Dublin will be a less glamorous place this week as some of our top models have flown off to sunnier climes.

Karena Graham and Michele McGrath (both 27) have gone to Marbella for a whistle-stop holiday.

The two Bucks Townhouse hostesses (inset) are off on their annual jaunt to the millionaires' playground where they'll meet up with Georgia Salpa (28).

They're also due to be joined by Hayley Ryan as they turn heads in the party resort.

Half-Greek Georgia, who recently featured in lads mag FHM, has been dividing her time between Spain and London where she lives with fiance Joe Penna.

She regularly invites her model pals over to Marbella to stay in the plush villa she shares with Joe.


"She's still really close to all her pals back home, and while she's settled into her new life nothing beats seeing friends that you've known for years," said a pal.

"Joe has a gorgeous place out there with loads of room, so it's a perfect place for all the girls to stay and have a proper catch-up."

Also over there this week are Bucks manager Richard McDermott and his wife and celebrity snapper Brian McEvoy and his wife, Karen.

However, it seems it's not all fun for the girls while they're over there. They're also doing a photo shoot for Bucks Townhouse to mark the start of its summer programme of events.


First up is The Wire star Idris Elba, who'll be at the club this Saturday to indulge in his passion for music and DJ for revellers.

Busy host Michele, who also stars in panto every year, has been working in the Leeson Street club since it first opened its doors in 2010.

Well-used to meeting and greeting the city's VIPs, she recently took to the stage herself for a stint in Women of Letters earlier this month.

And it was her own boyfriend, Cathal Pendred, who hit the headlines over the weekend after showing his love for animals.

He was pictured wading through the waves at Doonbeg in Co Clare after rescuing a baby dolphin that had washed up on the beach.

The mixed martial arts star spent an hour trying to take the distressed mammal out into deeper waters.

But he later revealed on Twitter: "Sad news: The Irish Whale & Dolphin Group have said that the young dolphin washed up in Doonbeg again last night. I tried my best."
