Believe it or not, Roz will be single on Valentine's
SHE sizzles in her latest shoot for The Dubliner magazine -- so it's hard to believe that model Roz Purcell will find herself single this Valentine's Day.
Roz is very much on the market -- but, if these pictures are anything to go by, that won't be for long. But she is in no rush to find Mr Right and will instead be joining close friend and model Lynn Kelly and her boyfriend for a Valentine's Day meal.
"This Valentine's I'm going to be an absolute third wheel, it's so embarrassing. I'm not seeing anyone but none of my friends are single so I can't go on a girls' night out.
"Lynn and her boyfriend are going out for dinner so I'm just going to go to dinner with them. Hopefully I'll be working later that night so I can keep my mind occupied," she explained.
Nobody could blame Roz (21) for wanting to be a third wheel this year -- she remembers one Valentine's Day date which still makes her "cringe".
"The absolute worst was when I was with this guy and we were about to break up. He was two hours late for dinner and he ended up getting his mum to drive us and she hated me. Then we went out for dinner and his card didn't work, so I had to pay for the whole thing," she told The Dubliner magazine.
Roz is a good girl when it comes to behaving herself during the early stages of a relationship and said the furthest she would go on a first date is kissing.
"I'm such a believer that nothing can happen on the first date. It gives out the wrong vibes and it's not going to go anywhere if you go any further than that. I really have to get to know people," she said.
The winner of TV3's Celebrity Come Dine With Me also puts a good sense of humour at the top of her list of priorities when it comes to her ideal man. "I'd like to meet someone who definitely doesn't take things too seriously and someone who is not into all the crap around the Dublin modelling scene. He'd have to not give a s**t about what I do. And they have to be taller than me. I'm 5ft 10in so no shorties allowed," she said.
When it comes to celebrity crushes, she cites Colin Farrell and Robert Sheehan from RTE drama Love/Hate, who she says is "gorgeous".
Meanwhile, Roz is looking forward to travelling this summer. Last year the model spent months working in New York with Donald Trump's modelling agency as well as a stint modelling in South Africa. Now the brunette says she is itching to get away again.
"I think about going away all the time. Sometimes I wake up and I just want to go away. I'm still in touch with my agency in New York, I can always go back there but I don't want to go back to the same place, I want to try somewhere new."
