'Golf pros and tennis hoes': Holly's TV dig at McIlroy

Did you know that TV3 are filming a series of Celebrity Come Dine With Me? Well, you do now – but I guess that was the intention all along.

RORY MCILROY’S EX took a thinly-veiled swipe at the star and new love interest Caroline Wozniacki last night, hosting a TV dinner party with the theme of “golf pros and tennis hoes.”

The Irish Daily Mail reports that Assets model Holly Sweeney laughed off a text from the world number two asking her not to go through with the cheap dig, filmed as part of TV3′s forthcoming series of Celebrity Come Dine With Me.

McIlroy finally called time on his on again-off again romance with Sweeney, 20, earlier this year and started dating Danish tennis star Wozniacki shortly afterwards.

Sport’s new celebrity partnership have not been shy about flaunting their relationship, tweeting pictures of gifts to each other engraved with their “Wozzilroy” nickname.

But it seems Sweeney is less than thrilled with the couple’s public flirting and has taken the opportunity to score a cheap shot of her own.

“She was preparing the starter when her iPhone went off,” the Mail reports a show source as saying. “She just laughed it off and carried on cooking.”
