I got shivers over bridal gown - Una

POP star Una Healy said that she had "shivers" the moment she saw the dress she will marry in.

The Irish singer is due to walk down the aisle later this month to exchange vows with England rugby star Ben Foden (26), the father of her baby daughter Aoife Belle.

Una (30) and Ben will wed in her hometown in Tipperary and will hold an exclusive, high-security reception at Kilshane House.

It's understood that the celebrity couple have inked a deal with a celebrity magazine.

Kilshane House, which dates back to 1822, is just three miles outside Tipperary town and management at the magnificently restored manor home have remained tight-lipped on the star-studded event.

But Una said that she knew exactly when she found 'the dress', even though she was sporting a big bump.

"I was seven months pregnant when I went dress shopping. When I found my wedding dress, my maid of honour was with me. I just went into a little shop with my friend," she said.

"I tried on two dresses and the third one was the one. The two of us had shivers and she said straight away that was the dress. It looked really nice on me even with the bump."

Una said that she tried on a few more dresses but didn't get the 'wow' feeling. "I kept it all low key. I literally only went to one shop, I did it all in one day," she revealed.

Una has asked a whopping six bridesmaids to help her on her big day -- all of the girls in the Saturdays, her best friend JoJo and her sister.

And she said that she expects her fiance Ben will be surprised at her choice of style.
