I'll match Dubs win, says Celebrity Bainisteoir's Gillian

TOP MODEL Gillian Quinn wants to replicate Dublin's victory on GAA show Celebrity Bainisteoir and says she's in it to win it.

Gillian has revealed that due to her competitive streak, she wants to emulate the Dubs' star status.

"I'd like to hope I can go the whole way and win the show - no-one likes losing," she told the Herald.

"I'm used to competing -- it's in my nature," said the First Option beauty who's married to Sunderland chairman and former Ireland international Niall Quinn.

It's been a busy few months for the glamourous mum-of-two, who is battling it out with Amanda Brunker and Tony Cascarino on the latest instalment of the RTE series, which returned to screens earlier this week.

Despite having little knowledge of the sport, 38-year-old Gillian has thrown herself into the task of managing Tipperary team, Ballyporeen footballers.

She said: "I didn't have much GAA knowledge going into it, but I saw it as a personal challenge. It really appealed because it's sporty -- I've been asked to do a few other celebrity-type programmes this year, but none of them were me. It has been a fantastic experience so far, I'm very busy."

The Pilates instructor insists she is used to rallying up some motivation and knew the role was right up her street.

"I knew I'd be a good coach," she said.
