. I've never camped but I would have been up for it this year," she added.

It was a busy weekend for the 32-year-old brunette. She joined her protege Roz Purcell at the races on Saturday to judge the best-dressed attendees.

Andrea revealed she was thrilled at the success of her latest Miss Universe Ireland and was already looking forward to discovering the country's next biggest star.

"I think it took me a while to get Miss Universe known in Ireland just because Miss World was kind of known a little bit better but I think now everybody knows what it is, who Donald Trump is, and the opportunities that are there.

"I'm going to have it a little bit earlier this year and already there is huge interest in it.

"I'm lucky to be doing a job that I adore. I love it, I'm passionate about it and I know it inside out so it doesn't really feel like work."
