And the award for Bressie's best supporting girlfriend is...Roz Purcell

They try to keep their romance private as much as possible, but there seems to be no stopping model Roz Purcell when it comes to cheering on her man Bressie from the sidelines on The Voice of Ireland every week.

They have been dating for two years and as well as living and training together, the couple clearly support each other in their work.

Tipperary native Roz has been attending the live shows of the RTE series each Sunday and happily sits backstage in the green room to watch as her former rugby-playing other half Bressie reviews the acts on stage in front of a live studio audience.

Even though they're all loved-up, Roz will not be bringing her burly beau to the upcoming Peter Mark VIP Style Awards, the Diary can reveal.

The leggy AR model has decided to bring her sister to the star-studded event, which will be hosted by presenter Brendan Courtney and held at the Marker Hotel in Dublin on April 25, because she wants it to be a girly night.

"I just want to go and have fun because I never get to go out. I'm such a granny so I'm just looking at it like, 'Oh party night,'" she said.

Roz has been given the nod in the Most Stylish Woman category and has insisted that she'll be celebrating any win with her sibling.

And the former Miss Universe Ireland is not the only one leaving her man at home.

Limerick lass Madeline Mulqueen has decided to step out on the red carpet without actor fiancé Jack Reynor and is to head to the awards show solo.

The brunette, who rose to fame in the Rubberbandits' Horse Outside music video, has also been shortlisted for the Look of the Year prize.

Madeline and Jack recently got engaged and the couple, who have been dating more than a year, are usually inseparable.

Since photos of Madeline wearing an engagement ring surfaced last month, the future husband and wife have been trying to keep their relationship under the radar.

They both attended the IFTAs last weekend but refused to do any interviews about their nuptials and barely paused for pictures.

Madeline will also be hoping her ankle makes a full recovery for the VIPs after wrapping it in a bandage last week.

She will obviously be looking to put her best fashion foot forward when a string of the country's best-known personalities turn out for the bash, including Kathryn Thomas, Holly Carpenter and Sarah Morrissey.
