I had a girl crush on Vogue when she was on TV, says Holly Carpenter

It's been two years since she competed on Britain and Ireland's Next Top Model and Holly Carpenter has revealed she'd love to do another reality show.

With her fellow Irish models making a big impression on UK reality shows, the Dublin native admits that she'd happily star in another show.

However, Holly definitely won't be following in Hazel O'Sullivan's Big Brother footsteps.

"I definitely would do a reality show," she told the Diary.

"I don't think I'd do Big Brother though, it's so intense," she said.

"Even when I was on Britain and Ireland's Next Top Model you had a mike on you all the time and the cameramen were living with us, so I'd imagine that Big Brother would be 100 times worse."

It seems the brunette stunner is more interested in something a little more physically challenging.

"I like shows that are more of a challenge like I'm a Celebrity! Get Me Out of Here where you really have to compete for something," she said.

After watching her beat stiff competition on the gruelling Bear Grylls series Mission to Survive, Holly admitted she admires model-turned-blogger Vogue Williams.

"What a woman," Holly said. "My mum and I were obsessed with the show and we both developed a girl crush on her. She was on fire."

The former Miss Ireland also admitted that she can relate to Made in Chelsea star Nicola Hughes, who has faced some backlash from fans since joining the cast of the popular E4 show last month.

Although the pair have never met, beauty queen Holly said that she can understand how Nicola feels after getting a hard time.

"It's tough being on a reality show because things can look different after the editing and people can be quite harsh on Twitter," she said.

"But it's all good for her. They'll always have their goodies and their baddies on a show like that - they did that to me a little bit in the model house.

"If you're in any way outspoken, they'll kind of feed off that and use it to their advantage in the editing.

"It's better than going in and being a wallflower," she added.

Holly has recently been announced as the face of Lauryn Rose jewellery, who have pledged to donate 10pc of every online purchase to the Laura Lynn's Children's Hospice.

"It's such a great cause," Holly said.

"If you're treating yourself, it's nice to know you'll be giving back too."
