Dublin native Vogue Williams jokes the very first thing she will do when she returns home after the pandemic is kiss the ground and says - "there is no place like home."

The London-based mum-of-two who lives with her husband - Made in Chelsea star Spencer Matthews - and their two kids Theo (age two), and baby girl Gigi (six months) says she longs for home and her family in Dublin.

"What's the first thing I'll do when I get home - honestly? I'll kiss the ground", laughs Vogue.

"I'll go straight to my house and see my sister. I'm going to see all my aunties, all my friends. I just miss everybody over in Ireland and it's just home for me. I miss everything about Ireland and can't wait to be back."

The vaccine roll-out has been way more successful in Britain, on the face of it than here, and Vogue - who does daily fitness videos on her Instagram - reveals feelings of hope are palpable on the city streets.

She says: "Everywhere seems quite busy, there's traffic every day I don't understand where everyone's going. Everyone is getting on with it, there is a bit of hope, the vaccine rollout is going well over here. We now have a date to look forward to. I don't want to get too excited, but my real focus and goal is just getting back to Ireland and that's exciting to me."

Being a busy working mum makes looking good a little bit harder for sure, but the brown-eyed beauty is thrilled with her healthy family.

She says: "As soon as I had my first child I just thought to myself - I cannot believe everything my mother did for me. You don't realise the extent of it until you have your own. It's the greatest gift in the world, the greatest thing that's ever happened to me. It's tough and full-on but totally worth it.

The reality TV star - who lives in Battersea, London - has just released a beautiful collaboration with Wicklow-born designer Lucy Nagle - which is loungwear in 100pc cotton and in pastel colours (pictured).

Lucy Nagle, says: "It's something we've been working on together the past few months. I love how the collection's playful and fun pastel colours reflect Vogue's style and personality. The past year has been a crazy one and I really wanted to create a collection that is not only comfy, but adds a little bit of colour to people's lives."

Vogue (35) - who would look good in anything - admits: "Back in the day, when I was younger I used to wear skirts that were too short and I would be tugging at them all night, a pair of leather trousers that I insisted on wearing even though they didn't fit but I'd squeeze myself into them. Now at the age I'm at, I like to be comfortable in my clothes.

"I usually wear clothes that are super comfortable."

The new Lucy x Vogue collection is available from lucynagle.com. The 100pc cotton tracksuits are €75 for the sweater and €75 for pants.

Vogue says: "We have four amazing pastel tracksuits. They are super comfy."

Wicklow-born Lucy has always had a thing for design.

After studying and working in interior design in London, Lucy honed her talent for sourcing the best textiles and most beautiful design into her passion for knitwear, and the Lucy Nagle brand was born.

Lucy's transition to fashion was a no-brainer. Her love of colour, wool, and cashmere, and her flair for mixing textures culminated in her first capsule collection in 2013, which was quickly snapped up by leading luxury retailer, Brown Thomas.
