Former Glasgow girl Baroness Michelle Mone of Mayfair has been cosying up with UFC World Champion Conor McGregor while on a trip to Ireland.

The Tory peer and bra tycoon was speaking at the Pendulum Summit in Dublin on Thursday which brings together leading business and self-empowerment speakers.

After the event, the 46-year-old, mum-of-three posted a series of snaps from her time in the city, including one alongside Virgin boss Richard Branson, which she posted on Twitter.

She wrote: “Bye, Dublin. You were the best audience! I feel I met all 7,000 of you. Thanks so much for my ‘lifetime achievement award’. See you all soon.”

She also posed for a picture alongside 29-year-old McGregor. Fists in the air, she wrote: “Totally love this guy!!”

While many followers praised Mone for delivering a strong speech, some users of the site were quick to hit out at the pairing.

“Oh good GRIEF,” was one comment, as another user said: “Conor is not who he used to be. Power and money have corrupted him.”
