"Won't lie, s**t myself," he told almost 150,000 followers on Twitter.

Bressie and his model girlfriend Roz flew out to Lanzarote before the Christmas break were the lived it up in luxury training resort Club La Santa.

The pair, who confirmed their relationship in the summer, spent the festive period working out and eating well as Bressie prepares for an Ironman triathlon later this year.

The Mullingar stud was counting his blessings following the scary journey home.

"Blessed to have actually got home last night with the weather," he said.
