We're engaged, says Caoimhe -- but still no ring!

BIG Brother star Caoimhe Guilfoyle (22) has insisted she's pushing ahead with plans to marry boyfriend Dave Mulligan -- even though she doesn't even have an engagement ring yet.

The Loughlinstown reality star has revealed how the pair are 100pc committed to tying the knot at some stage, and have even posed for their first photoshoot together as an engaged couple.

She proposed to her boyfriend Dave (26) from the diary room of the Channel 4 series last month, two weeks before walking out of the show after a heated row with Josie Gibson.

"The proposal was completely genuine and we are engaged," she told the Herald. "I still don't have a ring and it will be a long engagement, we don't want to rush into anything, but we will get married eventually."

The pair recently completed their first spread as a 'celebrity couple' for the new edition of VIP magazine and Caoimhe said she enjoyed every minute of it.

"I thought it might be a bit cringeworthy but it was actually great fun. We did it in the new Vanilla club in the Hampton Hotel and it should be out soon. We were a little bit embarrassed as it was our first shoot together but we got into it and the styling was amazing on it," she continued.

The spiky-haired brunette, who is now with Compton's agency, also revealed how she hasn't looked back once since quitting the Big Brother show last July 20 after spending 42 days in the house.

At the time she said she was desperate to get back to her boyfriend Dave and was no longer enjoying life in the house.

"It was an amazing experience and one I'll never forget, but I don't regret leaving."
