I would never pose for Playboy, bride-to-be Andrea tells Late Late

MODEL agent Andrea Roche has admitted she would never pose for a magazine like Playboy.

The 34-year-old scout, who took to the hot seat on the Late Late Show last night, told RTE host Ryan Tubridy that she "trusts" pal Rosanna Davison's decision to strip off for the famous publication, but she couldn't do it herself.

"I wouldn't do it. But I would have trust in what she wants to do," said the Tipperary native.

Andrea, who got engaged to her partner of two years Rob White in December, also revealed that she doesn't have a close relationship with her former agency Assets.

"I'd say hello to the owners. We don't sit down and have dinner or anything. I'm doing my own thing now."

She added that while the modelling industry here has changed dramatically over the years and become busier, Irish girls don't compare to the ultra-slim beauties abroad.

"You don't have to be as skinny here as other countries -- in Paris or Milan you have to be a tiny size zero ... for a lot of people that's not natural."

Andrea has done her best to keep her relationship with hunky beau Rob under wraps. Although she said she was "over the moon" when the businessman proposed underneath the Eiffel Tower in Paris, she did not divulge much information.

Meanwhile, on the same show, Ryanair boss Michael O'Leary gave a rare insight into his private life. He has four children under six years of age, and the 50-year-old said that his wife is "hands on" with them.

"I am hands on on the swimming, the under-eight's rugby and stuff like that. But on the hand holding and the nappy changing and the wiping bottoms I wasn't great," he said.
