Jedward have just what it takes to win Eurovision says Amy
ACTRESS Amy Huberman has thrown her weight behind teen sensations Jedward in their bid to win Eurovision.
Amy was cheering on Louis Walsh's hugely successful singers as they fought off the competition in a Eurosong special edition of the Late Late Show.
"I love it, I love Jedward. I'm so happy for them," Amy told the Diary. "They're such gorgeous boys and hopefully they'll get through now.
"I think they could be in with a good shot. They're perfect for the Eurovision.
"They're fun, they're lively, they've so much enthusiasm and I think it's just brilliant that they're getting the opportunity to represent us," she added.
And while Amy was no doubt feeling the pain following her late night partying at the IFTAs on Saturday night, it didn't stop her stepping out again last night to console her hubby Brian O'Driscoll following his team's defeat at the Aviva stadium.
The former Clinic star was by her other half's side as the star couple joined teammates for a post-game dinner following their Six Nations clash against France.
Despite the disappointing result, Amy was still on cloud nine after her double win in the category of Lead Actress and Best Entertainment Series for My Bad Self the previous evening.
"It was a late night before the rugby," she said. "It was a big match so there's always like a game plan for the day.
"It was a bit of a mad scramble because we had to drop the stuff at the hotel before the match, go to the match, go back afterwards and get changed for another evening meal. It's never just going to the match but I love it.
"I'm delighted with the IFTAs win. It's always an honour even to be nominated in a category like that (Lead Actress).
"For My Bad Self to win was the icing on the cake because I loved doing that series so much."
Amy, who donned a stunning cream gown by Matt Doody from Powerscourt Town Centre for the red-carpet event, left her hubby at home in preparation for yesterday's big game, saying that it was "house rules" that he could not be out the night before a game.
Instead she was accompanied by her brother Mark, who is also an actor, as her date for the night.
Amy revealed how she had thoroughly enjoyed rubbing shoulders with Hollywood's elite and admits she would love to work with Brendan Gleeson or Stephen Rea.
The blonde beauty has just wrapped filming on a Stella Days with Martin Sheen and says it was a dream come true.
"It was fantastic," she said.
"He was the loveliest, kindest man in the world, everyone just fell in love with him."
