Irish model Nadia Forde raised eyebrows when she was seen leaving a Dublin bar with golfer Rory McIlroy at 3.00am in the morning, shortly after his split with fiancée Caroline Wozniacki. So what's going on with the pair?

While the 25-year-old model and wannabe pop star star hasn't exactly give away too much about her relationship/friendship with Mcllroy, she has given an insight into how the pair met.

Speaking to the Sunday People, Nadia said: “I met Rory last year through friends. He’s a lovely guy. The bottom line with me and Rory is we have ­mutual friends who introduced us and we’ve been in each other’s company.”

When asked if the 25-year-old Northern Irish golf star was her type, Nadia added: "I don’t really have a type, to be honest with you.”

Forde says that if a man wanted to arouse her interest he would have to be “a bit of a cheeky chappie who makes me laugh . . . a guy with a twinkle in his eye”.

“For me it’s not about looks. It’s about the person," she says. “I think whoever I end up with I will be friends with first. The important thing is having ­somebody with ambition and drive who is hard-working. That for me is a massive turn-on.”

Rory McIlroy called off his his engagement to Caroline Wozniacki in May
