Superslim Andrea's new look is in demand as she lands gem of a job

ANDREA Roche has revealed she has no plans to slow down her thriving modelling career.

The model has just signed a top new deal to be the face of new Irish jewellery company Diamant and the brunette recently shot her first ad campaign for the company.

Andrea has been busier than ever in the last few months, securing a number of top modelling jobs ahead of rivals, some 10 years her junior.

From photocalls to judging the best- dressed ladies competitions at race meetings across the country, Andrea is rumoured to currently be among the most bankable beauties on the modelling scene, earning up to €300 an hour.


The 31-year-old relaunched her career in front of the lens around the same time she announced the end of her four-year marriage to Citywest tycoon PJ Mansfield last March.

Speaking to the Herald, Andrea admitted she can't see herself lightening her workload in the near future.

"I'm busy," she said. "I like keeping busy. I've always worked hard. I'm the face of a new jewellery company in Ireland so I'm doing a lot with them and I've just shot a new campaign for them. I'm working with a company now called Diamant."

Meanwhile, Andrea revealed her slim figure is the result of an intensive new exercise regime.

The Tipperary business woman, who admitted to the Herald she is very happy at the moment, has dropped two dress sizes in the past few months.

Some reports suggested her trim figure was the result of stress caused by the end of her marriage.

But the brunette beauty, who was once known for her curves, has finally revealed the secret of her tiny size 6-8 is regular hardcore sessions in the gym with a personal trainer.

"I'm training with Dominic, he's a personal trainer and he's very, very good. I've been exercising now for the past year to year and a half."

The stunning model wowed onlookers when she showed off the results of all her hard work in a figure-hugging frock at the Sligo races this week.

But it's not all hard work for Andrea, who is jetting over to Las Vegas this month with her new beau Rob White to support her protegee Rozanna Purcell in the Miss Universe contest.
