I had a ball celeb-spotting at the IFTAs

I went to the IFTAs for the first time on Thursday night in Dublin.

I was presenting an award on the night and it was really exciting to be a part of it all.

I presented the award for Entertainment and I was so delighted when Baz Ashmawy won for his show 50 Ways To Kill Your Mammy.

I love that show and I’ve worked with Baz a bit and he’s a really nice guy.

I went with my friend Andrea and we had such a laugh, had a few drinks and lots of dancing was done.

We sat down beside Rosanna Davison and Wes Quirke, I haven’t actually spent any time with either of them before and they are the funniest people ever. We literally laughed all night.

Myself and my friend Andrea decided to go on a selfie mission for the night, we wanted one with Miriam O’ Callaghan, but we missed her, although we did get a million more with some other familiar faces  – proper stalkers!

I wore a dress from The Ivory Closet, I loved the dress because it was so comfortable and it had pockets. Sometimes when I go to these things I end up wearing a gorgeous dress that’s super uncomfortable, but this one was a dream to wear.

Brendan O’Carroll won the award of the night and I am in love with him and his wife Jenny, they’re such lovely genuine people .


Take it as red at bash 

I presented the Just Eat National Takeaway Awards with Baz Ashmawy again this year.

It’s always a really fun night and Baz is gas! I love my two dresses for the day. 

The red one from earlier in the day is from Starla dresses.

The second is from The Ivory Closet and they have such gorgeous  gúnas.


Moving movie is fit for a Queen 

This week saw the release of the new movie on Panti, Ireland’s most well-known drag queen and accidental activist.

I think it’s so fantastic what Panti has done for the gay community in Ireland.

I can’t wait to see it. It was shot over five years that saw Ireland’s attitudes to gay people change beyond recognition. 

It’s bound to be a tear-jerker.


It's picture perfect with Jill's work 

There are two things I feel really make a home – Sky TV and Art!

I love art and one of my favourite Irish artists Jill Deering is having her second exhibition this Thursday in the Cobalt Café and gallery at 7pm. I just can’t wait for it.

I already have some of her work, but I can’t wait to add to it.

Here are some of the pieces I want, aren’t they so cool? It’s all hand-drawn too…
