Holly Carpenter has opened up about her new status as a dating expert.
The former Miss Ireland (23) has been single for the last year since splitting with rugby star Cian Healy and has joked about becoming Ireland's answer to Cilla Black in recent weeks.
Her breakdown of Snapchats for single girls went viral around the world with international publications including Playboy sharing it, and as a result, she's been inundated with romantic advice.
"It's funny because so many people have come to me asking me for advice but it's almost like the blind leading the blind because I'm no expert," she told the Irish Daily Mirror.
"I think a lot of people have a massive fear of rejection but I don't really think you need to have that.
"The worst thing that can happen is they will say no to you. I think guys these days are intimated by girls - they don't really know whether to ask them out or not but people need to go for it more and not worry about what other people think."
