After Susie, another Footballers' Wives star heading to city
FORMER Footballers' Wives star Susie Amy has become a regular visitor to Irish shores since she began dating Irish rugby hero Rob Kearney last year. And from next month we'll have another star of the show in our midst.
The Diary can reveal how British actor Ben Richards, best known for playing bad-boy Bruno Milligan in the hit ITV series, will be spending July here in Dublin, as he takes to the stage at the Grand Canal Theatre to play Captain Hook in the new musical, Peter Pan.
Richards (39) explained how he was looking forward to exploring the Irish countryside during his stay and is particularly keen to make it to the west of the country to do some sight-seeing.
The popular actor, who also previously starred on Holby City and The Bill, is hoping that his personal trainer wife, Helen, will have an opportunity to come and visit during some of his stint on stage between July 15 and August 6.
"I'm really excited about spending some time in Ireland, without a shadow of doubt I'll be doing some travelling around," he said.
"I'm looking forward to having a pint of Guinness and going out in Dublin.
"It'll be just me over but my wife might pop over to see the show."
