While she’ll always be the ultimate shire babe, Lara Bingle has been house-hunting in the east since her return from New York.

An impromptu nosh-up with real estate guru John McGrath sent tittle-tats into overdrive, speculating Bingle was now moving on from Michael Clarke. All untrue – especially since McGrath has a long-time girlfriend.

‘‘John was friends of both mine and Michael’s for a long time – five or six years – and he and his team have kindly been helping me out,’’ Bingle tells S. ‘‘They’ve been so kind; it isn’t as easy to find a place in Sydney as I’d hoped.’’

Gosh, it’s lovely to see the ultimate fashion plate back on the scene. She’s destined to go from strength to strength now she has a few years in the spotlight up her sleeve. Let’s face it, the girl is stunning. And, having just signed internationally with Elite Model Management, there’s little doubt she’ll hook up with local representation soon. ‘‘It was good to have time away and get away from everything,’’ she smiles.
