Pippa laughs off Rosie prank

TOP model Pippa O'Connor insists there are no hard feelings between her and former Miss World Rosanna Davison after she found herself duped by the gorgeous daughter of Chris de Burgh for RTE TV show Anonymous.

Pippa (26) explained how she was asked to give aspiring model "Aideen Cowley" -- the heavily disguised Rosanna -- some tips on how to become a successful beauty queen.

However, the Kildare beauty, who is living it up in London this week alongside fiance Brian Ormond, says she smelled a rat when her aspiring protege attempted to strut up and down the runway.

"It was so funny, Rosie was great," Pippa explained. "I really hadn't a clue until I was asked to show her to walk.

"I thought that was a bit weird and embarrassing so I asked her to show me first. Then I thought 'OK, this can't be real -- the state of her.'

"So I said: 'Is this a joke?' She looked so different, not at all her normal self."

Pippa said she was been making great use of her credit card since jetting over on Monday with her hubby-to-be Brian, who is hoping to pin down some presenting work across the water.

The model's good pal Rosie had also been due to join her in London this week, where she was set to join a film crew at a number of fashion week events.

The beauty queen had to pull out, however, after breaking her wrist recently when she fell in a friend's apartment.
