Amy and BOD sample Wimbledon ...but face the wrath of mimic Callan

HE'S taken off Katie Taylor, Rory McIlroy and Liam Neeson - now Ireland's golden couple Brian O'Driscoll and Amy Huberman are the latest to be targeted by impersonator Oliver Callan.

The comedian is posing as freshly retired rugby international BOD in the new episode of his TV sketch show on RTE and actress Amy is also being portrayed on-screen.

In Callan's Kicks, Oliver can be seen taking off Brian's Clontarf accent while pumping weights dressed in a Leinster jersey.

Actress Lisa Garvey can be seen posing as mother-of-one Amy and stands alongside Oliver in the scene, also donning a blues rugby shirt.

Brian has certainly been enjoying himself since hanging up his boots and bowing out of life on the pitch.

Having recently returned from a holiday in Los Angeles, the 35-year-old and Amy jetted over to London yesterday to watch the men's semi-finals at Wimbledon.

The couple had the best view in the house at the famous SW19 tennis club, as they were given tickets to the Royal Box.

While her other half looked dapper in a grey suit, Amy wore a blue and white print dress by Kilkenny's Folkster, the same vintage label she wore to Windsor Castle for the state banquet in April. The husband and wife were seated behind Prince Andrew Hollywood's Oscar nominated Bradley Cooper and his model girlfriend Suki Waterhouse.

Also enjoying the action from the Royal Box on semi-finals day yesterday were Jude Law, golfer Jack Nicklaus, American Vogue editor Anna Wintour and adventurer Bear Grylls.
