Roz dumps Bressie so she can take her sister to glitzy VIP awards bash

ROZ Purcell and Niall Breslin may be one of Ireland's hottest couples, but the top model will be snubbing her boyfriend in favour of her sister at an awards bash next month.

The Tipperary native has been given the nod in the Most Stylish Woman category at the Peter Mark VIP Style Awards.

However, she revealed she'll be taking her sister along as her date on the evening instead of her Voice of Ireland star boyfriend.

The pair, who have been dating for two years, prefer to keep their relationship private and rarely attend big events together.

Speaking about being nominated, Purcell said: "It's just one night and you shouldn't care about whether you win or not. I just want to go and have fun because I never get to go out ever. I'm such a granny, so I'm just looking at it like, 'Oh party night'."

The super-healthy beauty won't be over-indulging in any of the free booze, though.


"I don't really drink anyway, so it's not really a big deal to me. I'm just looking at it as a fun night. It's a bit of craic and I'll be with all the girls, my friends, who I only ever see in work. It will be nice to let loose," she said.

Although she and Bressie are both busy training for May's Ironman challenge, she said they do not work out together.

"That wouldn't really come into it at all. I just do my own thing as we have different programmes because obviously we've different builds," she said.

"I can't believe it's in May, it's really soon. It's tough.

"I did three-and-a-half hours on the bike this morning, but if I sign up to do something, I'll definitely get it done."
