Bressie & Georgia Salpa Top Valentine’s Most Wanted Poll

10th February 2012


Bressie is the new man of the moment with over 48% of Irish women wanting to get his number, according to a Valentine’s survey by 11850, Ireland’s original independent directory enquiry service. Whether you are all loved up this Valentine’s or still waiting for Mr./Mrs. right to come along—the poll shows who’s hot and who’s not.

Two Kerry hunks, Michael Fassbender, known for his “revealing” role in Shame and Paul Galvin still are doing it for the ladies. Ryan Tubridy and Anne Doyle came in last - they might not be hot in the poll but they shouldn’t be too upset as 27% of those surveyed had never been on a Valentine’s date before. Georgia Salpa’s number was in demand as a staggering 52% of men wanted to get her special digits. Katie Taylor didn’t put up much of a fight with only 12% of those surveyed wanted to woo the fighting fit lady.

Love will be blossoming at home this Valentine’s as couples opt for a romantic night in, rejecting the excesses of the Celtic Tiger times. The 11850 poll suggests that Irish couples are going back to basics with chocolates and flowers. Don’t be unlucky in love this year by giving chocolates that are out of date or gym membership—these gifts were received by over 18% of unlucky survey participants. For an easy life on February 14th make sure you spoil that special someone and reap the rewards on Valentine’s night.
