RUGBY star Cian Healy was left red-faced after being punked by his model girlfriend Holly Carpenter.

The couple feature on new hidden camera show Foul Play which will air on RTE2 next Monday.

"We filmed it ages ago," Holly said. "I was a bit nervous because I didn't know how he would respond.

"Cian is really camera-shy, but he loves pranks -- he's pranked me loads of times, so I thought I'd get him back."

Holly met with the show's producers to devise a scenario that would drive prop Cian to distraction.

"I made a list of things that would really wind him up," she said. "The prank happened in a restaurant -- there were loads of hidden cameras and everybody there was an actor."

"Cian gets really annoyed when people come up to him when he's out and start talking non-stop rugby, so we had a few people doing that.

"And the waiter was being really flirtatious with me whenever he was taking our order. Stuff like that would really wind him up."

When all was revealed, Leinster and Ireland star Cian laughed it all off.

"He says he's going to get me back," said Holly. "I've been watching out, but he'll prank me when I least expect it."

Hosted by Aidan Power, Foul Play features other sports stars: boxer Kenneth Egan is pranked by Ryan Tubridy and Derry City boss Roddy Collins tricks members of his team.
