She’s best known as a presenter, but Lucy Kennedy has admitted her secret dream is to be a soap star.

The Seven O’Clock Show host (39) told the Diary she was trying to persuade her bosses in TV3 to write her a part on the channel’s hit soap Red Rock.

“I’m obsessed with [Red Rock],” Lucy said.

“I’m desperately trying to get them to put me on the show.”

Red Rock has just returned for its second season and Lucy is more eager than ever to be featured on the soap.

But the mum-of-two added that she wouldn’t be settling for just any old walk-on role – she wants to be bad-guy Garda Brian McGonigle’s wife.

“We haven’t seen her yet and you either go all or nothing, no small part for me,” Lucy said, jokingly.

While there is no plans to write Lucy into the soap, she is working with TV3 on a new entertainment series after the channel scrapped their plans to bring back Blind Date. She recently admitted her hit show Living with Lucy was in the running to fill the slot.
