Most women dread the thought of turning 30, but not Vogue Williams.

The model-turned-broadcaster recently celebrated the milestone birthday but she still feels as young as ever.

The Howth blonde embraced her youth by marking the occasion with a star-studded party in Baggot Street hotspot Xico – where she says she dressed as though she was off to a teenage disco.

“My mum always said she never really feels the age she is and I didn’t understand it until now,” Vogue told the Herald.

“I still feel like I’m 20 and I think it’s just what you do with yourself, it didn’t bother me too much. I had loads of fun and I dressed like I was going to ‘Wes’ so I didn’t feel 30.”

Thirty looks set to be a golden year for the former Fade Street star as she’s busier than ever with work.

Her latest Reality Bites documentary for RTE, which includes interviews with death-row prisoners, is not set to air until next month, but Vogue has revealed she’s already in talks with the State broadcaster for another series.

“There’s going to be more extreme stuff. Now I’ve done death row I feel I just want to carry on that path,” she said.

While work opportunities in Dublin may be calling London-based Vogue home, the Spin 1038 DJ said she had no plans to return to Ireland for good.

Despite recently moving out of the home she shared with ex-husband Brian McFadden (right), who she split with earlier this year, Vogue is still happy to call London her home.

“I only come back when I have to work,” she said.

“I don’t want to move back here. I’ve spoken to RTE and I have a lot more coming up next year, but a lot of it’s away.

“I do love coming home, but I get bored of it after a while. It’s nice to have the both, but London is so much fun and I’ve loads of friends over there. It suits me.”

When she is back in Dublin, Vogue explained that she stays in her new apartment, which is next door to her nearest and dearest.

“I’ve moved into my place in Howth and I love it. It’s just below my auntie who’s my godmother – she’s like my mum in Ireland because my real one is in Spain.”
