Suzanne won't follow Pippa down the aisle with TV crew

IT doesn't look like newly engaged model Suzanne McCabe will be following in the footsteps of fellow beauty Pippa O'Connor when it comes to having cameras present on her wedding day.

The model, above, who got engaged to her long-term beau Rob Buckley around Valentine's Day, insists her big day will be a private affair.

"The thought had never occurred to me," she told the Diary when asked about the possibility of going down the reality TV route.

"I couldn't imagine anyone would bother their backsides watching it if we did," she laughed.

"For me a wedding is a very private and beautiful affair between two people and those closest to them.

"Sharing this momentous and private occasion publicly would be a non-runner for me, no matter what the perks are," she added.

Star couple Brian Ormond and Pippa are said to have nabbed a lucrative deal, which will see their nuptials and reception at the Ritz Carlton televised next June.

Suzanne, meanwhile, was remaining tight-lipped when it came to plans for her own wedding day, insisting they have not set a date yet.


The smitten couple has already begun expanding their family, however, by adopting a German Sheppard puppy.

Big-hearted Suzanne is a well-known as a campaigner with animal rights group PETA and even stripped to pose for their first Irish "I'd rather go naked than wear fur" ad campaign.

The couple's adorable new pet is called Kenny and Suzanne admits he's been keeping her busy since she picked him up earlier this week.
