Roz Purcell, the poster woman for a fit and healthy lifestyle, won’t be overindulging in mulled wine and mince pies this year as she heads to Lanzarote to stay in a fitness resort.

The former Miss Universe Ireland will keep up her dedicated fitness regime over the festive period as she stays at Club La Santa, a “holiday paradise for active people”.

Along with her equally sporty sisters Rachel (27) and Rebecca (33), the top model will enjoy the warm weather and facilities at the resort.

The trio have been going to Club La Santa for the last few years.

“It’s great because you can eat all through Christmas but come back really fit,” Roz recently said.

The 24-year-old, who currently trains six days a week and advocates a whole-food diet, will take a more relaxed approach to her healthy routine for the next fortnight:

"I'd be lying if I said I didn't change my habits at Christmas. Of course I'm only human," she told the Irish Independent. "If there is anytime aside from your birthday when you can have guilt-free cake, chocolate, chips - it's Christmas."

She states that her Tipperary-based family have never been conventional when it comes to celebrating 25th, eating everything from Japanese to Italian in place of the usual turkey and ham.

However, she grins, "a Cadbury selection box is always in there somewhere."

This year, she is looking forward to revisiting one of her newer traditions:

"My family Christmas tradition used to be walking up to the top of Slievenamon with the dogs but recently the only tradition is one my sister and I do where we cycle to a small town in Lanzarote called Nazareth on Christmas Eve."

Meanwhile, her other half Niall 'Bressie' Breslin is staying put in his native Mullingar.
