Nicky celebrates birthday with beach babe

Radio presenter Nicky Byrne celebrated his 36th birthday yesterday and naturally it couldn't go off without a few surprises.

His co-host Jenny Greene pulled out all the stops, managing to get him a shout out from Hugh Grant and a cardboard cut-out of a Baywatch babe.

"Just tell him that I love (him) and that I miss him," Hugh said to Jenny Greene.

But it seems Nicky wasn't too sure the actor would be too nice about him. "From what I remember he wasn't always a big fan of Westlife," Nicky said.

However after hearing his message, Nicky took it back. "What a nice man, I take it all back. Can I just say Hugh that I love and miss you too," he said.

The former Westlife singer later posted a picture of himself with a cardboard cut-out of ex-Baywatch babe Erika Eleniak.

"Thanks to @djjennygreene for Bday gift. And that @erikaeleniak for singin Happy Bday too," he wrote online. Erika later replied saying: "Wasn't that a fun day?"

Nicky also posted a picture of him as a newborn with his mother Yvonne.
