She is hoping to say 'I Do' next year and TV presenter Lisa Cannon is considering copying Brian McFadden and Vogue Williams by hosting her nuptials at the same Italian venue.

The Xpose host and her other half, Welsh rugby player Richard Keatley, have been jet-setting around Europe in search of the perfect location for their 2015 wedding.

And Lisa (36) revealed to the Diary that luxurious Castello Di Vincigliata in Florence, where Brian and Vogue held their €200,000 bash in 2012, may have stolen her heart.

"I was blown away by Italy, there's no doubt about it. Brian and Vogue's wedding location was the last venue I went to see," she said.

"I only literally found out the other day when speaking to Brian that himself and Vogue got married there; but he was like, 'Just give Vogue a ring, she'll hook you up with what needs to be done'.

"I was like, 'Sounds good to me, easy planning', although the problem with me is I am so indecisive.

"I've seen some great spots and I also saw an awesome place in Florence, which was where George Clooney was at a wedding - it's tough," she said.

Lisa, who got engaged to her sports star fiance last October after three years together, has also been looking at France as part of her "wedding odyssey around Europe" to find perfect setting.

She even joked that if things become too stressful she may 'pull a Cheryl Cole' and get married under wraps in the Maldives, or opt for the Las Vegas route, like singer Sinead O'Connor.

"If all else fails, it's the drive through in Vegas; it's only $200 for the same result," she said.

Lisa is not the only one who is bowled over by the Italian countryside though.

Her Xpose co-host Karen Koster, as well as former Off The Rails anchor Caroline Morahan, wed there.

And it's looking likely that RTE weather girl Audrey McGrath (inset) will strongly consider getting hitched Italian-style.

"We're in the middle of planning all the intricate details and I would say we'll keep it an intimate affair in a small setting," Audrey told the Diary.

"I'm thinking about 80 people or so at the moment and we're looking abroad - we've fallen in love with Italy, I must say.

"I actually I learnt Italian in college for a year and it's just one of those things.

" I love the dancing, the food, all of that."
