Rob vows to reward workaholic Andrea with luxury holiday

THINGS are certainly heating up between top model Andrea Roche and her beau Rob White.

The Diary can reveal that the loved-up couple, who have only been together for a few months, are jetting off on another luxurious holiday.

The Miss Universe Ireland boss (32) has upped her work-load significantly since moving out of the home she shared with estranged husband PJ Mansfield.

The former Miss Ireland, who confirmed her split from the Citywest heir last March, began dating the well known 'It boy' Rob weeks after the surprising announcement.

And the Assets model, who is planning to open her own agency, has thrown herself back into the industry since the end of her marriage, appearing at dozens of photocalls for a reported €300 a pop.

The Tipperary businesswoman has also been working full steam ahead on finalising details of this year's Miss Universe Ireland contest, which will take place in the Wright Venue in Swords on July 9.


And a Diary source revealed that Rob is keen to whisk Andrea off to a top secret location once the contest is over as he feels she deserves a well earned break.

"Andrea has become a bit of a workaholic over the last few months and Rob wants to treat her by surprising her with a romantic trip away," the source said. "They are more in love than ever and he wants to reward her for all her hard work. Andrea has been taking her time to enjoy getting to know Rob properly and the early stages of their relationship. She thinks he's absolutely gorgeous and is totally smitten with him.

"He is great fun and they have loads in common. Things have definitely gotten more serious over the past month," the source added.

The businessman has a number of exotic locations in mind for their romantic holiday, according to our source.

"He is very spontaneous so he's hoping to take her somewhere special. It really depends on the amount of free time they can get because Andrea's schedule is very busy for the next couple of months.

"If they have to put their plans on hold, they will probably go to Spain for a week to chill out together."

Handsome Rob is the older brother of actress Holly White, who starred in RTE's hit TV series Dan & Becs, and he has been wining and dining Andrea at some of the city's best-known eateries since their relationship blossomed.

"He spoils her and is very attentive so she loves spending time with him," the source said.

Andrea, who said she was keen to keep her love life out of the limelight from now on, has stayed relatively tight-lipped on their relationship.

She previously insisted that she did not want to cause any hurt to her ex-husband, PJ, the son of Citywest tycoon, Jim Mansfield.
