Daisy Lowe hates reading about herself.

The 26-year-old model has refused to Google herself for the last seven years as she doesn't want to read articles about her walking her dog.

She said: ''When I was 19 I decided never to read anything about myself.

''I know it comes with the territory, but I'd rather be known for the things I actually do rather than walking my dog.''

And despite hating the public side of her job, she loves its benefits - like being able to spend money on holidays or nice clothes.

She added: ''Money is a way of being able to facilitate having a good time. I love travelling and I love nice clothes.

''But I'm also terrible at holding on to money, because I always buy flights, dinners and things for my friends - so aside from my house and a nice wardrobe, I don't have much to show for it.''

Daisy also ensures she keeps herself healthy both mentally and physically by doing transcendental meditation every day.

She told The Guardian newspaper: ''I do 20 minutes of transcendental meditation every morning, and I try to do it in the afternoon, too. It is supposed to be the equivalent of three hours' sleep.

''It settles me, gives my brain a bit of space from itself. I have definitely suffered from depression - it comes in waves - and I think it's incredible if you don't.''
