Vogue Williams has admitted she has found it tough to find regular work in the UK.

The Howth woman, who splits her time between London and Dublin, reckons the industry is harder to break into on the other side of the Irish sea.

"It's a tough one to crack. Things are going well, but it does take a long time," she said.

"When I moved to Australia, it took me a year-and-a-half before I started getting any work. Now in London I'm getting work, but it does take a long time.

"I can't even imagine going to LA or something and starting from scratch again."

The 31-year-old believes her success in the TV industry will be all down to the people she gets to know.

"You go to things and meet people, it's all about being in the right place at the right time," said Vogue.

"You have to be talented, but you also have to be super lucky as well.

"There's a lot of meetings and pushing your own ideas forward. It's a lot of work."

Vogue has become a frequent target of the British paparazzi since she started dating Made In Chelsea star Spencer Matthews.

The pair met on Channel 4 series The Jump and have been inseparable ever since.

The former Fade Street star recently denied rum-ours they had moved in together to Spencer's west London flat.

Although they are discussing living together, Vogue said she likes having her own space for the time being.

With her profile on the rise, she is careful to avoid celebrity hotspots in London.

"I'm not going to go to Nobu because the paparazzi hang around places like that. You just need to be wise about where you go. They're not too invasive," she said.
