Out and NI­AMH

From a glam selfie to booz­ing in bushes, it’s Amy

The Irish Mail on Sunday - - OUT AND ABOUT -

HIS show The Cut­ting Edge is tak­ing a break for the sum­mer but the Diary can re­veal that Bren­dan O’Con­nor will soon be back on screens with a new TV se­ries.

RTÉ sources say O’Con­nor will be host­ing a new pro­gramme but in­sisted that he won’t be re­plac­ing Miriam O’Cal­laghan, who re­cently revealed that she is tak­ing a break from her sum­mer chat show. AGEISM doesn’t just af­fect women in the movie world – Pa­trick Ste­wart says his ca­reer has also hit a brick wall. At 77, the leg­end, left, says he hasn’t been of­fered a role since Novem­ber. In typ­i­cally poetic fash­ion, he said: ‘A fas­ci­nat­ing, im­mensely en­joy­able and cre­ative life has sud­denly come to a halt…’ HAS Amy Hu­ber­man hit a rough patch? Our photo be­low shows the ac­tress hid­ing in some bushes while drink­ing from a bot­tle of spir­its with co­me­dian Ais­ling Bea.

In fact, Amy her­self posted the photo on In­sta­gram and it’s from a scene from her new RTÉ com­edy, Find­ing Joy, which she wrote and stars in. The cast also in­cludes Laura Whit­more.

And Amy looked rather more glam­orous in the pic­ture above, a selfie with Laura.

She added a note to the drink­ing photo: ‘We are avail­able for any top mod­el­ling for nag­gin/ hor­ti­cul­ture cam­paigns.’

The six-part com­edy is cur­rently film­ing. It fol­lows a sin­gle woman, Joy, af­ter a painful break-up who be­gins a search for hap­pi­ness in all the wrong places.

Laura Whit­more, bet­ter known as a TV pre­sen­ter, has re­cently dipped her toe into the act­ing world with a stage role.

RTÉ has de­scribed the se­ries as ‘warm and ir­rev­er­ent’. Amy has be­come a reg­u­lar face on RTÉ thanks to le­gal drama Strik­ing Out and her smaller role in the com­edy Can’t Cope, Won’t Cope.

Laura also posted some footage from the com­edy that shows her in a karate suit at­tack­ing a man.

Amy is also hop­ing that Find­ing Joy will help her fi­nally break the US mar­ket. NIALL HO­RAN has pitched up down un­der where he is a guest judge on The Voice Aus­tralia. And who chose the for­mer One Dir­erec­tioner to help them out on the show? None other than Delta Goodrem, pic­tured with Niall.

Delta, of course, dated Brian McFad­den many moons ago, af­ter he had split from his first exwife Kerry Ka­tona and be­fore mar­ry­ing his now sec­ond ex-wife Vogue Wil­liams.

Ex-Neigh­bours star Delta who is a huge hit as judge on The Voice was only de­lighted to wel­come Niall to help her pick her win­ning team.
