Former couple Roz Purcell and Bressie were pictured at the same event for the first time since their 2016 split.

The former Miss Universe Ireland (27) and The Blizzards frontman (37) split in 2016 after four years of dating and haven't been pictured together since their break-up. Both were guests at Thursday night's Xpose Benefit Awards at Dublin's Mansion House, where Bressie was honoured with a Wavemaker award, and Roz was one of the 150 invited guests.

The couple were famously private during their relationship. Roz has moved on and has been dating music promoter Zach Desmond for more than a year.

Breslin, on the other hand, is single, saying, "I wouldn't go out with me, honestly" and describing himself as "odd as Christmas".

"If I'm honest, I was in a long-term relationship and absolutely 100% wasn't ready after," he said last year.

"That takes a lot out of you, a break-up. There's no point in pretending. It's hard, it's really hard. I've been quite open about that."
