Today FM's Louise Duffy has revealed the advantages of having a fashion designer husband - she gets to wear his designs.

Former Kerry GAA star Paul Galvin recently launched  his second Vanguard collection for Dunnes Stores and Louise (31) said he had thrown himself into his design work.

"It's going great and they're already working on the next collection, so he's really enjoying it - and it means more clothes in our house now. Some of them I'm even getting away with, so I don't mind that at all," she said.

The couple wed in Louise's home town of Crossmolina, Co Mayo, on New Year's Eve, and she said it was "lovely" being married to her other half of three years.

"It's all going good. It feels like forever ago now," she said.

Far from having a house-husband in the wake of his retirement from inter-county football, Louise said there's rarely an idle moment for Paul.

"He's still so busy. He's got a new website now and he's with Dunnes so I'm seeing just enough of him," she said.

Louise, who recently ditched her smartphone for a week to "detox" from social media, said she found the break "blissful".

"We're so obsessed with our phones. I find when I wake up in the middle of the night I'm at it, as well as from morning until bed," she said.

"I vowed to stay off it as much as possible, but I've gone back to being as terrible as ever."

Asked about online trolling, Louise said she doesn't let it bother her.

"Everybody gets a bit of it, but I don't concern myself with it. It's not worth your time to consider those things," she said.

Louise was speaking at the launch of Aviva's new Price Lock promise campaign.
