'I think it's so s****y that nobody's playing Nicky Byrne's Eurovision song' - Vogue Williams

Straight-talking Vogue Williams says she is shocked that our Eurovision entry has received so little airplay.
The 30-year-old described the reported refusal of rival radio stations to play 2fm star Nicky Byrne's Eurovision track Sunlight as "s****y".
The model has come out in defence of the former band-mate of estranged husband Brian McFadden, describing the move as "bizarre".
"What p***ed me off this week is that nobody is playing Nicky's song on Eurovision. I think that is so s****y. It's our Irish Eurovision song and nobody is playing it."
Vogue also revealed that she has come under fire for her recent defence of ex Brian's new group Boyzlife. She had suggested that Kian Egan's negative comments about the group had been born out of jealousy.
"People have an issue with the Kian thing. But I just don't care because that's what I think," she told the Herald Diary.
Brian and Vogue went their separate ways last summer after three years of marriage, but are still regularly in contact and share the care of their dog, Wilson.
London-based Vogue is busy working on her next business venture - a fitness and beauty bootcamp that she hopes to launch in the UK and Ireland this summer.
Vogue told the Diary that she is developing the bootcamp programme with a well-known fitness coach in the UK and will be unveiling details of all the dates and venues in the coming weeks.
The single day and weekend camps will take place in the UK, but will also be on offer in hotels in Dublin.
"We're going to do hair and make-up at night and nutritional talks, so there will be many other aspects," Vogue said.
"It's going to be in the UK, but in Ireland as well, because a lot of my followers are here. Loads of people are into the videos I do, so the bootcamp will be about people going home with a different mindset about nutrition and training."
Vogue said her bootcamp won't rival the Pure Results camp set up by pal Kathryn Thomas, as there is plenty of room in the market.
"There's plenty of room for all of us," she said. "I'll probably just do Dublin first and then think about the rest of the country."
Howth native Vogue was home yesterday to help launch the Italian restaurant Zizzi at the Dundrum Town Centre - which is the chain's first in Ireland.
"Pizza would be my cheat meal," said Vogue.
