Born in Mazara Del Vallo in Sicily, Veronica aged 24 moved to Ireland with her Italian Mother, Irish Father and two sisters at the age of 4.

Veronica was always a bigger child, and her Sicilian Grandfather used to call her 'Sweetie' in Italian, which directly translates to 'little ball'. Her mother is a great cook and she even ran an Italian Chipper here in Ireland.

When Veronica started school she didn't speak any English, and she found it very difficult to make friends. She was bullied because of her weight and the fact that she was 'foreign'. Veronica turned to food for comfort.

After school Veronica went to UCC to study Commerce and Italian, however she couldn't continue after 1st year due the financial strain it put on her parents. She now works for SouthWestern BPO, and absolutely loves it there. This is also where she met her boyfriend Eoin. They've been together 10 months now and will be moving in together shortly.
