Rob's ex Amy is back in town as a star of the stage

THE former girlfriend of rugby hunk Rob Kearney (26) will be in town all this week as Susie Amy (31) treads the boards in the Gaiety Theatre.

The well-known actress has obviously thrown herself in her work in the wake of their split last summer, starring in Agatha Christie classic Murder On The Nile.

Having toured all over Britain, the play debuted here at the start of the week and sees Amy taking on the part of Kay Mostyn.

It co-stars Nichola McAuliffe and Robert Duncan from Drop The Dead Donkey.

No stranger to these shores, gorgeous Susie will no doubt be loving being back in Dublin for the week as she receives favourable reviews for her stint on the stage.

And there's even speculation that she could well be meeting up with her Leinster star ex for a coffee while she's over here.

Clearly one of the most amicable break-ups ever, the pair have been in regular contact since their split, which was blamed on the long distance between them.

Only this week, Susie and Rob were tweeting each other again as they continue keeping things civil in the wake of their love split.

The pair dated for more than three years and managed to see each other regularly, despite living in different countries.

Neither of them have been publicly linked with anyone new since going back on the market, despite muscular rugby star Rob recently being named as Ireland's Hottest Man in an online poll.
