Beauty ahoy!

For twenty two and a half years Jill Hamilton worked in the Irish Naval service but now that ship has sailed and she has docked into the world of modelling.

The Navy's longest serving female official was recently chosen as the winner of the Cocoa Brown Ambassador competition and she is still trying to get to grips with it all.

Jill chats to Dermot and Dave about the how she spotted the opportunity by chance;

I was scrolling across Instagram and I saw Melissa Carter talking about advertising products unfiltered and unedited and that's such a positive thing to go down that route

The 40-year-old applied online and to her disbelief, she got the phone call a few weeks later saying she had won,"I thought it was actually a windup" she laughs.

The mum-of-one also reveals how harrowing some of her Defence Force trips were, telling the story of a Mediterranean mission where they saved over 2,000 people.

Brains, bravery and beauty - just call her G.I. Jill!
