Congratulations are in order for Mr Ireland – he's engaged.

Darren King went up against hundreds of Irish lads to win the title last year, and now he has more good news to celebrate as he's set to marry his long time love, Annmarie.

The official Mr Ireland Twitter account announced the news this weekend, saying they are "delighted" for him.

Congratulations to MR Ireland @darrenjohnking who just announced his engagement to the beautiful Annmarie #Mrireland, delighted for them."

The couple are currently in the Czech Republic to celebrate their engagement.

In a Facebook post, Darren wrote that he's over the moon that Annmarie will be the future "Mrs King."

“I am thrilled this beautiful lady accepted my proposal,” he told his fans.


Congrats to Derren King, he is the new Mr Ireland 2016!


I would just like to say a huge thank you to all involved in the Mr Ireland Final in the Wright Venue last night. I would especially like to thank the main sponsors @platinumbarbers, @thetanby2jenns, @fehilysfitness and both @brendanmarc and @seanmontague for putting on such a great event. I'd also like to thank the amazing panel of judges for choosing me as the the overall winner and for everyone who supported me leading up to the event. It is an honour for me to be awarded with the Mr Ireland title and I know that I have huge shoes to fill after all that the previous winner @karl_bowe has achieved. He really has set the bar high and I am determined to work hard to live up to the title as Mr Ireland. Next stop Mr World on the 19th July!! #mi16 #mrireland #mrworld

Some of the country's most handsome bachelors filled The Wright Venue yesterday in the battle to become the new Mr Ireland, but it was one fitness enthusiast who took home the crown.

In association with Platinum Barbers, the Mr Ireland competition was judged by top stylist Sonja Mohlich, talent agent Julian Benson, current Miss Ireland 2016 Sacha Livingstone, Platinum Barbers owner Richie Lalor and Mr Ireland 2015, Karl Bowe. 

The model took home the new title, and was congratulated all over social media yesterday.

Good choice, right?

Speaking to Goss, 2015's winner Karl said, “Mr. Ireland has opened so many doors for me and my chosen career in the entertainment business, I have loved every moment of it from presenting my Country at Mr. World to  allowing me to go for my dreams.

“I have been honoured to hold the title the last two years and I won’t lie when I say I will be sad my time has come to end but look forward to see what the new Mr. Ireland will do with this title and wish him the best.”


The new series of Celebrity Big Brother kicks off early next week, and the latest confirmed contestant hails from Irish shores.

Former Bohs and Shelbourne player and self-confessed ladies' man Jeremy McConnell will join this year's lot of housemates, it was revealed this evening.

Dubliner Jeremy, who dated Holly Carpenter for over a year in his teens, once claimed to have slept with "all the models in Ireland," so he'll no doubt have a lot to say on that subject on the show.

Jeremy will join Gemma Collins, Spencer Matthews, David Gest, and Kim Kardashian's bestie Jonathan Cheban for the new series of CBB, which kicks off next Tuesday December 5.

He'll be the first Irish contestant to take part since B*Witched's Edele Lynch in August 2014.

As well as his modelling work, the tattooed Irishman also starred in the 2013 MTV reality show Beauty School Cop Outs.

He describes himself as a "flirt and a charmer" and according to his Beauty School Cop Outs bio he hates "judgmental, stuck up, power crazy people and… bitchiness."

Sounds like he'll have a tough time in the CBB house, so…
