Love/Hate's Aoibhinn has lightened up

THEY say that blondes have more fun and Love/Hate actress Aoibhinn McGinnity certainly hopes it's the case.

The Monaghan native has ditched her trademark dark locks for honey-coloured tresses for the latest series of RTE's drama.

"It took a while to get used to," she told The Diary. "But now I'm really liking it, I hope blondes do have more fun – I'm having a laugh with it," she smiled.

But having golden hair isn't all fun and games.


"It's really hard work to keep it looking like this so that's a bad thing."

It certainly looks like the young actress is having a good time, when she's not busy filming the next season of the gangland drama, Aoibhinn is hitting the social scene with her fellow Love/Haters.

"Yeah, we all get on really well. We're all mates at this stage – which is great. We head out together whenever we can."

And once she's wrapped the series she's planning on heading to the beaches of Thailand with friends.
