Model Rozanna Purcell has again dismissed speculation that she and The Voice of Ireland mentor Bressie are an item, insisting they are "just friends".

There had been claims that Purcell had introduced the singer to her parents as her boyfriend but she told The Herald: "We're not together at all. He didn't visit my parents' house."

Purcell continued: "I actually haven't ever brought any of my ex-boyfriends back to my family house.

"I remember I used to go out with my neighbour so he obviously knew my family.

"But I have never done that whole thing because I haven't had that many serious boyfriends."

"I am still single," she added. "I don't really have that much time to have a boyfriend. I'm always modelling or training.

"I haven't spoken to Bressie about the stories because it happens to lots of people. You just have to focus on other things."
