I won't be going to bootcamp before wedding - Caroline

ENGAGED presenter Caroline Morahan has insisted she's no bootcamp bride and won't be killing herself in the gym before her big day.

The former RTE star told the Herald that she's far from a bridezilla and will be taking an easier approach when it comes to her pending nuptials -- which will be held in Italy.

The 34-year-old, who is gearing up for her autumn wedding to long-term partner Daithi O Caoimh, revealed: "I'm pretty happy with my body. Like anyone, everybody has things they're not as happy about, I'll just dress accordingly. I don't think I'll be going crazy trying to lose any weight for my wedding -- I'm not doing a swimwear shoot.

"I think everyone would like to be fitter and certainly I'd like to make more of an effort there, but I'm not going to feel like [killing myself]," the ex-Off The Rails host said.

Caroline, who is in town to launch Littlewoods' latest collection, is following in the footsteps of Brian McFadden and Vogue Williams -- after opting to host her big day in Italy.

"So far it's been really fun to think about things and enjoy the process. I love parties and if I'm throwing a party for an occasion I go all out. I don't think I'm a bridezilla ... I just really want people to have fun.

"I'm not that regimented in terms of a wedding style [or theme], the place itself is so naturally beautiful that it doesn't need much. It'll be Tuscan style, in keeping with the surroundings -- there won't be any swans or fireworks or anything."

And Caroline divulged she'll be walking down the aisle in an Irish-designed gown by Kathy De Stafford.

"I looked in Los Angeles for the fun of it ... but I think when I miss home, I wanted it to be Irish ... you always appreciate what's not on your doorstep."

The bubbly broadcaster packed her bags with her fiance to set up home in LA in 2009 to concentrate on her acting career.
