Roz’s sister Rachel announced on social media yesterday that she is also preparing to walk down the aisle.

In a sweet post, she wrote in her caption: “An unforgettable birthday week.”

Rachel then shared an adorable selfie with her future husband Kevin while holding up her new ring.

The happy couple were beaming and had a stunning view of nature in the background as they appeared to be on a hike.

And Rachel’s famous sister was quick to share her love for the soon-to-be married couple as she shared the post to her Instagram Story with the caption: “These two.”

Underneath the post, Roz also left several love heart emojis as she shared her sister’s excitement.

And the 32-year-old wasn’t the only one to congratulate the couple on their big news.

Bonnie Ryan commented: “Beautiful, congratulations Rachel.”

Louise Cooney wrote: “Congratulations”

While James Kavanagh said: “Congratulations, great.”

And Roz’s 2FM co-host Emma Power added: “Congratulations to you both.”

Meanwhile, Roz is tipped to take part in the new season of “Dancing With The Stars”.


Her interview on The Late Late Show last week with Patrick Kielty was an indication that she will sign on, according to sources.

An insider told The Irish Sun on Sunday: “This late appearance would have helped boost Roz’s profile before DWTS.”

“She also has a new hiking book to promote. To be fair, she rose to the occasion and was brilliant in dealing with Patrick.

“She took part in a panel with Brendan O’Carroll and Jason Byrne and still managed to get a laugh. RTE will be thrilled to see how Roz went down in the Late Late.”

Roz, 33, who previously said she hoped to “shake butts like Rihanna and Beyoncé” if she ever joined DWTS, has made a number of big career moves so far.


But it is the former Miss Universe Ireland’s arrival on RTE as host of a new weekend show on 2fm with Emma Power that has changed her mind about the dancefloor.

During an interview in 2016, Roz was asked if she would like to take part in the first season of the show.

She said: “It’s so funny – my friend asked me that the other day because I’m taking dance classes.

Roz admitted she would love to take part, but admitted she might struggle with roles despite her dance experience.

She explained: “I don’t think I like waltzes and slow stuff. I would be so nervous dancing.”
