Our Rosie will make TV show about baring all for Playboy cover

FORMER Miss World Rosanna Davison is set to take part in a fly on the wall TV series about her journey to the cover of Playboy, with a one-off documentary to be aired in the New Year.

The Herald agony aunt will strip down for the famous men's magazine before Christmas and sources have revealed that she will be filmed every step of the way by the Irish production company behind Celebrity Salon and Fade Street.

From flying to the top secret location to baring it all in front of the camera, Rosie will also explain the reason for the controversial move.

"Producers in Straywave have already started on the series. They worked with her on Celebrity Salon and she was great so they know people will be interested in her.

"The documentary will focus on Rosanna shooting the Playboy cover. Plus Rosanna will be telling the public why she has decided to do the shoot. She's gone through an interesting change in the last year," an insider told the Herald.

And it looks like the nation will get to see the top model strip down for the racy pictures, as cameras will go be rolling when she does her shoot.

"The cameras will film her stripping down for the shoot it will be an all-access documentary. She will also debate whether or not the move symbolises female empowerment.

"The guys at Straywave are starting to pitch the idea now and they are already in talks with stations in both Ireland and the UK. She's a household name at the end of the day, so there is a lot of interest," an insider said.

Speaking to the Herald Rosanna (27) remained tight-lipped about the up and coming programme, but said she is looking forward to shooting for the world's most famous magazine.

"I can't really confirm any details at the moment, everything is still being worked out but the shoot is coming up very soon and it will be somewhere very hot and tropical, thank goodness.

"I'm really excited about it," she said.

The AR model made the comments while launching the Irish Heart Foundation's newest campaign Warming Irish Hearts. The beauty queen posed alongside the Irish Countrywomen's Association in a unique hand knit creation.

Speaking at the launch of the new kit, which will be sold in Kilkenny shops, Rosanna said it's important to front Irish campaigns.

"It's still important for me to get involved with these campaigns. This raises awareness for the Irish Heart Foundation and it's great to be apart of that.

"Thankfully I'm in the position that I can help put a message across, whether it be about health or any charity I can support," she said.
