EXCLUSIVE with Vogue: Yeah TV is great… but you give up your life too


Vogue Williams is one busy lady. From being the brand ambassador of Easilocks to the new face of Irish tanning brand, SunKiss, it baffles us how she has any time to herself.

But as we chatted to her today, Vogue was putting up her Christmas tree (the colour theme is red, gold and white FYI), even though she admits that she'll barely see the tree over the Christmas holidays.

And why won't she? Well, work.

Her many TV shows have boomed over the years, and the blonde beauty says she owes that success to the topics in each series – they're real issues for real people.

"I get into real topics that people can relate to. And from those TV shows, I learn a lot and I hope the viewers learn a lot too. 

"So much goes into them, but for next year you're going to see more gritty topics being discussed."

Right now, Vogue swears she can't discuss those "gritty" topics because she "has to see if they'll let me put them on TV first!"

Many look up to Vogue, as she went from being a model to a DJ and now a star on our TV screens, but she knows just as well as anyone that breaking into TV is no easy feat. And even when you have broken that barrier, you still have to handle rejection.

For anyone who wants to go down the television career path, Vogue says that you have to give up a chunk of your life.

"You really need to love it, and honestly, you have to give up your life a little bit. I miss out on so many things. But, if TV is something you want to do, you can't give up on it.

"You will get knocked down, I have. But you just have to go for it, and if it's something you love doing, you won't mind working at it everyday."

When Dancing With The Stars Ireland was announced this summer, it was common knowledge in the realms of the Internet that Vogue was set to present the show. The presenting gig ultimately went to Amanda Byram and Vogue admits that she was disappointed with the news at first.

"I really wanted to be a presenter on Dancing With The Stars, but I didn't get it. At first I was raging, but then I got The Jump, so it all worked out."

And as for handling the rejection? The Dublin native believes that you just have to move on.

"That's just life. For the most part, I don't see it as rejection. I just think that you have to get on with it and move on.

"What's meant for you won't pass you by."

With every job that's in the public eye, you have to look your best – and we think Vogue is an absolute pro at this stage. But, instead of keeping up with the gltz and glamour, Vogue likes to look after her skin first and foremost.

"I love facials. I always have facials. Recently, my skin has flared up, and that never happened to me before, so I'm swearing by facials from Renaissance in Howth at the moment."

And as for her tan, Vogue is loving SunKiss. After recently being named as the new face of the brand, the DJ says that it's the best she's used in years.

"You know what, it lasts so much longer!" she gasps. "I'm not overly-girly, and don't like having to take loads of time out to do my tan, but SunKiss is so easy to apply. I have it on in about ten minutes.

"I have mine on for about a week at this stage, and I constantly have showers after the gym, but it's still perfect. The last time I applied it, it last for two weeks!"

Is it just us or does Vogue seem to have it all worked out?!
