Revealed... why our sultry Sile is shy of the red carpet cameras

Sile Seoige has revealed she is not very confident about her own looks -- despite her sister being hailed as one of Ireland's most beautiful women.

The attractive brunette, who has been compared to Hollywood reality star Khloe Kardashian, has admitted she can be incredibly self conscious, especially when it comes to posing on the red carpet.

And despite appearing in several glamorous photoshoots for magazines, the TV-turned-radio presenter told the Herald that she hates having her picture taken.

"As somebody who works in the media, and okay, I'm on the telly, but I hate my photo being taken.

"I take my hat off to models because I think what they do is amazing, but I can't pose. I end up looking really awkward and then I look at a photo and think why did I stand like that. I look dreadful in photos."

However, Sile is unlikely to be too concerned about her image as the beautiful Galwegian is still loved up with her beau Kim Burrowes, a manager in RTE.

The couple have been together for more than a year after meeting in the Montrose, following Sile's separation from husband of three years Glen Mulcahy in January 2009.

The 32-year-old's modest comments come just a week after her older sister Grainne (36) stole the show from Christine Bleakley in publicity shots for their new ITV show Daybreak.

The sultry Gaelgoir stood out for her co-workers in a form fitting black and taupe frock, despite being in the back row of the show's group pictures.

The mum-of-one oozed natural beauty in her close-up shots, which put Tango-tanned Christine in the shade.
