Being at home, hanging with pals is not good for my waistline says curvy Roz

Model Roz Purcell says being home in Ireland reduces the pressure to be stick thin.

Donald Trump's favourite model, who harbours ambitions to be a Victoria's Secret girl, says hanging out with pals at home has contributed to her stunning new curves.

The blonde beauty has admitted that she loves enjoying meals out with friends during her time in Ireland. And the statuesque stunner admits shs has completely relaxed her normally intense gym routine.


Speaking to the Herald, she said: "I'm just hanging out with friends and I've started going back to the gym and training.

"When I'm abroad, I'm in the gym all the time, but here I don't do it as much. I go out more and I meet more people for lunch, but there's not as much pressure to be skinny here anyway which is nice.

"I am literally always meeting someone for lunch, which is nice, but costly. I could meet two different people in one day, so I'd be out for lunch and dinner."

However, she is determined to be in tip top condition by September, when she jets off to Los Angeles to try her hand at acting and commercial modelling. But in the meantime, the AR model will be spending her summer in Dublin, where she is one of the most in demand beauties around.

"I'm really busy, Andrea [Roche, her agent] has been very good to me and keeping me busy with jobs, so I can't complain."

The former UCD student handed over her Miss Universe Ireland crown to Kerry native Aoife Hannon earlier this month, and says her successor will take the modelling world by storm.

"I don't really notice a difference -- the work just hasn't stopped," she said. "I don't feel different at all. More people keep asking me about Aoife, and she's just lovely. I think she's really going to do well."

The Clonmel native normally spends her time in Tipperary when she's home, but she decided to up sticks and move to the capital in order to focus on her work.

She is currently living with a pal in Mount Merrion, but is considering moving to a more central apartment.
