Rosanna Davison might seem like she has it all, but opened up about the pitfalls of fame - including self censorship.

After 10 years in the spotlight, the former Miss World has learned when to edit herself speaking publicly and when she can let her guard down. But the blonde beauty said she yearns for her teenage years, when she was more carefree.

"I would love to go back to the mind of my 18-year-old self because I was so carefree," she told the Sunday World magazine. "I did what I wanted, wore what I wanted and there was no self-censorship.

"When I was younger, I wasn't aware of my body or how I looked. As you age, you become so much more aware of your imperfections.

"You learn how to dress in a certain way, how to hide things - you just become so much more self conscious.

"I did mad things when I was young too, like at the UCD Fashion Show, when I wore tassels on my nipples. It looked great, but when I look back now I think 'Oh god'! I didn't think twice about doing that."

Davison, who recently qualified as a nutritional therapist, is enjoyed the next chapter of her career as a health guru and is currently celebrated the success of her first cookbook Eat Yourself Beautiful.

Her book is on its third run which will see more than 20,000 copies of the book sold on the Irish market.
