Virginia Macari will make a suprise visit to Dublin this week, when she attends the Peter Mark VIP Style Awards in the Marker Hotel on Friday night.
But perhaps an even biggest surprise is that on her arm that night will be her fiancé, Kaste Dahl.
Kaste was recently convicted of fraud in Norway, and in March was sentenced to two years and eight months in jail.
However, while the sentence is being appealed, the glamorous couple will jet in from Marbella to attend Ireland’s most glamorous event, at which Virginia has been a regular fixture over the years.
The presence of her fiancé will no doubt raise a few eyebrows, but Kaste insists that the reports of his imminent imprisonment are exaggerated, and there is more to the story than meets the eye.
“My lawyers are still working to resolve this,” he told the Sunday Independent. “What has been written is widely exaggerated. It is unlikely that I will have to serve any time in jail.”
Kaste has been living in Marbella with Virginia, and their three-year-old son Thor, for the past year, and will only arrive in Dublin on Friday afternoon, as Virginia is busy all this week preparing to launch her new swimwear collection in Spain.
Former Dublin Housewives star Virginia and Kaste have been together since 2009, and got engaged shortly after the birth of Thor in 2012.
