Sara's business plans shape up

TOP model Sara Kavanagh clearly isn't put off by the view that you should never mix business with pleasure.

The blonde beauty (22) is going full steam ahead with her plans to set up an exclusive new beauty and fitness salon with her gym instructor beau, Alan Byrne.

The loved-up couple, who have been together for less than a year, have just finalised details of their new Sandyford business venture and were given the keys to their new establishment this week.

A source close to the model revealed: "Sara is absolutely delighted.

"Things happened to fall into place much quicker than originally planned and they got the keys to their new building in Sandyford this week.

"She and Alan are very excited about their new business. They are the perfect combination. Sara knows all there is to know about beauty, while Alan is obviously very well known as one of Ireland's top fitness instructors.

"They've been planning this for ages and it's great to see them getting it off the ground."

Sara is said to be planning to take a break from her hosting duties at The Bucks New Townhouse to concentrate all her energy on her and Alan's new business.

But her co-host pal Michele McGrath needn't worry as loads of her top modelling pals are eager to fill Sara's shoes, including Hayley Ryan, who will be the first to take over from Sara when she hangs up her hosting heels.
