RTE star Kathryn Thomas has opened up about her wedding plans and said she and her fiancé may tie the knot abroad.

The presenter became engaged to her restaurateur partner Padraig McLoughlin last year and said that the couple are considering a wedding in one of Kathryn’s favourite destinations.

Speaking to the Irish Independent’s Weekend magazine, Kathyrn said: "I have a love affair with Greece so I might have a big fat Greek wedding."

The Operation Transformation presenter admitted that there are no wedding plans in motion just yet and she is focusing on her bootcamp venture, Pure Results, which she says is proving successful.

"Creating positive results for people, that's what keeps me going," she said.

"People come to my camps for all sorts of reasons: some want to lose weight, some are getting married, going through a divorce, breast cancer, grief, and you go on that journey with them and you're part of that light-switch moment for them when they leave enlightened and more confident and ready to make changes.

"I'm able to show them that I've lived in a world where you push outside your comfort zone and you're rewarded for it even if it might scare the bejaysus out of you."

The Operation Transformation presenter said that although wedding plans have yet to be made, she is enjoying the happy buzz that surrounds any engagement, and joked that she's been a bit to kind to herself throughout the celebrations.

"I have well and truly fallen off the wagon," she joked.

She revealed how settling down and tying the knot was never a priority for her and she was happy as she was.

"I never saw marriage as an important thing for me. Over the last 10 years, it’s never been on the agenda and that was fine for me. Then when you’re with someone and they want to go down that route, very quickly you want to as well, without realising it yourself."

"Six or seven months ago he asked if I would be interested and that’s when we first started talking about it. Then I knew he wanted that so I started to think about it in a way I haven’t before," she said.
