Olympic gold medallist Kellie Harrington has admitted that wedding planning has been “stressful.”

The boxing champion is due to marry her longtime love Mandy Loughlin three months from now.

Taking to her Instagram Stories, the Dublin fighter told her followers that she still had tons of jobs to do before the big day and doesn’t know “where to bloody start.”

She said: “Wedding planning for a wedding that is 3 months away is definitely STRESSFUL.

“No venue, Not a stitch of clothes. Not knowing who to invite or where to bloody start. When people said planning a wedding is stressful I never believed it till now.

“@mandypandie_pie working under pressure is what we’re used to I think???”

Kellie and Mandy have been together since 2009 after meeting at a boxing club in Bray 13 years ago.

Speaking last year about their relationship, Mandy said: “It’s so rare to find everything that Kellie has, together. I don’t know how she has the energy to spread herself around the way she does. And the things she does, she gives back so much to people,” Mandy told Ryan Tubridy on RTÉ Radio.

“She brings 110pc to whatever she does. She brings the craic, she brings passion and excitement. If you meet Kellie and you are talking to her, she just makes you want to be a better person.

“We met about 13 years ago boxing. She used to have to trek over from Bray to train and we met there and clicked, and the rest is history,” she added.
