The Wexford native, who shot to prominence on Celebrity Big Brother in the UK, was in the running for a lucrative slot on ITV's I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! and while the official cast has been announced, it's not exactly a bad time to be Hazel.

Hazel has been teasing fans on her Twitter with photos of her enjoying a sun holiday, although it's unclear whether her new boyfriend Danny Simpson is planning on joining her.

"Off out to the pool to top up my tan in paradise!! It's a hard life," she wrote on her acocunt, accompanied by a photo of her in a bikini.
