Marriage? It won't be this year says Daithi

RTE presenter Daithi O Se may be enjoying his romance with girlfriend Rita Talty -- but he is adamant he has no plans to walk down the aisle this year.

The man once voted Ireland's sexiest TV presenter has revealed how he and former Rose contestant Rita (26) below, attended some Yuletide nuptials on December 27, but says he has "no plans" to take the plunge himself.

"No, not at all. I'll leave that question for another while yet," he quipped.

"We're having a great time at the moment, it's an exciting time for us but we're seeing how it goes."

The Daily Show co-presenter (34) has also passed another crucial test too, having met nearly all of Rita's family over the festive season after her parents came back from America.

Former Rose of Tralee contestant Rita comes from an Irish-American family with business interests in New Jersey, including a pub chain.

"Rita's parents live in New Jersey but they have flown back here for Christmas, so we spent it down in Co Clare with them, with one of Rita's aunts.

"She makes the best buns in Ireland.

"Her cousin got married then on December 27, so we went to that."
