Vogue Williams says being single at Christmas has its perks: she can buy her own gifts!

by Michelle Johnson

Vogue Williams proved her fearlessness when she won Bear Grylls: Mission Survive and competed on Dancing With the Stars so it's no wonder that the Irish model and presenter, who split from husband Brian McFadden last year, has found the perfect way to beat the Christmas blues: shoes.

"What would I like in my stocking this year? You know, that's the only disappointing thinking about being single: I'm not going to get a really good present unless I buy it myself," she says to HELLO! in her exclusive Christmas message. "So I know what's going to be in my stocking, and it's probably going to be a pair of Louboutins!"

Vogue's family traditions will see her joining her family in Spain for the holidays – a perfect escape for the hard-working star.

"My mum ditched us and moved to Spain about 12 years ago, so now we all go to Spain for Christmas. Our tradition is to have Christmas dinner on Christmas Eve, because they don't really do Christmas until the 6th January over there."

"The cooking is done on Christmas Eve by my mum, she's a great cook and makes the best brussell sprouts," she says. "On Christmas day we go to the golf club across the road, they do the cooking for us and we do the drinking."

The super-fit model says that Christmas is the perfect time to relax, leaving the healthy living for January.

"Christmas is the time when you eat and drink whatever you want, and have as much of it as you want. It's not a time to be healthy, it's a time to be eating trifle, drinking baileys coffee and just enjoying yourself."

Vogue is joining HELLO!'s Celebrity Advent Calendar to raise funds for Great Ormond Street Hospital and Children's Charity.

"We're trying to keep families together this Christmas by supporting Great Ormond Street Hospital, so please give whatever you can to help," she appeals in her video message.

We hope that you will join Vogue and HELLO! by supporting this very worthy cause. We all like to be with our loved ones this time of year. For the families of patients at Great Ormond Street Hospital, this is especially true.

With your support, Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity could help fund family accommodation so mums, dads, brothers and sisters can stay close by, or help fund the creation of bigger rooms in new hospital wards so parents of the most seriously ill children can stay by their bedside 24 hours a day.

The charity also funds play specialists so that children can enjoy some festive fun despite going through very difficult times, and funds research and equipment that will enable the hospital to find new cures and save more lives.

Every donation to Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity will help keep families together this Christmas. And be sure to check back tomorrow to find out which of our wonderful celebs will be popping out from door number 22!
