Lucy Kennedy has revealed exclusively to Goss.ie the final celebrity she is hoping to live with in the final episode of Living with Lucy.
The presenter has a number of unreleased episodes of her show ready to air on Virgin Media One later this year, but she still has one final episode to record.
“We were going to get ten out before Christmas, but then Virgin Media decided to split them up to five before Christmas and then five after Ireland’s Got Talent. But I still need to film my fifth person,” Lucy told us.
“So it will go on the telly once I’ve filmed my fifth person, but I haven’t had time literally to fart, because obviously there’s Ireland Got Talent and then Christmas and then I’m on Radio Nova.”
“But now I kind of have a break to film more victim and I’m hoping it’s going to be Katie Price,” the presenter revealed.
“But I just heard that she might be in prison, so I’m going to be living with Katie Price in prison!” she joked.
When asked who her dream Living with Lucy celeb would be, the radio host revealed that she has her eye on Vincent Brown.
“This can be my call to camera – Vincent Brown you know who you are. Everybody wants to see Vincent, naked or in his pyjamas and I think it’s about time he did it!” Lucy joked.
The mother-of-three also chatted to us about the upcoming series of Ireland’s Got Talent, as she told us how the new series is going to be different to the last.
“I think last year, being the first year, people didn’t know what it was going to be like. I think they thought ‘Oh god, another talent show is here. It’s going to be really diddly-eye’ and I think they wanted to wait and see what it was like.”
“I think people were surprised by the production values, the fact that it’s the exact same as Britain’s Got Talent, just in Ireland. So more people applied, more variety, it’s bigger, it’s better.”
“It was all shot in the Helix this year, more money spent, more everything! I can’t explain it, it’s just a real ‘year two’, that’s the best way to say it. I’m really excited.”
Lucy also had a few stand-out moments from the auditions, one which of which may surprise fans, as she joked: “One of my stand-out moments from the auditions was probably Jason Byrne getting topless, which wasn’t pleasant for anybody and I’ll never be the same again.”
“And then my Golden Buzzer, as soon as the act walked out I started panicking going ‘okay, I need a microphone!.’ Because I was so worried, because the judges like the golden buzzer is right on front of them.”
“Where as I’ve got to walk off the stage, in stilettos and very tight leather trousers and find the golden buzzer. So I started panicking and I basically ran, and I don’t run clearly, and pressing all the buzzers.”
“So I think that was a stand-out moment, it was very emotional. My Golden Buzzer act is going to make the whole country cry,” she warned.
Lucy also revealed that a lot of singers auditioned for the second series, which she found to be a nice change from last year: “I think there were too many dance acts last year, because I suppose in terms of applications most of them were dancers. So you know it’s inevitable that there would be more.”
“So I’m glad to see the variety, there’s more children, we got more magicians. I think we’ve a better age group, I think our youngest is seven, I think our oldest ‘auditionee’ anyway was about ninety!”
“So there’s better variety, there’s more singers. I’m glad there’s more variety, definitely. There’s literally something for everyone.”
