Tv star Marty Morrissey has opened up about his failed attempt to chat up supermodel Cindy Crawford. 

The popular commentator (56) came face-to-face with the beauty while he reported for RTE at the Olympics in Athens back in 2004 – and made sure to make an impression!

When he spotted the American model, he desperately tried to get her attention, like many men before him, but he has admitted he now cringes when he looks back on how he did it.

I spotted Cindy Crawford a couple of metres away. I shouted, ‘Cindy, Cindy, Marty Morrissey, Irish television’,” the presenter told TV Now.

“I didn’t think she would’ve heard of RTE so I continued, ‘We’re from Ireland’, and she turns and purrs ‘Oh hi, I love Ireland’, and kept going.

“It was the worst chat-up line I ever had, I never used it again.”

Marty was recently forced to shoot down rumours that he is a ladies man, insisting he’s happily loved up in his long-term relationship with Cork woman Liz Kidney.

The GAA reporter, known as much for his charming ways as his year-long tan, has been branded with a talent for chatting up the ladies ever since he tried his Irish luck at interviewing Cindy and announced his “crush” on top model Georgia Salpa.

But Marty stated that he simply enjoys “banter” with both sexes and is in no way flirtatious in his intentions. “Look, I love a bit of fun, having a bit of craic. I wouldn’t consider myself a ladies’ man at all, far from it,” he said.
