Irish model and presenter Daniella Moyles may have left her breakfast radio show to turn a travelling blog, The Travel Two, into a full-time profession - but says she is one of a generation of millennials who need to be more mindful of mobile phone addiction. "I have to check myself quite a bit. Sometimes I could have days where I just aimlessly scroll all day long. If I add the amount of time together [I do it for] I'd probably die," she laughs. "It's so aimless, just refreshing apps all-day long. It's a crutch.

''It would have even been when I was on air sometimes. No question about it - it's an addiction."

But the 28-year-old says she is lucky she doesn't let heavily photoshopped images get her down.

"I am lucky enough to have a good sense of confidence. I'm glad it came along when I was a bit older. I can absolutely see how it could make you self-loathe - but I have a healthy outlook and can see it for what it is."
