Yvonne Connolly has revealed she has no intention of remarrying after her divorce from ex-husband Ronan.

The pair were married for 14 years and split in 2011 before finalising their divorce in 2015.

She has been happily dating BAFTA-nominated cameraman John Conroy for the last four years and while she said they have a "great relationship", they won't be walking up the aisle or having more children.

"I don't see the need to get married at the moment. He works away a lot and my focus is my family. I love the bones of him, we have a great relationship.

"I miss him all the time and everything is perfect. I don't see any reason to change that," she told RSVP Magazine.

Yvonne has three children with her ex -  Jack (16), Missy (14) and Ali (10) - while her other half has six children from a previous relationship.

"We're not planning on having more children, we have nine between us. If you're going to bring up a family and you're young, then absolutely. But John and I still lead very independent lives."

The former model, who is carving out a career as a presenter with TV3's The Seven O'Clock Show, said she has a "great support network" around her and said she's a "more interesting" person to her children since she returned to the workforce.

"I think it's good for any person to have time for themselves too. There's no point in suffering guilt and feeling like you're not doing enough. I think if you're happy, your kids are happy."

Ronan wed tv producer Storm Uechtritz in Scotland last August.
