Cars, money, holidays ... celebs seem to have it all. However, Dawn O'Porter says it's a "nightmare" being in the public eye when she's having a bad day.

The TV presenter and designer says that while she wouldn't describe herself as a "moody person", she can still "chuck a wobbly on occasion".

"It's unrealistic for people to be chirpy all of the time and, sometimes, a really stinking mood can get you back on track," she said.

"Being in the public eye is a nightmare for having an off-day. How many times have you heard stories of how moody a celebrity was when someone encountered them in real life?

"Famous people, like all people, have bad days. It has nothing to do with what they do for a living, or because they are different in any way, it's because they are human beings who live their lives," she added.

Dawn (36), who is married to Moone Boy and Bridesmaids actor Chris O'Dowd, says she remembers being stunned when someone said they were "really happy" to see the couple looking "miserable".

"I remember seeing a Tweet where someone said they once saw my husband and I together and we looked like we were in terrible moods," she told Glamour magazine.


"She said that this made her 'really happy'. I looked at that tweet for ages, because it floored me.

"To see a couple having a bad day, and for that to make you feel 'really happy'?

"Christ, how much of a bad mood do you have to be in to think that?

"She was probably right. We most likely were in massive moods and having an argument or something. That happens, we're married," she added.

On a happier note, the couple, who became parents to baby Art in January, celebrated their wedding anniversary this week.

"Three years ago I married the man I love in this old and beaten outfit I got for £24 on eBay," she captioned a snap of her vintage wedding dress.
