Holly enjoying a trip home before calendar shoot

Former Miss Ireland Holly Carpenter has returned from London to relax for a few days.

The brunette beauty has been enjoying time with her family as well as doing some shoots.

"My favourite thing about being home is mum's Sunday roast," she wrote online.

Holly (23) also went to the luxurious Fota Hotel and Spa in Cork during her time at home.

"Just checked into Fota Island resort, the hotel is so beautiful, can't wait to see the grounds," she wrote.

However, she is missing her London life, posting a picture of her and her best friend, former Miss England Alize Lily.

"Love being back in Dublin for a few days but really missing my Miss World bestie," she wrote.

Holly moved to London following her split from rugby player Cian Healy and the Assets model has admitted that she loves being single and that lads are chatting her up on nights out.

"It's kind of funny. I think you are almost more attractive to guys when you're not interested," she said.


Meanwhile, Holly will be jetting off to sun-soaked Tenerife to shoot a sexy bikini calendar early next month.

The bikini calender will have a myths and legends theme and will also feature some other Britain and Ireland's Next Top Model contestants, America's Next Top Model contenders and some lookers from The Face.

The other models involved in the sexy bikini shoot include Emma Ward, Eleanor Corcoran and Renee Bhagwandeen.
