A crush on Ed Sheeran and an ambition to be a penguin trainer are some of the disclosures from the model.

Who is your inappropriate celebrity crush?

Ed Sheeran. I don't know what it is about him but I met him once and my legs turned to jelly.

Your most embarrassing fashion moment?

I went to a big Irish event and when we sat down for dinner, the side of my dress split open! I had it tailored to be skin-tight but obviously forgot the extra sitting inches.

What childhood memory make you cringe? When I was younger I used to wear my camogie helmet to school when I cycled my bike. To me it was a great idea but I'd say I looked like a complete nutter.

What was your dream job as a kid?

Penguin trainer. I genuinely made my teacher look into how I could go about it and what qualifications I'd need. I'd still do it!

Do you have a secret talent?

I was an All-Ireland champion ballroom dancer for about nine years. Not many people knew that about me before now.

Your worst habit?

My ability to argue that I'm right even when I couldn't be more wrong. It's from my father's stubborn side of the family.
