Holly Carpenter and Cian Healy relax poolside after snake discovery in Spanish villa


Top model Holly Carpenter and her rugby star beau Cian Healy have moved on from a slimy encounter with a snake in style.

Alliteration aside, the high profile pair are currently sunning themselves in Guadiaro, Spain in a plush villa for a well-earned break with some fun in the sun.

Last night, the fearsome prop tweeted a photo of a snake which had made its way into their exclusive digs, while Holly also posted a video of her other half attempting to tackle it with a stick.

But they appear to have moved on from the frightening encounter as Holly keeps her Instagram followers updated with sun-drenched pics of the couple enjoying their downtime.



And while the couple have been happy in their relationship for nearly two years and his Ireland teammates Tommy Bowe and Sean Cronin have proposed to their other halves, Healy quashed suggestions he's planning on proposing to his 23-year-old girlfriend anytime soon.

Asked if he has engagement plans, he told Today FM’s Ray D’Arcy Show; “No, I’m  not engaged. There’s too much of that happening around me.”


Holly, who rose to prominence when she was crowned Miss Ireland in 2012, has also been happy to show off her well-earned bikini body as she works out six days a week at No 17 Personal Training and is an advocate of the paleo diet.

The model and health guru has said that her profile has been boosted across the water, thanks to her stint on 'Britain and Ireland's Next Top Model'.

"I was recognised on the tube; when you leave Ireland you never expect that so it's really cool," Holly told the Diary. "I'm just working away with Andrea Roche models right now, but I love working here.

"I would like to travel over to London and check out what's over there, but we'll see," she added.
