Ireland will host a Love Island reunion this month with Bianca Gascoigne linking up with old flame Calum Best at a high-profile fashion event.

The reality television beauty is to jet into the capital within weeks for the West Coast Cooler Glamour Fashion Show.

The pair, who were crowned joint winners on the hit show, will be celebrity guests at the Radisson SAS hotel in Dublin on September 25.

It will be the first appearance in Ireland for Calum and Bianca, who became a hot item on Love Island before the 19-year-old fell back in the arms of fellow contestant Leo Ihenacho, of the band The Streets.

The pair, both linked to footballing heroes - Calum the son of George Best and Bianca the stepdaughter of Paul Gascoigne - will be interviewed live at the event by host Alan Hughes.

“I was a big Love Island fan,” said the TV3 Ireland AM presenter. “We used to review it every day on the morning show. Calum seemed such a nice guy

when I spoke to him and he is looking forward to coming over.”

“Bianca also came across as such a lovely girl on the show, everybody out there really liked her and although she seems to be going through some family troubles at the moment she seems to be coping very well,” he continued.

A series of celebrity guests will be at shows in the Radisson SAS Hotels in Dublin, Athlone, Cavan, Sligo, Letterkenny, Galway, Cork and Limerick during September and October.

As well as seeing fashions from boutiques and designers around the country, guests will be able to get top tips from Ireland's leading models and stylists.

Supermodel Caprice and Fair City's David Mitchell were just some of the well-known names who attended the event last year.
