Back in Sydney after an action packed and event filled two weeks in London, I'm reminiscing the fondest moments of Mr World 2012.
Recording links with Myleene before the Mr World FinalI miss the 5 star accommodation, the amazing food, the schedules, the busyness of every day, the filming, the rehearsals and the pressure to perform. The healthy competitiveness that lingered for the duration of the contest, the camaraderie and the friendships that were made... It is an experience like no other and one I will not soon forget.
Congratulations to our new Mr World, Francisco Escobar from Colombia. I wish him even more success than I have managed and I am sure he will be a great ambassador for the organisation.
'Crowning' the new Mr World
Mr World 2012 - Francisco Escobar
It may be the end of my reign but it is also the dawn of a new era; not just for me but also for Francisco. I will continue to work with the MWO on what I hope will be on many more events around the world. My commitments to the humanitarian and fund raising efforts still stand.
I'm also looking forward to playing Noah in my first lead role in a short film this month. The next 4 weeks will see me complete my diving and gliding training and my friends, fans and family can expect to see me on their television screens in Ireland come January. There is much to look forward to and much to prepare for... and if Francisco does the job I imagine he will, he too will be stepping onto greater things when the time comes for him to handover his title.

Stay tuned :)
