Roz - I'm leaving for the US again

FORMER Miss Universe Ireland Roz Purcell has revealed she is set to leave Ireland behind once again, as she plans to jet to the US in the new year.

After winning a contract with Donald Trump while in the Miss Universe contest in 2010, Roz had an envious international modelling career which saw her living in a top-class apartment in New York as well as spending two months in South Africa for fashion campaigns.

But after a whirlwind 10 months the 21-year-old headed home, and even though she said she was only staying for a short time, Roz has now become a new cast member of Fade Street and has moved into a Dublin apartment with model Lynn Kelly.

Speaking to the Diary, the Tipperary beauty says after completing her climb up Kilimanjaro with model pals Louise Johnston, Georgia Salpa and Daniella Moyles next month, she will leave Ireland once again and get her international modelling career back on track.
