IT'S one of her last nights as a single woman before walking down the aisle, but Rosanna Davison is hoping to steer clear of L plates and strippers at her upcoming hen party.

A wild bachelorette bash is a rite of passage for any bride-to-be and while she said she's gearing up for all kinds of surprises, the former Miss World insisted she wants it to be a "low key" affair.

Rosanna and her long-term partner Wesley Quirke will wed in June at the Atzaro hotel and spa in Ibiza.

Rosanna's other half took off to Galway for a stag do last week and the top model will be whisked away down the country for her own weekend of fun later this month.


"It was lovely to see him go off with all the lads. My two brothers went with them too which was nice and there was plenty of celebrating.

"Thankfully they're all back in one piece."

The blonde beauty will enjoy a few days with her best friend Brendan Rogers and 24 close pals.

"Hens are a bit tamer than stags, I think for guys it's about embarrassing the stag, but with hens it's more about pampering and having a giggle," she said.

"I'm really looking forward to it – I've no idea what's in store though. Things like L plates are not really my style and I don't think there will be a stripper.

"To be honest, I want to be able to remember it all, so instead of a nightclub it'll be more cocktails and dinner, with a bit of a dance."

Rosanna's mum Diane, as well as her future mother-in-law, will attend.

With her 30th birthday also around the corner, the daughter of singer Chris de Burgh told the Herald that she's glad the hen will take her mind off leaving her 20s behind her.

"I thought combining the two occasions would be a good idea, it kind of takes the sting out of turning 30," she said.
