Irish model turned singer Nadia Forde is ready to forgive and forget, and put her turbulent upbringing behind her.

Now based in London, she says her song ‘Haunted’ is more about acceptance then naming and shaming.

At thee age of seven, Nadia’s parents broke up and she lived between relatives' houses for the remainder of her childhood:

“There was a lot of movement when I was a kid, so I’d go between one aunty to another… It just got to the point where I couldn’t rely on them.. It’s a difficult situation but I definitely think it has made me the person that I am”.

The brunette told Barry Egan, “I wouldn’t change anything”.

Meanwhile, the 25-year-old continues to deny rumours that insinuate she is the reason behind golfer Rory McIlroy’s split from fiancé Caroline Wozniacki.

“Don’t believe everything you read and don’t believe everything you hear!”

Despite Paddy Power’s odds of 6-1 that the pair will soon become an item, she maintains:

“I’ve had some crazy things on Paddy Power about myself before and it is just…well, I think the story is more interesting in the papers and in the media than it actually is in real life. I wouldn’t be betting on me if I was anyone going into Paddy Power!”

Keen to break the American market, Nadia said men are not on her agenda right now.

When she finds someone to settle down with, she hopes it will be someone like her close male friends or brother who is a “great young man”.

And Nadia claims she hasn't been with someone sexually in a while.

“You know what they say about bananas?,” she laughed.

"They say never eat a banana while making eye-contact with someone.

"Oh, ages ago! [the last time I had sex], I'm single!"
