She started out her career when she won Miss Ireland, but Pamela Flood is happy her modelling days are behind her.

The former Off The Rails presenter was one of the country's top models when she won the crown back in 1993, and while she enjoyed the parties and glamour that came with the job, she said she doesn't miss her days on the catwalk.

"I get to do it every now and then and it's fun for a few minutes. I haven't modelled in 20 years, it's that long ago," Pamela told the Herald.

"I enjoyed it at the time, it was a lot of fun. I was in my early twenties, I was single and living it up as anyone would be. It was fun, but I don't miss it.

"I'm in a different stage of my life and I'm happy with that."

Things couldn't be more different for the former beauty queen now, as she is just nine weeks away from giving birth to her third child.

Despite being heavily pregnant, the broadcaster, who will be making her TV comeback next year with a new TV3 series on older mothers, doesn't worry about watching her figure.

Pamela (44) admitted that running after her two young children Harrison (4) and Elsie (2) keeps her fit enough that she doesn't have to watch what she's eating.

"I bounce between a size 10 and 12, but I don't worry too much about it," Pamela said.

"When you have young children you're running around all the time and you don't get the same chance to sit down and watch TV.

"They keep you moving. They have to exercise so you're all the time bringing them to the park or to swimming lessons. It's a constant workout."

Although she's an advocate for a healthy diet, the blonde beauty added that "life's too short" to stay away from sugary snacks.

"There has got to be treats," she said. "Life can't be a grind and there has to be something in your day to cheer you up."
