She previously told the Longford Leader : "I think the Irish scene is dated and most agencies are being run by former models.

"You have to be living in the bigger cities to even have a half a chance of getting work at all.

"The only bit of advice I would give is to take any opportunity, no matter how small it seems, and hope it leads to someone seeing your work outside the country."

Maura has set her sights on Tommy Fury, and her X-rated comments have been leaving fans in hysterics.

She said the hunky boxer, 20, gave her "fanny flutters" before they enjoyed a flirty date.

But friends say her outrageous comments are nothing new.


Her old boss told The Sun : "If you knew Maura, you wouldn't be shocked by this, neither will anyone around here because everyone in Longford knows how direct Maura is, when she wants something there is no beating around the bush.

"She is extremely driven."
