Roz stays out of kitchen after feeling TV celeb show heat
TOP model Roz Purcell hasn't stepped inside the kitchen since filming Celebrity Come Dine With Me.
The former Miss Universe contestant appeared on the first celebrity episode last night -- but says she hasn't cooked a meal since taking part in the programme.
Viewers will see Roz (21) attempting to cook up a storm in the kitchen tomorrow night when the cameras enter her Dublin apartment where she hosts a dinner party for co-stars singer Brian Kennedy, Ireland AM correspondent Noel Cunningham, Fair City star George McMahon and scribbler Paul Martin.
But, speaking to the Herald, the Tipperary model said she hadn't cooked a thing since her task and could barely watch the episode last night. "I haven't set foot in the kitchen since I did Come Dine With Me. I barely cook as it is and I haven't cooked since then. To be honest even though it was a fun week it was quite stressful. I had never hosted a dinner party before and I won't be doing it again anytime soon, trust me.
"After going through that I definitely appreciate my parents much more now. The amount of work that goes into hosting a dinner party and making a three-course meal is mad.
"To think they did that for me all my life, every Christmas, I feel for them now."
The model, who was famously spotted by Donald Trump and signed to his modelling agency in New York two years ago, said she was well looked after during the filming of the cooking show.
"It was scary going in to the show, I was with a bunch of entertainers, so I didn't know how I would possibly entertain them, but in the end they all ended up looking after me.
They were really nice because I was like the baby of the group."
But it doesn't look like the cast got on all the time.
On last night's episode Martin asked the catwalk queen if she had her lips done.
Sitting at Brian Kennedy's dining room table, Martin asked "Have you had collagen injected into your lips?" Roz quickly said "No, honestly I haven't."
Asked if the question bothered her Roz told the Herald: "It was fine, I'm used to it. I get asked all the time."
