Lucy Kennedy has signed up the pregnant wife of Ireland soccer star Shane Long for her reboot of Livin' With Lucy.

The bubbly presenter has started filming for her new reality show, which was previously a big hit on RTE but will now be shown on TV3 from next month.

Although details of the show are being kept under wraps until TV3's launch tomorrow, Kayleah Long let the cat out of the bag after revealing on her Twitter account how she had taken part on the show.

designer The 27-year-old former model and handbag designer told Lucy that it was a "pleasure having you" and added another message about filming the TV programme, saying: "Hope I haven't made a show of the family!"

The format of the show sees the Seven O'Clock presenter moving in with a well-known personality for a few days and giving viewers a bird's-eye view on their life.

There's no doubt the pair had plenty to talk about during their time together making the show - they're both pregnant with their third babies.

Kayleah is due her third baby in November, while Lucy is expecting her little one in December.

As well as introducing Lucy to the two adorable daughters she has with the Ireland international, namely Teigan (six) and Erin (two), she also took her to a soccer match to cheer on her hubby.

The Reading native brought Lucy to a game between Long's team, Southampton, and Sunderland. Long played a pivotal role in getting Ireland to the European Championships.

Last month, the Tipperary native signed a lucrative deal with the club that will take him up to 2020.

He married his stunning wife in July 2013 at a bash in Powerscourt.
