The Midday host attended her debs 21 years ago and said she had to recruit a friend as her date at the last minute after her boyfriend dumped her just weeks before the event.

Crowley spoke with her trademark candour about the debs, which will be kicking off at Irish secondary schools in August.

"I brought my sister's boyfriend's brother. He very kindly stood in because the guy i was going out with at the time dumped me two weeks before. His excuse was he had to pay the car insurance and couldn't afford to go the debs," she told RSVP Magazine.

The brunette beauty also showed off her style skills early on and  creating her own dress.

"I actually think my debs dress was lovely," she added. "I made it myself with the help of my sister. I picked out the fabric and the pattern and my sister did design in college so she gave me advice as well. It was a floor length, bottle green velvet dress with a sweetheart neckline and long sleeves and I wore a pearl choker with it, which was all the range back then!"

She added that the night was a "little bit of an anti climax".
