Here's what the whole cast of Tallafornia is up to now

Five eggs per bloke per day.

TALLAFORNIA IS BACK in the spotlight after Philly’s appearance on First Dates Ireland.

So we know what he’s up to, but what did the rest of the beloved cast get up to when they left our screen back in 2012?

We did the best digging we could.

Jay Abbey


Remember the male stripper, Jay Abbey? There wasn’t a 21st in Dublin that wasn’t attended by this man, shoving a banana in various faces.

Jay is doing quite well for himself these days, and owns gyms in Go Gym in Greystones with fellow Tallafornia man Dave Behan.

Fair play.

Phil Penny

We all know what Phil is doing these days. He’s appearing on First Dates, of course.

Phil previously told The Irish Mirror that he has ‘no regrets’ starring in the show, despite trolls online saying they wish he would die.

Other than that, he says he’s a personal trainer. We’ll take his word for it.

Cormac Branagan

The Corminator initially started driving his taxi again, but claimed being on the show ruined business.

He’s now not doing a whole lot by the looks of it, other than some personal appearances and selling Corminator merch.

The Irish Mirror reported back in 2013 that he was demanding cash to talk about the show in any context.

He’s staying at the gym, at least. Five eggs per day, no doubt.

Kelly Donegan


Ah Kelly. Remember her? The model slash columnist for Blanchardstown magazine?

She’s come a long way. She’s now a proper personal trainer and weightloss consultant, and even wrote a book called Build Your Own Body.

Dave Behan


Dave, as we mentioned earlier, owns gyms with Jay. He’s also engaged to fitness influencer, Leanne Moore. Do your thing, Dave.

Nikita Murray

Nikita needed to shut her face, she’s 19.

We loved Nikita and her mad antics. She’s expressed regret at appearing on the show,and appeared on the second series sober. She’s kept out of the limelight since and seems to be working in a bank.

Natalie Geraghty

Where oh where is Natalie? She appears to work for a website now, and we hope she’s happy.

Marc O’Neill

Marc, of course, appeared on season 16 of Big Brother. He was pretty popular on it, and got a bit of PA work out of it. However, he’s since taken the most drastic change of career of all. Marc graduated from Maynooth University with a first class honours degree in Organic Chemistry and Molecular Biology in 2015.

He told OK! magazine that he planned on moving to the US to start a new life, and wasn’t interested in becoming a Z List celebrity.

However, it seems he’s currently a research assistant at the UCD School of Medicine.
