Bressie's date for IFTAs ... is his sister

HARD luck girls, Niall Breslin already has a date for the IFTAs. But don't get too disheartened - it's only his sister.

Ireland's most lusted-after bachelor Bressie (30) won't be wearing his heart on his sleeve when he makes an appearance at the event.

Instead, the musician and Voice Of Ireland presenter will be bringing his young sister, Andrea, along as his date to the awards ceremony at the Convention Centre tomorrow night.

The Mullingar star will be rubbing shoulders with stars such as Michael Fassbender and Brendan Gleeson, having nabbed a coveted invite to the bash.

He has spoken before of how he has "no room" in his life right now for a girlfriend, as he's too busy concentrating on music.

"There's a time and place for love, but right now it couldn't happen," he said.

"I've done it before where I've gone out with girls when I'm this busy and it's just not fair on them. I get so stuck into my music.

"Once the really hard work is done I can relax a bit. But the last thing I want to do is go home after recording in the studio, fight with a girlfriend after not seeing her for a week then coming back into the studio the next day," he added.

He is now the favourite mentor to win RTE's first series of The Voice Of Ireland after he picked his team.

The Can't Stay Young Forever star has also been nominated for the Peter Mark VIP Style Awards for the first time, with a nod in the Most Stylish Man category.

He responded by joking how "obviously the pyjama look is back in". He'll be up against fellow RTE mentor Brian Kennedy in the same category.
