Amy stays home as BOD in London for big match

AMY Huberman was answering Ireland's Call at home in Dublin today as the rugby team faced England in an epic St Patrick's Day Six Nations clash in London.

Tickets for the match at Twickenham were like gold dust and even Ireland front row Cian Healy was forced to take to social networking sites to ask for more tickets for some pals.

Former captain Brian O'Driscoll, who is injured, is expected to attend the game but sources confirmed that his wife Amy is staying put.

The busy actress was in London earlier this week for a read-through of the second series of UK comedy series Threesome.

The funnywoman is also preparing for her NBC debut and was being quizzed by producers of Animal Kingdom about tattoos and piercings.

"NBC have asked me if I have any visible tattoos. I'm sort of regretting the tricolour I had done on my forehead for tomorrow," she joked.

And in perfect timing for the weekend that's in it, Amy's romcom Chasing Leprechauns, which was filmed around the Dublin and Wicklow area, will air on the Hallmark channel this weekend.

Full-back Rob Kearney's London-based girlfriend Susie Amy (inset above) is expected to attend.

England player Ben Foden will play his first match since becoming a dad after fiancee Una Healy (left) gave birth earlier this week.
