Beauty Roz is 'getting on like a house on fire' with new room-mate

WE'RE sure there was no shortage of interested applicants when former Miss Universe Ireland Rozanna Purcell (21) put out a casting call for a new room-mate.

And she has revealed to the Diary how herself and her new female house-mate are getting on like a house on fire after she moved into her new pad in Ely Place.

"I've just moved into a new apartment with this girl from Galway and I didn't even know her before we moved in, but she's so sound.

"We get on like a house on fire. We've the exact same sense of humour so it's going really well," she said.

The full-lipped beauty was recently unveiled as one of the participants in this year's Celebrity Bainisteoir, which sees her being put in charge of mentoring Cashel GAA team in her home county of Tipperary.


She recently met with all the team -- and said she's relishing getting stuck into the new RTE reality programme, which looks set to be a popular show this year.

"I'm really competitive, in everything that I do and I really want to win," she continued excitedly.

"I met them all for the first time last weekend and they were all so cool. I couldn't have asked for a nicer team.

"I was so nervous on my way there, I felt like I was doing my Leaving Cert or something.

"But when I got there, they couldn't have been more welcoming.

"I'm just really excited to get going."

She has also signed up to take part in a course in the Gaiety School of Acting as she branches out into another field.
