The mum-of-two used to be a regular fixture in the stands before Brian stopped playing, travelling around the world to cheer on her other half as he battled it out on the field.

"Brian will be over there and I'll be watching the Ireland games," she told the Diary.

"But it'll be strange this time not being there. Fingers crossed we'll do great."

Meanwhile, the 35-year-old has finished writing the screenplay for her movie Bolt which is based on her second book, I Wished for You. "It's all done, which is really exciting," she said.

Amy recently said she would love to star in the film, which is "a female-led romantic comedy about a woman who has commitment issues".
