Model and nutrition guru Rosanna Davison may be in the middle of a major book tour, but that doesn't mean that she doesn't have time for tea with granny.

On a recent flying visit to Wexford town for a book signing, the former Miss World popped into granny Maeve at her home in Bargy Castle in Tomhaggard. She made sure to capture the moment with a photo, which she tweeted along with the caption 'tea and chats @ Wexford'.

The tea break was a much-needed rest for Rosanna, who had just finished signing copies of her book Eat Yourself Beautiful at the Wexford Book Centre. Crowds of health nuts showed up to meet the model, who signed copies of her new healthy recipe book and posed for plenty of photos.

Bargy Castle holds fond memories for Rosanna, who spent many childhood summers there with her family. The Tomhaggard residence was also the childhood home of Rosanna's father, Chris De Burgh who has always shown a strong love for his home. The singer has previously spoken about the castle's role in his career, saying that he used to sing and entertain guests in the dining room.
