Sexy model Georgia Salpa
(26) revealed yesterday how she is smitten with her new London boyfriend.
The stunning Star columnist confirmed exclusively that she has been dating blond hunk Joe Penna for several months.
“I’m really happy,” she beamed, at the launch of her beauty range.
The handsome banker — who is recently separated — has been wooing the Dublin babe with romantic getaways and expensive gifts since she moved to the UK in January. “I’m dating and having a lot of fun,” giggled glam Georgia. She is expected to scoop a tidy six-figure profit from accessory range Eyes Like Georgia and Nails Like Georgia
, which hit the shelves in Ireland this week.
Now the half-Greek goddess plans to grow her own business empire — like fellow glamour model Katie Price. She said: “Business is definitely something I see myself doing when my modelling days end. I have a lot of female followers on Twitter, so I designed lashes and nails with them in mind,” Georgia explained.
So she eyed up what her legions of fans would like — and nailed her product line from that. “I designed something sexy and girly, but also affordable,” added Georgia, who plans to use Irish manufacturers and distributors. “I’m currently working with a really great company from Ashbourne called Sundrelle, who will distribute the products.”
The collection of falsies, on sale in Penneys, has styles called Catwalk, Temptress, Sultry, Covergirl, Desire and Goddess. Georgia’s business advisor is modelling boss Andrea Roche
. “She has helped me out loads and I look forward to expanding my product line, with her help,” said the Dublin beauty.
Earlier this year Georgia launched her own fashion range through Clothing.ie, and plans to create her own perfume. Her profile got another massive boost last month when she was named FHM’s 5th Sexiest Woman in the World. Since Celebrity Big Brother last year her work is mostly in the UK... and a fortune awaits if her glamour-model career takes off.
Former Page Three girl Katie Price
has amassed a €56m fortune from her reality-TV shows, books, perfumes and endorsements. “Katie Price is extremely hands-on and I could see myself like that in a couple of years’ time,” said ambitious Georgia. Asked if her brainy banker will be offering slick business advice, she batted her eyelashes and replied: “No, we’re just dating.”
