I'm calling it Al-An-On – a sort of totally trendy hip-hop romance. No, of course I'm not, But it is all on between Alli (Mac Donnell) and Andy (Mann). In fact it's more than on – it's hot.

She is one of the nation's top models and a regular on TV3's Ireland AM and he is a trendy singer and I will resist the urge to say they have been making sweet music together. On a romantic break away from it all in the Canaries.

Andrew – who sang on The Voice Of Ireland last year and was among the final five artists on that infamous Late Late Show showdown earlier this year for the 2014 Eurovision – and Alli are love's young dream.

"I'm an old wan," laughed 32 year old Alli, who was engaged to Dr Mark Dempsey in 2012 and before that dated Ivano Cafollo, "but I am incredibly busy with work – and with my love life."

"Andrew and I are totally loved-up. We're just enjoying it," said Alli who was on the cover of LIFE magazine – avec moi – in 2008. "I totally think that he is The One for me. I met him at a show in the Tivoli a year and a half ago. He was singing at it and I was modelling. I did my best Tina Turner backstage and he was smitten."

So smitten in fact that they going away with Alli's kids, Alex, Sara and Harry "to Lanzarote in August."

Some like it even hotter.
