"If I did have a boyfriend, I'd probably be keeping it very quiet. I doubt I'd be putting him all over Snapchat," she said.

"I was thinking about it recently and five of my best friends are guys - that's maybe because I spend so much time in the gym, too."


And despite her break-up from Bressie and her beloved sister Rachel being diagnosed with Leukaemia, she said that the past year has been "one of the best years ever."

"Life is what you make of it. You need to have a positive attitude going in or out of anything, that's what's going to get you through," she said.

A representative for Rozanna declined to comment when asked about her relationship status.
