The Ray D'Arcy Show has landed an interview with Amanda Knox, the American woman who was wrongfully convicted of murdering British student Meredith Kercher in 2007.

Knox's boyfriend at the time, Raffaele Sollecito, was also wrongfully convicted of the murder of the 21-year-old British student in Puglia in Italy.

Knox and Kercher were both studying abroad in Italy when Kercher was found stabbed to death in their apartment.

During the trial and throughout her four years in an Italian prison, Knox was referred to as 'Foxy Knoxy' by the tabloid media.

She was acquitted 2011 but faced a retrial in 2014 after which she was acquitted again, and she will appear on The Ray D'Arcy Show on Saturday night to speak about her experience.

The now 30-year-old will reveal what it was like to be imprisoned in a foreign country for a crime she did not commit, the final twists of her fight to freedom, and how her life dramatically changed as a result of the highly publicised trial.

The Ray D'Arcy Show airs on RTE One on Saturday at 10pm.
