MANILA -- Model Mikael Daez confirmed that he meet up with Miss World 2013 Megan Young during his recent trip in London.


In an interview with the actor on Wednesday evening, he said it was a brief meeting because he was actually on tour and was busy taping episodes for his mini food show "Midnight Snack".

Megan, on the other hand, was on her way to work.

"I just asked her where should I eat. She didn't know (any restaurant) because she didn't eat out a lot."

The two are constantly linked to each other even before Megan joined Miss World-Philippines. But both camps denied the rumors.

"She's Miss World and people have been trying to link me and her together. We are not together. I'm single and she's single... from what I know."

Mikael shared he's good friends with Megan and they still communicate from time to time even though the beauty queen now resides in London.

As a testament of their closeness, the actor confirmed that he knew of Megan's accident in Haiti even before it made headlines in Manila.

"I knew about it already and I know she's okay. We're good. Nothing has changed over the past years. We're still friends," he said.

He's also proud of what she has achieved in the Miss World competition.

"(I’m) very proud. Just as proud as every Filipino out there because she represented the Philippines, our country," he added.

When asked if he misses Megan now that she's living abroad, Mikael said he's focused with work and very busy juggling three shows.

"When it comes to being sentimental, it's not in my personality. I don't really think about it. Truth to be told, I'm very in love with my work. For someone to have three shows right now all at the same time, you should love your work or you'll probably have a mental breakdown."

Aside from "Midnight Snack," he's also part of gag show "Bubble Gang" and the upcoming primetime program "Adarna."

The actor is also excited with the newest fantaserye as it's his first time to do a program in this kind of genre. He will work opposite Kapuso actors Benjamin Alves, Kylie Padilla and Geoff Eigenmann.

"I'm excited because costume pa lang and production value are amazing. Nagulat talaga ako. We have a great team who actually knows what they are doing."
