Gillian 'embarrassed' by attention

Her dramatic new-look wowed the nation and now Gillian Quinn is taking on a new role by teaching others how to get her perfect figure.

The Herald can exclusively reveal the gorgeous mum-of-two has for the first time signed on to teach Pilates classes in Dublin. Down-to-earth Gillian began her first day of her new job at the UCD sports centre earlier this week.

Former Irish footballer and Sunderland chairman Niall Quinn proudly spoke about his wife Gillian's new occupation.

Speaking to the Herald, he said "Gillian started a new job teaching Pilates. She's been three years practising so that's why she's lost a bit of weight.


"It's a new job out in UCD -- I think there are a few classes out there and she's just taking some of the rotas."

Niall echoed the nation's views that his wife is looking "great", but admitted Gillian was "embarrassed" by the hype she created after ditching her flowing long curls, for a shorter, straight sleek hair-do.

She unveiled her stunning new look in an interview with Ryan Tubridy on his debut night of the new season of the Late Late Show earlier this month.

But Niall said: "She kinda gets embarrassed when people talk about stuff like that."
