She's rushed off her feet juggling work with wedding planning, but Xpose star Lisa Cannon was treated to a relaxing birthday treat from her fiance Richard Keatley.

The presenter (right) turned 36 this week and was whisked off her feet by her rugby player beau for a romantic getaway at the five-star Castlemartyr resort in Cork.

The birthday girl enjoyed champagne and chocolates as she was showered with gifts by the sportsman in the luxurious hotel, where Kimye famously stayed on their honeymoon.

The broadcaster thanked her Welsh other half on Twitter, posting a loved-up selfie of the pair.

"Incredible stay @CastlemartyrRes for my birthday! Thanks @Prince0fWales and all the staff for making me feel special," she said.

The pair are due to wed in the Italian city of Florence this September and Lisa recently admitted she's looking forward to a relaxing honeymoon.

"We're going to the Seychelles," said Lisa. "I believe there's no cell coverage, no nothing, so we're just going to chill."
