'I'm still friends with Cathal' - model Michele McGrath on having 'respect' for her ex
Michele McGrath revealed there are no hard feelings between her and ex-boyfriend, retired MMA fighter Cathal Pendred.
The pair split in 2016 after four years together, and managed to keep up their friendship in the wake of their break-up, but she's in no rush to jump back into another long-term romance.
"I am single at the moment but dating. I am still friends with Cathal. I think when you go out with someone for a long time, there's that level of respect and of course, I wish him the best in all that he does," she told the Irish Mail on Sunday magazine.
At the time, it was reported there were "no hard feelings" between the two and the relationship naturally ran its course.
McGrath is living life to the fullest, juggling a job in PR with freelance styling and an enviable social calendar, which involves lots of time spent on holidays with pals living around the world, including Marbella, where Georgia Penna lives with her husband Joe.
"We are all still the best of friends. We meet up and still have the craic," she said. "I think that's one thing I've been so lucky with in modelling. I got to meet some of my absolute best friends for life and we will always be best friends."
"I had a great time in Miami but I don't know whether I love it as much as I love California," she said.
"That is really my favourite place in the whole world."
