Top model Lynn Kelly has been with her boyfriend Robert for almost a decade, but has no plans to walk up the aisle any time soon.

The former Miss Universe Ireland has been with her beau since her teens but says marriage is not a priority at the moment.

"I don't think it will happen in the near future. I would never say never but it's just not a big thing with my family," she told the Diary.

"My parents aren't married, Robert's aren't either - it's not a big thing for us. We've got more important things to be focusing on at the minute.

"I do think it will happen. We're together 10 years and he is my best friend but we'll see what happens.

"What will be will be, what's meant for you will never pass you by and I'm a big believer in that," she added.

Lynn revealed her secret to a happy relationship is leaving work at the door.

"Robert works in IT recruitment and we just don't talk about work. Work is work, he leaves it in the office and I leave it wherever my office might be," she said.

"I'm not really that interested in what he does. It's boring to me and he feels the exact same way about what I do, so he knows I'm at shoots but he doesn't know what I'm doing.

"It just works for us, we won't be doing any red carpet appearances together any time soon, that's for sure," she laughed.


While she's super busy with work here, Lynn (26) also revealed that she's been signed by a modelling agency abroad.

"I have an agency over in the UK which I've only recently signed with, called the Model Bank, but I've to send Polaroids to another one this week so fingers crossed it works out," she said.

"I wouldn't move there because things are too good here but I'm there for direct bookings which is fine.

"It's only an hour's flight away so you can go over and back in the same day, it's fine," she added.

Lynn was on hand to announce that Great Lengths Hair Extensions will host its inaugural Great Lengths Awards in Dublin on Monday, May 11, at Fade Street Social.

The awards will celebrate the top hairdressing talent in Ireland and will feature eight categories, covering different strands of beautiful hair extension transformations.

Great Lengths certified stylists from around the country can submit their entries until the closing date on Friday, March 20, at 6pm.
