Bressie has denied rumours he split with model girlfriend Roz Purcell.
One of Ireland's hottest couples spent Christmas apart with Roz (25) jetting off to Thailand and Bressie staying at home in Mullingar, prompting speculation about their relationship status.
But The Voice of Ireland judge (35) was quick to quash any suggestion of a break-up with his other half of three years, saying he simply doesn't enjoy spending the festive season abroad.
"My mother would have killed me if I had gone away for Christmas and I'm much more frightened of my mother than I am of Roz," he told the Irish Sun.
"Anyway I went away for Christmas one year and hated it. Never again."
While the former Miss Universe Ireland set social media slight with a string of sexy selfies during her Thai holiday with sister Rachel, Bressie wasn't resting on his laurels at home in Westmeath as he prepared for the return of the RTE One show and spent time with fellow Mullingar man Niall Horan.
