TV presenter Lucy Kennedy has revealed she is so busy at the moment that she will wait until September before deciding on a return to The Six O'Clock Show.

The mum-of-three says she currently has her hands full with her other show - Living With Lucy.

Kennedy (41) left the TV3 chat show she co-hosts with Martin King to go on maternity leave and was replaced by Deirdre O'Kane and most recently Samantha Mumba.

"I don't know, Living With Lucy is going to be so time-consuming from now to September that I don't think I'm going to have time to do anything else," she said.

"I'm going to stick with Living With Lucy from now until September and then I'll have to make a decision as to what I'm going to do," she told the Herald.

"But right now, I can only concentrate on Living With Lucy because we have 10 to shoot." Kennedy will spend the summer months filming the next series of the programme.

Last year's series saw the TV presenter move in with the likes of Kerry Katona, Shane Long, Al Porter and Finbar Furey.

The new series will feature 10 episodes with Kennedy previously revealing she is targeting the likes of Marco Pierre White and Celebrity Big Brother star Kim Woodburn. "We're shooting every second weekend and we have the research and the production and the voicing of the programme," she said.

Her family life is also keeping her busy. The Sandycove woman gave birth to Jess last December and is already mum to Jack (7) and Holly (5).

"I'm very happy with what we have. Three was my magic number and thank God it happened."

Kennedy has found the media business a tough world to survive in. "I went from runner to researcher to production co-ordinator, you name it, I did it.

"When I got in front of the camera, I found it's a precarious old business.

"I presented Weekend Breakfast on 2fm, everything was going so well and then we were fired," she said.

TV3 did not comment on her future with the show.
