Rosanna Davison, the daughter of rock star Chris de Burgh, became the first Miss Ireland to win the Miss World beauty contest on Saturday 6th December 2003. Rosanna, then a 19-year-old Dublin University student beat more than 100 contestants to take the Miss World crown in Hainan, 'China's Hawaii', before a global television audience of millions.

When beautiful blonde Rosanna beat 105 other girls to be crowned Miss World, her mum and dad were cheering wildy from the audience. Moments later singer Chris de Burgh and wife Diane were pictured with tears of happiness in their eyes as they hugged their daughter.

"I could see the amazed look on their faces when they announced my name.They were jumping up and down punching the air with joy. I don't know who was more happy - them or me," said Rosanna.

Chris de Burgh said recently on "Rosanna will be coming to the end of her reign as Miss World, and she has had an extraordinary year. She has been to wonderful places like Ethiopia, Sri Lanka or America, China several times. She has done fabulous work for charity all over the world. She has grown as a young woman. She understands what people see when Miss World walks into a room." "I think she will look back on this year as one of the most extraordinary and interesting and exciting years of her life."

"I didn’t know she’d win it, because there were a lot of factors going against there. Not least the fact she had a famous father, and anybody voting for her might be accused subsequently of only voting for her because she had a famous Dad. However, she won that, but she won it and went into the Miss World competition, I just had this good feeling weeks, possibly months before, when I saw her appearing in public. I remember turning to my friend Kenny and I said “she’s gonna win Miss World, there’s something about her."

Rosanna eventually handed over the Miss World title in Sanya China to Miss World 2004 - Maria Julia Mantilla Garcia of PERU.

In June 2005 Rosanna was chosen as the face for the new 'Holiday on Ice' show 'DIAMONDS'. This came about during a meeting between Chris de Burgh and Holiday on Ice's Managing director Ruud Steenhuisen concerning the use of Chris ' song ' Diamond in the Dark '. After Ruud Steenhuisen had met Rosanna face to face, he didn't hesitate to contract her as the face for the DIAMONDS campaign.
