Tallafornia star Kelly Donegan has revealed that she would never return to reality TV even though it is where her career began.

The 24-year-old did admit that while she doesn't regret her time on the show, she wouldn't do it again.

"I suppose doing reality TV for me didn't really suit" Kelly admitted to the Diary.

"The show was fine, it was a bit of fun. I would never regret anything, it gave me a big platform to help women, motivate them to be healthy.

"I see myself more as a coach than someone who was on reality TV. I would never go and do it again. I just don't know if that type of show suits Ireland," she added.

Kelly (inset) currently competes in body-building competitions and regularly keeps her followers up to date with her efforts in the gym and the progress she's made.

The brunette also revealed that she feels people's perceptions of her have changed since her days on the Dublin- based reality show.

"People have this perception of people that are on reality TV, that they're a certain type of person," she said.

"It's been a pretty exciting year for me, people are starting to get to know me more as a person than what they thought I was.

"I have some really big projects coming up next year as well, it's going to be my best year yet.

"A lot of people don't know that I did graphic design in college, I'm really arty. People weren't really aware of that," she added.

Kelly also revealed that new reality show Infectious - which has yet to be picked up by a TV station - starring fellow Tallafornians Nikita Murray, Marc O'Neill and Phil Penny is not something she is interested in.

"I don't really have a comment on it. What can I say?"
