Well-heeled Georgina steps out in ¤23 bargain boots

SHE'S one of the most stylish women in Irish social circles -- but even Georgina Ahern can't resist a Penneys bargain.

The glamorous mum-of-two, who is married to Westlife singer and aspiring TV presenter Nicky Byrne, was happy to leave the designer heels at home and opt for more affordable boots during a recent stroll on Sutton beach.

Chart-topper Nicky (33) shared a picture of his stunning wife on his social networking page and fans were quick to react to Bertie's daughter's choice of ankle boots, which cost her only €23 at the popular high street retailer.

"Mrs [Byrne] out jogging on Sutton Beach today -- where's your Asics trainers!!" Nicky wrote online.

Georgina, who recently celebrated her twin boys' Jay and Rocco's fifth birthday, delighted fans when she revealed she still shops on the high street, despite being half of one of Ireland's most glamorous couples.

The duo, who did not attend this year's VIP Style Awards, are spending more time than ever together now that Nicky's chart-topping band is winding down.


Georgina recently admitted that she hates it when her hubby, who has signed up to host RTE series Football's Next Star, is on the road and is looking forward to having him at home more.

"I do really miss him when he's gone. When we were younger he used to be gone for really long periods of time on tour and that was hard, while lately I'm lucky because he only goes away for like a week or two," she said.

While the couple are staying practical with their wardrobe lately, Dubliner Nicky still likes to splash out on occasion.

He was spotted in February sporting a lavish Breitling Emergency watch worth a hefty €4,760, which is fitted with micro-transmitters designed to save the wearer if he or she is abducted.

Yvette Walsh, sales consultant from Weirs & Sons jewellers, told the Herald: "There is no other watch like it on the market, it's a very manly watch."
